  • Transformation of azo dyes during moist heat sterilisation: a potential source of error in microbial decolourisation

    This paper presents the role of moist heat sterilisation in decolourisation of azo dyes during autoclaving itself, thereby leading to over estimation of actual decolourisation through subsequent microbial process. This surprise phenomenon was probed in detail by studying the effects of temperature, pressure and role of electron donor/carbon sources on decolourisation. In the presence of 10 ...

  • Disruption of Synechocystis PCC 6803 for lipid extraction

    In order to extract intracellular lipids from cyanobacterial Synechocystis PCC 6803 for biofuel production, seven cell-disruption methods – autoclaving, bead beating, freeze drying, French press, microwave, pulsed electric fields (PEF), and ultrasound – were tested prior to lipid extraction to make intracellular lipids more accessible by organic solvents. The different methods brought about ...

  • Auotclaves and Nitrogen. Why an Oxygen Monitor may be Required for Safety

    In many industries, including aerospace, autoclaves play an important role in the manufacturing process. Key components of aerospace systems need to be put under an intense pressure and temperature during their formation; at present, an autoclave offers the best and safest way to do this. However, the manufacturing process usually uses nitrogen to create high levels of pressure in the system and ...

  • Sources and levels of potentially toxic elements in the biodegradable fraction of autoclaved non-segregated household waste and its compost/digestate

    Waste that reflected the average UK composition of household waste was treated by autoclaving at the three set pressure/temperature levels of 2.7 bar/130 °C, 6.2 bar/160 °C and 15.5 bar/200 °C. The biodegradable fraction of the autoclaved household waste ('floc') was manually separated by screening and underwent characterization for its Cd, Cr, Cu, Pb, Hg, Ni, and Zn content. Autoclaving did not ...
