A major problem of water systems, both natural and artificial, is the named as “algae bloom.” These mats formed by microscopic algae are common in lentic waters, and often cause extensive damage to the operation of these systems. To solve this problem, Cimera presents an innovative ultrasonic technology, which kills these algae and also improves the water quality parameters.
The ultrasonic technology is an electronic device that converts electrical energy into specific sound waves that propagate through water by the transducer.
The ultrasonic technology controls algae without the use of chemicals and other products. These waves in water produce resonance in planktonic cells and filamentous algae, even they attack the biofilm attached to the surfaces in contact with water. In addition, the frequencies emitted by the ultrasounds are harmless to fish, amphibians, plants, humans, etc.
The ultrasound is a technique compatible with other techniques related to the control of algae, such as the case of Phoslock®. To know more about this technology, click here.
