The antifouling system from LG Sonic emits ultrasound waves in order to prevent biofouling.
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. Cooling towers that are being treated with LG Sonic, generally have lower BOD5 and COD levels, even when water with a high COD is being used as make-up water.
Chameleon Technology™ makes it possible to change the ultrasonic program according to the water conditions, type of biofilm and type of application, thereby providing the most effective solution for each specific situation.
Reduces fouling by up to 80% on the hull and prevents the growth of new biofilm.
Because of the continual protection the hull remains clean with no need for dry-docking.
Ultrasound effectively prevents biofouling without the use of harmful chemicals and without harming the marine ecosystem
By preventing the biofilm from growing a remarkable reduction in fuel of consumption is achieved.
Due to our marine grade design mounting footprint technology it is very easy to install the system.
Avoid damage to industrial systems such as to filters. The anticorrosion layers will be preserved.
