Unformatted text preview: concentration equals 25.0 g/l with sterile feed, what dilution rate will give the maximum total rate of cell production? Assume that the Monod kinetic constants are m μ = 0.03 per hr and s K = 1.57 g/l. The yield coefficient is given by s x Y / = 0.6. [35%] What are the outlet cell and substrate concentrations at this dilution rate? [15%] (3) Using the organism of Question 2, your boss would like you to design a continuous reactor system with an inlet flow and substrate concentration of 250 l/hr and 25 g/l, respectively. Assume no cells or product in the system inlet. Would you recommend a single fermenter or two fermenters in series? You need not to work out the numerical solution. Only discuss how you would find the answer for this design problem. [25%]...
