Industry : Pharmaceutical & Biotech Industry, Agriculture Industry, Waste Management Industry, Research Institutes

Fermex has emerged as an industry leader by launching BioSFX series Solid-State Fermenters (SSF). Solid state fermentation technology incarnates massive potential for high productivity by offering direct fermentation of solids in powder form. BioSFX series follow ASME BPE-2016 standards and are made up of high grade stainless steel SS316L with superior corrosion resistance properties. Our lab scale SSF are ranging from 10L to 40L. We also offer custom builds on request. Automation modes are available (Basic, Semi, and Fully Automatic). BioSFX series is an asset for various fields such as enzyme production.
