Vertical Profiling System

The most accurate and cost-efficient way to measure the entire water column.

  • Measures in high resolution
  • Collects data at various depths
  • 50% more affordable

Game-changing profiler

Designed for large water bodies

With our automated Vertical Profiling System, you save time and money on monitoring and responding. The Profiler can be pre-set to take samples from a wide range of depths within a (large) water body and measures key water characteristics in real-time. Data is transmitted through 4G, radio, or satellite to the MPC-View online software.

  • User-friendly software included
  • Set alarms and alerts
  • Easy to install & maintain

Collects key water parameters

You get a complete overview of your water quality by collecting the following parameters in real-time:

  • Chlorophyll α (green algae)
  • Phycocyanin (blue-green algae)
  • Ammonium
  • Turbidity
  • Dissolved Oxygen
  • Temperature
  • Redox
  • Chemical Oxygen Demand
Extra parameters and vertical profiling available upon request
  • Applications
  • Installation
  • Maintenance

Used across industries

  • Raw/industrial/irrigation reservoirs
  • Lakes
  • Dams
  • Cooling ponds
  • Aquaculture ponds
  • Wastewater treatment plants
  • Power plants
  • Settling ponds
  • wastewater lagoons

Fast & easy installation

The Profiler has a modular design, allowing you to install it without a crane or large equipment.

Real-time insights

Collects data in real-time and delivers it to a user-friendly online software. You can access this anytime, from anywhere in the world.

Specific to your needs

Can be upgraded with ultrasonic transmitters to control algae blooms, as well as a weather station and/or additional sensors for even more accurate data.

View your water quality data anytime, anywhere

Once you purchase the Vertical Profiling System, you get access to the MPC-View, our online water quality monitoring software. Designed to be user-friendly. Provides a complete picture of your water body at every monitored location.

With the MPC-View, you gain valuable real-time insights into water quality and possible harmful events or pollutants. You can create specific rules that will trigger an email alert when pre-determined parameters are breached.

Read full case study
The installation of MPC-Buoys in the Philippines has significantly improved discharge water quality and reduced the cost of filter cleaning maintenance during PGPRC's mining operation.
American Water
Seven years ago, American Water was the first customer to believe in LG Sonic’s technology. We’re proud of our ongoing, strong partnership.
Anglian Water
Anglian Water reduced up to 95% of algae counts with ultrasonic treatment. The Alton WTW supplies water to 92,214 properties in the Suffolk area, U.K.
Saeta Yield
Saeta Yield is a power generation plant in western Spain. Their raw water pond contained excessive algae, causing pipes, filters, and pumps to clog.
City of Minneapolis
WTDS’ greatest concern was that algae would clog membranes in the filtration plant. LG Sonic became an integral part of the treatment process.
World Waternet
Algae were degrading the water quality in a water source for 1.3 million citizens. The company achieved 50% algae reduction within 2 months.
Luxor Water Company
South West Water
South West Water was one the first utilities in the UK to install the MPC-Buoy in their water treatment process back in 2014.
With the help of MPC-Buoy technology, EPM could control algal blooms even in extreme environmental conditions caused by “El Niño’’ in 2015-2016.
Since using the MPC-Buoy, NIPSCO’s TSS levels have never exceeded the monthly average for compliance. This year, they won the Power Mag Water Award.
City of Archie
Drinking water reservoir
CAASD’s Valdesia reservoir has a surface of 7km²/1700 acres. After years of algae bloom contamination, the utility achieved 87% chlorophyll a reduction.
Vallecitos Water District
Vallecitos Water District significantly improved TSS, pH, and DO levels. Vallecitos can now provide even higher quality water to their customers.
Three Rivers
A popular public open space with 2 lakes used for water skiing, fishing and sailing was contaminated with algae blooms.
American Crystal Sugar
American Crystal Sugar Company is the first company in the sugar beets industry to start using ultrasound technology to improve water quality.
Auckland Utility
NZ utility needed to reduce blue-green algae in a dam used for water supply. During summer, algae cause damage and increase the process costs.
Dubai Municipality
Dubai Municipality selected MPC-Buoy systems to control algae blooms because it's chemical-free and offers real-time water quality monitoring.
Town of Emmitsburg
The main objective was reducing algae during summer, as well as reducing chemicals costs, decreasing backwashes, and preventing clogged filters.
Town of Superior
Town of Superior was named after the "superior" quality of coal found in the area. The town’s raw water supply delivers water to approximately 12,483 citizens.
Pile fuel storage pond
To improve water visibility in Sellafield's storage ponds, 4 LG Sonic systems were installed. These systems have 12 ultrasonic programs that control algae.
Many lakes in Poland generally suffer from cyanobacterial blooms during summer. The algae issue was mitigated with the help of LG Sonic systems.
Salto Grande
Salto Grande: “In open water systems, LG Sonic raises one of the best responses within the existing technologies, sustainable over time.”
