Algae Harvesting Experiment 2 (Integrating the Spiral)

We are basing this experiment on the following project:


Air pump (Introduces necessary air to the algae)

Clear plastic tubing (Houses the algae)

Check Valve (prevents water from entering the air pump when it’s powered down)

Brass Fittings (allows the air pump to connect to the tubing)

Plastic Tee (provides path for air to enter tubes…not sure if this is necessary)

90 Degree “L” Fitting (allows drain when harvest overflows)

Plastic Container (catches excess algae at the top of the spiral)
