The miniGaLF is IDEC`s entry level GaLF model designed for companies, universities, research institutes and people who want to learn about ultrafine bubble technology. The miniGaLF provides a lot of possibilities to design your own ultrafine bubble application as it is easy to fit and retrofit in existing machines and processes. In the simplest setup just connect the miniGaLF to your water tap and add a gas source either from a compressor or a gas cylinder with pressure regulator and you are ready to go. In the more advanced setup, you can add a recirculation system to make higher concentrations of Ultrafine bubble water, which we call -Plus. The -Plus version requires a check valve a pump, a recirculation tank and depending on the pump you might need an inverter.
When you connect the miniGaLF straight to the water fossett, the number concentration of Ultrafine Bubbles in 1 ml after 1 pass (1-minute run with 7.5 liters’ tank) are 70~80 million bubbles per ml. Measurement done with NanoSight at IDEC R&D facility using city tap water. When you want higher concentrations of bubbles i.e. 100 million or more than two or more passes of the water through the miniGaLF via water recirculation needs to be set-up. We call this the miniGaLF -Plus version.
For the miniGaLF -Plus model, the user needs to prepare a pump, a water tank with a water inlet and outlet and a check-valve to protect the pump and tubing. Depending on the pump you select, you might have to add an inverter box.
The miniGaLF can handle all non-corrosive gases such as, air, O2, N2, CO2. The miniGaLF is not suitable for use with ozone for disinfection applications. The miniGaLF produces bubbles intermittently, during operation it takes in only water or gas, during the gas intake which lasts about 5 seconds, the bubble generator releases no bubbles and water. After gas intake there will be a production cycle of about 45 seconds of ultrafine bubble or micro bubble water. Depending on the model.
