The system combines Electro Water Separation™ and state-of-the-art controls to harvest microalgae continuously and on a flow-through basis. Smart Algae Harvester efficiently creates a high-quality concentrate by adjusting process conditions in response to conditions in the algae culture, removing up to 99% of the incoming water volume and for an approximately ~5% solids concentrate (by dry weight). Higher concentrations are available through the Density line of add-ons.
