Why use Ultrasonic technology?
Ultrasonic is new age technology designed specifically to control algae.
Ultrasonic uses soundwave technology to suppress existing algae and prevent new algal growth.
- Eliminate up to 90% of existing algae and prevent new algae
- Chemical-free solution that is safe for fish and other aquatic life
- Treat large water surfaces, such as lakes and reservoirs
- Requires little maintenance to prevent frequent site visits
How does Ultrasonic work?
- Create a sound barrier
Blue-green algae and some green algae can travel through the water vertically due to their possession of gas vesicles. The ultrasonic sound waves create an ultrasonic pressure in the top layer of the water, decreasing the algae’s mobility.
- Lack of light
This ultrasonic sound barrier prevents the algae from rising to the surface and accessing light for photosynthesis. Therefore, algae are no longer capable of further growth.
- Control algae growth
The algae will die while the cell wall remains intact, preventing the release of toxins from the algae into the water. The algae will sink to the bottom of the water body and are degraded by the beneficial bacteria present.
Algae in irrigation water
Almost 60% of all the world’s freshwater withdrawals go towards irrigation uses where landholders use water basins and farm dams to irrigate their crops. Irrigation water is vulnerable to blue-green algal blooms- particularly during peak summer months. Because of an algal bloom, the water source may become contaminated. It is recommended to avoid the use of contaminated water since it can have a negative impact on humans’ health.
You can house up to 2 transmitters in one single electronic control box. Each of these transmitters can be programmed via the same e-box and can work separate algae control programs, letting you target all algal types via a single device.
Each transmitter has a range of up to 200m, giving you expanse coverage.
Available in 240v and Solar Power
For best results, Ultrasonic requires a residence time of 6 weeks or longer.
