Algae control in lakes
Most advanced and environmentally friendly solution to control algae in large water surfaces.
Both in lakes, large ponds, water reservoirs and public waters, the growth of blue-green algae constitute a formidable problem. These types of algae represent a group of bacteria, known as cyanobacteria. They give rise to a distinct foul odour and are also known to produce toxins. These toxins can cause various discomforts and illnesses. LG Sound offers high tech monitoring and controlling systems to prevent and control harmful algae blooms.
Solutions offered in lakes
Even in large lakes, algae growth can efficiently be controlled using LG Sonic. The LG Sonic technology control existing algae but also prevents the formation of new algae blooms, lowering TSS and BOD levels.
Reduce bad odour and taste
Certain species of algae produce toxins and other metabolites (geosmin and MIB) that cause malodour and health hazards. The LG Sonic technology reduces this problem by controlling the algae without breaking cell walls, thus releasing toxins and preserving fish and plant health
Avoid chemical use
By using LG Sonic, dosage of algaecides or other additives can be reduced or completely stopped. Chemical algaecides are often employed as algae control methods but require frequent dosing and are not always effective. Algaecides offer limited selectivity, forming a threat to other organisms in the water
The LG Sonic MPC detects algae with monitoring equipment and automatically uses the correct frequency program to control them. It can be anchored in the middle of the lake, is powered by solar panels and is almost maintenance free.
Installation in a lake
Depending on the size and shape of the lake the MPC-Buoy or LG Sonic e-Line can be used:
Moured in the middle of the lake, the LG Sonic MPC-Buoy will monitor the water quality and based on that designs an ultrasonic program to combat the algae. The range of the MPC-Buoy is 500 meter diameter. more information about MPC-Buoy
LG Sonic e-Line:
This device is installed at the shore of the lake. The LG Sonic e-Line has a range of 200 meters, for lakes with a maximum width of 400 meters, a combination of e-Line’s can be used to cover the complete water surface. The advanced LG Sonic e-line units can be installed connected to the main power supply or power on solar energy. More information about LG Sonic e-line
