Algae

Ultrasonic algae control

The LG Sonic Industrial Line Wet emits specific ultrasonic frequencies in order to control algae in smaller water surfaces such as irrigation reservoirs, cooling basins and other industrial applications.

  • Multiple ultrasonic frequency programs for effective control of algae
  • Ultrasonic treatment allows for the reduction of chemical consumption
  • No use of cavitation for a longer product lifetime

Biofouling

Biofouling prevention with ultrasound

Biofouling prevention with ultrasound reduces chemical usage and prevents fouling problems in cooling towers, sea chests, heat exchangers and pipes.

  • Prevent the growth of biofouling
  • Reduce chemical expenses
  • Prevent clogging of filters and pumps
  • Local biofouling treatment in cooling towers

Eliminated chemical usage in the raw water reservoir

Addressing episodic taste and odor events Four solar-powered algae control buoys were installed in the Canoe Brook Reservoir #1 in Short Hills, NJ to assess the impact of the system for controlling algae and cyanobacteria in the raw water reservoir. The four buoys operated for five months in the spring/summer 2014. As an alternative to copper-based algaecides, the use of ultrasonic treatment can be used to control algae. Ultrasonic treatment uses high frequency sound waves to attack the algal cells….

Reduced blue-green algae counts

Improve water visibility After the installation of multiple LG Sonic Industrial Wet Systems in a nuclear power plant of Sellafield (UK) the water visibility in the storage ponds improved significantly. As a result of the ultrasonic systems there has been an exceptional reduction in blue-green algae and chlorophyll levels in the storage ponds. Sellafield, a nuclear fuel reprocessing and nuclear decommissioning site, handles nearly all radioactive waste generated by 15…

69 % reduction in biocide dosage in cooling basin

Prevent biofouling and reduce chemical dosage The challenge was to prevent biofouling and reduce chemical dosage reduce chemical dosage for water treatment and at the same time controlling factors that may cause problems such as corrosion, scaling and microbial activity. Al Futtaim Cooling district plant incorporated the LG Sonic technology into their chemical treatment program to reduce the biocide consumption in the cooling towers and improve the water quality. Ultrasonic biofouling treatment uses high frequency…
