Pilot Scale SIP Fermentation System 10L/30L - for all bioprocess engineering standards


The Winpact pilot and production scale bioreactor/fermentation system offers all of the user's large scale fermentation needs. Our standard SIP (Sterilization in Place) fermentation system provides high quality and excellent compatibility to meet all the bioprocess engineering standards. All of our features are designed to provide high level of productivity and automation while maintaining a low operational cost. Our system ranges from 50 L to 1000L working volume.



  • Two models for selection: 10L and 30L working volume
  • Maximum speed range up to 1,000 rpm
  • Stainless Steel double jacketed vessel for excellent temperature control
  • ABS panel with compact smart controller
  • Newly developed Linux based software interface for easy operation and virus-proof
  • Energy and budget saving built-in steam generator for sterilization purpose
  • System expansion with varies optional devices to enhance fermentation process
  • Compact and easy installation with platform and wheels for easy rolling
  • Immediate visualization on operation overview
  • Easy and intuitive operation for manual and sequence control
  • Online system calibration with system feedback
  • System Expansion with varies optional devices


Technical Specifications:

  • Capacity: 10L
  • Total volume: 15L
  • Working volume: 10L
  • Vessel and jacket maximum working pressure: 3 barg (43.5 psig) / 4 barg (58 psig)
  • Type: Double layered fully enclosed capsule-type tank, with an outer temperature protective layer
  • Material: Direct contact to medium - SUS316L; all others - SUS304
  • Surface finish:
  • Interior polish <= 20 Ra/in (0.5 µm) Mechanical polishing; Electropolish optional
  • Exterior polish <= 32 Ra/in (0.8 µm) Mechanical polishing; Electropolish optional
  • Ports: Ports designed according to user requirements
  • Piping and valve materials: Parts that come in direct contact with the product/medium uses SUS-316L EP (=20 Ra/in) internal polished tubing (BPE standard) :

A) Internal EP polished diaphragm type pneumatic valve and manual valve (BPE standard)

B) Tubing all welded with Orbital Welding

C) Vessel bottom drain uses a diaphragm valve, to minimize dead volume

D) Piping designed for ease of transfer to scale up (can be used as a seed fermentation system) or downstream process

Parts that do not directly contact product/medium

A) Constructed with SUS304 stainless steel
