Why Algoliner?

Why does the Algoliner concept outperform conventional systems in cost, sustainability and versatility?

 

Costs/Savings

 
  • No joints needed to connect pipe elements 

  • Wall thickness of Algoliner profiles is only ⅓ of conventional pipes

  • No transport of profiles, as they all are produced on site

  • All components are produced with mass production technology

  • Fewer holding racks needed through patented hanging profiles

Algoliner proposes significant potential savings for 100 000 Liter PBR compared to conventional plastics and glass pipe PBRs:

Savings compared to conventional Plastic

  • 7500 and 8500 fewer joints (depending on pipes length)

  • 15.5 tonnes of raw material for pipes

  • Four truck loads to transport plastic pipes

  • 25 special transport cases to transport plastic pipes

  • 40% less material for holding racks

savings compared to convention Glass

  • 7500 and 8500 fewer joints (depending on pipe length)

  • 27 tonnes of raw material for profiles

  • Four truck loads to transport glass pipes

  • 25 special transport cases to transport plastic profiles

  • 40% less material for holding racks

 

Sustainability

 

Versatility

 
  • Designed for operational lifetime of at least 20 years

  • Usage of recyclable Plexiglas (PMMA)

  • Low general energy consumption (both installation and operation of PBR driven by solar energy)

 
  • Luminous transmittance of Algoliner Acrylic glass identical to glass

  • Variable profile length through on site production

  • Acrylic glass exceptionally heat and weather resistant (30 year warranty by raw material supplier)

  • Acrylic glass profiles may be chemically and/or heat welded with its monomer hence à problem-free integration of sensors and pump connections

  • Our Acrylic glass components are in accordance with all international food contact regulations

  • Other than round shapes feasible for profiles hence à problem-free realisation of multi-channel profiles for CO2 feed-in or illumination
