Project: Biotech Industrial Production of Algae

Industrial Application with Buzon Pedestals: In this outdoor microalgae production facility, elevated pipes, also known as tubular photobioreactors, are essential for the efficient cultivation and harvesting of algae. These pipes are integral to a closed-loop system designed to enhance algae growth, optimize nutrient delivery, and streamline harvesting. Within these tubes, algae flow continuously, maximizing their exposure to sunlight and nutrient-rich water. These biotech systems prioritize cost-effectiveness and the ability to function outdoors in direct sunlight, even on minimally improved land. Buzon pedestals were employed to elevate and support the tubes and pipes in this industrial operation.

Type: Industrial Commercial Application
Project Name: ALGATEC Eco Business Park 
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Components: Buzon Pedestals, Joist Holders, Wood Joists

Benefits of Using Buzon Pedestals for Industrial Applications

  • Wide range of pedestal heights from 18 to 955 mm (PB-Series) and 11 to 1130mm (BC-Series)
  • High stability due to large pedestal base
  • Open joints facilitate water evacuation
  • UV-resistant and high chemical resistance
  • Withstands weather conditions and climates with a temperature rating from – 50° C to + 120° C.
  • Height-adjustable and slope-correcting
  • Each pedestal holds 2,200 lbs (1,000 lbs design load)
