Batch Processing

The completion of a number of tasks by a computer without manual input by a person. A computer can be programmed to use batch processing in order to make it faster and more efficient. Batch processing traces its roots to the invention of the modern computer in the 1950s and 1960s.

In flow-through systems, larvae can receive a constant and optimal amount of algae, which does not occur in a batch system where there is higher mortality of microalgae, thus favoring bacteria growth in larviculture tanks (ANDERSEN et al., 2000; TORKILDSEN; MAGNESEN, 2004; MAGNESEN et al., 2006).
Following the addition of the nanoparticles a shift to chemically reducing Eh and near-zero DO was recorded within 15 minutes of reaction for all batch systems (Figure 1).
The advantages of using the continuous process, conceptually more modem than batch system, are simplicity, full automation, reproducibility, but also high energy savings, considering specific energy (more than 50% lower than batch systems), with the only disadvantage of requiring free-flowing raw materials.
Batch systems are passive, open-loop systems in which a large storage tank--often a discarded electric water heater, minus the outside covering and insulation-is painted black and placed inside an insulated box with a tempered-glass or other suitable translucent covering, which is angled toward the sun.
