Control Biofouling and lower Fuel Consumption
The LG Sonic devices emit specific ultrasonic parameters in order to prevent biofouling in hulls en sea chests.
Biofilm formation starts by bacteria attaching to a surface. The ultrasonic sound waves of LG Sonic create resonance around the solid surfaces within the water, thereby preventing bacteria to adhere to a surface. EPS, present in an existing biofilm, is directly targeted, degrading the biofilm. When bacteria, algae and biofilm are reduced, as a result, the dosage of biocide and/or antifouling measures can also be reduced.
