Introducing The Nalco Yeast Activity Monitor

  1. 1. The Nalco Yeast Activity Monitor Phil Bureman pebureman@nalco.com 913-708-4969 SM Essential Expertise for Water, Energy and Air 1
  2. 2. The Nalco Yeast Activity Monitor Is Cell Counting A Good Method For Monitoring Your Fermentors? • It has been used for decades, but ……….. • Cell counting is: – Time consuming • 10-12 minutes per sample – Subjective and highly variable/person • Lots of opportunity for error and “pencil testing” • Cell counting samples just a small population – 100’s of yeast cells tested • YAM evaluates a much larger population – 1,000,000’s of yeast cells Would you like to know more about anExpertise for Water, Energy and Air Essential alternative? SM 2
  3. 3. The Nalco Yeast Activity Monitor Why Use It? SM Essential Expertise for Water, Energy and Air 3
  4. 4. The Nalco Yeast Activity Monitor Why Use It? • Provides a direct measure of yeast activity: – During propagation & fermentation • The YAM measures only viable (vs live/dead) cells • The YAM also measures cell vitality – Metabolic rate (Old person vs young person) • The YAM data correlates accurately to real ethanol production • The YAM is capable of running up to four samples at the same time in one piece of equipment – Vs one cell count per microscope SM Essential Expertise for Water, Energy and Air 4
  5. 5. The Nalco Yeast Activity Monitor Why Use It? • The YAM generates precise and accurate data • All data is: – Logged – Readable on any computer – Can be shared via e-mail – Can communicate with the DCS • The YAM is great for determining optimum drop time in yeast propagation process – Better timing means increased productivity SM Essential Expertise for Water, Energy and Air 5
  6. 6. The Nalco Yeast Activity Monitor Why Use It? • Establish site specific fermentation trends • Identify abnormal fermentation conditions – Confirm bacteria infections earlier • Use for trials on: – new yeast strains – New enzymes or antibiotics – New nutrient sources, etc. SM Essential Expertise for Water, Energy and Air 6
  7. 7. The Nalco Yeast Activity Monitor The YAM Activity Is Indicative of Traditional Cells Counts SM Essential Expertise for Water, Energy and Air 7
  8. 8. The Nalco Yeast Activity Monitor Benefit Summary • More efficient use of materials and labor – Less cost – Less hassle • Faster identification and reaction to problems – More Profits • Faster confirmation of process improvements – More Knowledge • Increased propagation and fermentation efficiency – More profits • Optimized ethanol production for each plant – More profits SM Essential Expertise for Water, Energy and Air 8
  9. 9. Nalco YAM Value Proposition What Does It Cost? • Nalco offers a one year and two year purchase option • There is also an inexpensive one month trial available • For a price quote, contact Phil Bureman at: – 913-708-4969 – pebureman@nalco.com • http://www.nalco.com/applications/yeast- activity-monitor.htm SM Essential Expertise for Water, Energy and Air 9
