Reduce Taste and Odor problems

The algae control devices from LG Sonic emit specific ultrasonic parameters in order to control harmful algal blooms in raw water reservoirs.

Cyanobacteria growing in drinking water reservoirs can produce geosmins, giving the water an “earthy “taste. The presence of organic material in the water results in THM formation, when the water is treated with chemicals. LG Sonic products can control the growth of algae without breaking the cell walls and prevents the algae from floating up to the surface, reducing biomass along with the presence of toxins and geosmins.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

Effective treatment to control algae

The products are developed in collaboration with several renowned universities and research institutes. The LG Sonic system eliminates up to 90% of the current algae and prevents the growth of new algae.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

Safe for the environment

Reduce expensive and environmentally unfriendly chemicals. Safe solution for fish, plants, zooplankton, and insects which has been tested by various universities and research institutes.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

Prevent the occurrence of toxic blue-green algae

Toxins from the algae can cause a bad taste and smell to the water and potentially cause diseases.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

Reduce chemical dosage

Reduce expensive and environmentally unfriendly chemicals.

Ultrasonic Algae Control Benefits

Easy Installation and Maintenance

Can be deployed quickly and easily without the need for a crane. The system is easily accessible for maintenance while deployed.

MPC-Buoy and LG Sonic Monitoring Buoy are modular units that are easy to assemble and install. Because the construction is light, you only need a small boat to drag the device to the center of the lake, where the unit can be installed and moored.
