  • 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 ...

  • Environmental Industrial Water & Algae Control in lagoons and ponds.

    Proven site trails and report shows a excellent reduction/removal of Microcystis and filamentous algae where we proved excellent results with ASMP-1000.A systems These ponds are characterised by large open lagoons with a fairly high residence time of water and UV exposure in the summer months. During the holding period in the open reservoirs, filamentous algae start growing ...

  • Algae control in drinking water treatment - case study

    For the Ministry of Agriculture in Cyprus, LG Sound b.v installed 33 LG Sonic, ultrasonic devices in the Limassol water treatment plant, to prevent bad odour and taste to the water caused by geosmins in the water. The earthy taste problem persisted during summer of 2010 and various physical, chemical and biological tests were done in order to check the process efficiency, which showed problems ...

  • Why Interactive Ultrasonic Programs are Important to Effectively Control Algae

    Many different algal types can bloom in a water body. Some of these algae are plant cells, while others are bacteria. Algae may vary in size, shape and cell characteristics. Typically, the type of algae that blooms depends on water temperature and sun hours. As a result, algal types may change several times during a season. To effectively  ...
