  • Algae Control in Lakes and Reservoirs

    There are plenty of harmful algal bloom related cases worldwide but what is evident is that their number elevates with each year. Excessive cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and green algae growth in a water reservoir can have negative consequences for the water quality. The water turns green, sand filters can clog, and some algae can produce geosmins and MIB, giving the water an ...

  • Prevent biofouling and reduce fuel costs in sea chests, hulls and cooling basins

    Biofouling growth increases the drag on a hull which results in a ship that uses up to 40% more fuel and correspondingly produces 40% more CO2 emissions. The marine industry globally spends billions of dollars in addressing fouling, using a variety of protection methods such as coatings. LG Sonic, a Dutch algae and biofouling control solutions provider, has introduced an Industrial Line which ...

  • Are Lake Alum Application Strategies Set Up For Failure?

    Since 2012, we have been working with stakeholders at a high value 300-acre lake in the US. They have been considering putting in SolarBee® Lake Circulators to control toxic blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) blooms. So far however, they have opted to apply aluminum sulfate (alum) in an effort to tie up phosphorus at the sediment (thus preventing "internal loading” or recycling of ...

  • Ultrasonic algae control solutions to treat smaller water areas

    Algae has an import function in nature, it provides food and energy for animal life, and much of the earth’s oxygen. However, an excess of algae can be hazardous to both humans and animals. Research has demonstrated that ultrasound can be an effective method of controlling algal blooms. Ultrasonic algae control solutions: the differences There are various ...

  • Algal bloom causes and prevention

    Algal blooms are also known as marine blooms or water blooms, and are actually a sudden increase in the population of algae in water scenery. Algal blooms usually take place in freshwater, such as lakes and water reservoirs as well as in marine milieus. They can be easily identified by coloration of the water ensuing from the high density of pigmented cells. Though many types of algae can form ...

  • LG Sound integrates new technology to detect toxic algae blooms

    LG Sound introduces satellite remote sensing technology in order to detect toxic algae blooms. Satellite remote sensing allows for detection of water quality from a distance with information obtained from satellites. Together with several European universities we discovered that different types of algae require different types of ultrasonic treatment. Therefore, it is important to detect ...

  • Map algal blooms with satellite remote sensing technology

    The quality of water bodies is a key determinant in the usability of the resource for the purpose required. It is therefore of great importance to managers of hydrologic resources to be able to confidently tell the status of their water resource. One of the major problems in the quality of surface water bodies is the blooming of algae and blue green algae. Algal blooms can result in ecological, ...

  • Cyanobacteria successfully monitored and controlled by using ultrasound

    Cyanobacteria- also known as blue-green algae- cause problems when blooming in lakes, ponds and reservoirs. Mainly due to the production of toxins, cyanobacteria cause fish kill and the death of other aquatic animals. They also affect human beings, causing paralysis and skin irritation, and they are even thought to be related to the occurrence of liver cancer. In drinking water reservoirs, the ...
