Control algal blooms and TSS levels

Real-time insights

In water quality and algae levels

Large reservoirs

Suitable for extended surface and water depth

Minimal maintenance

Easy installation and self cleaning transmitter

Improve quality in used and treated water

Uncontrolled algal growth in water bodies can lead to high levels of pH, BOD and TSS, making the extraction process, wastewater treatment and its disposal difficult.

Treating algal blooms and monitoring water quality with LG Sonic technology improves water parameters, reduces further costs and productivity impacts, and prevents equipment clogging with minimal maintenance.

NIPSCO case study
NIPSCO chooses a greener path to comply with NPDES

Complying with NPDES regulations In the search of an eco-friendly and effective solution to comply with NPDES discharge regulations, NIPSCO installed 5 MPC-Buoy systems at R. M. Schahfer Generating Station in Indiana, USA. High TSS and pH are mainly caused by algal blooms which are now treated with the ultrasound technology of LG Sonic. NIPSCO uses a large reservoir for settling out suspended solids prior to discharging the water back…

Vallecitos Water District
Improved water quality with MPC-Buoy

 Improving water quality In sunny California, MPC-Buoy technology is controlling algae in reclaimed water since 2018. Vallecitos Water District provides 5.25 million gallons recycled water for irrigation every day. TSS levels need to be low to fulfil the demands of modern irrigation systems. Algae increases TSS and clogs the filters that are in place to remove TSS prior to the distribution to the irrigation systems. This allows for less…

Dubai Municipality
73% blue-green algae reduction in Dubai

Reducing algae growth In August 2018, LG Sonic began a new project in Dubai in collaboration with the Dubai Municipality to control algal blooms in the Al Qudra lakes. The lakes were created by the municipality as part of a project to enrich this part of the Dubai desert. To control the algal blooms, three MPC-Buoys were installed. After 60 days, it was clear that the systems improved the water…

Algae problems in the oil & gas industry

Managing water is vital in the daily operations, as it is used in all stages: development, extraction, and processing.

Due to sourcing limitations and required parameters of treated water, efficient solutions are key for water monitoring and control the problems caused by algal blooms, which are relatively common in prolonged water stagnation and warm and nutrient-rich waters.
