Cavetation to increase c02 Levels

Postby tntncsu » Mon Jun 15, 2009 4:21 am

Has anyone experimented with using cavitation to increase c02 levels in their bio-reactors. I imagine you'd have to introduce it in a water stream before it got to the area where algae was grown, or risk tearing the algae cells open when the bubbles burst. If it could be done, I suspect it would greatly increase the saturation of c02 in the water, and make c02 more easily accessable to the algae than air stones. Has anyone tried this? thoughts?
