Besides advising our clients on their water quality, our biologists spend their time performing practical laboratory and literature studies to expand their knowledge about algae and their related problems. In this manner our clients can be certain to get the best scientific feedback for their water reservoir.

LG Sound cares about quality.

LG Sound makes sure that the devices reach our clients in perfect condition! Before a device leaves the company to one of our clients, it goes through several quality controls to make sure that the devices have no technical or designing flaws, nor any other imperfections. LG Sound offers her customers a two-year guarantee on all products.

our electrical box. Our LG Sonic

Ttransducer emits sound waves through

the water in a radius of nearly 180°. Algae, within the range of the transducer, will start oscillating at the frequencies of the sound waves. When brought in resonance an algal cell will not be able to sustain some compartments within the cell, these effected compartments can damage or even rupture, causing severe stress to the algal cell. The exact reaction of an algal cell to ultrasound depends on the type of algae. A very common differentiation between algae is between green algae and blue-green algae, also known as cyanobacteria.

Benefits:

The formation of algae, biofilm and the occurrence of high bacterial concentrations are a concern for the treatment of a cooling tower. Algae grow in the cooling tower itself and on the grids. In addition to micro-organisms and biofilm, they reduce the efficiency of the cooling tower. Furthermore, the risk of spreading Legionella is a serious factor to be reckoned with. Besides reducing algal growth

Wastewater is any water that has suffered in quality by human intervention. Often, wastewater is treated for re-use as drinking water or for other purposes. As high levels of nutrition are available in these waters, algae can grow to high concentrations. Also the growth of other micro-organisms such as bacteria can increase drastically. Besides

fighting the algae, the LG Sonic

provides an additional method for the

reduction of Nitrates, sulphates, phosphates and many other components. Due to the reductions of these components, the

Aquaculture, or aqua farming, is the cultivation of aquatic
organisms, such as fish or shrimps, in a controlled
environment. When this happens in a closed water
container, algae may occur that pollute the water and
damage the organisms grown. By inhibiting algal growth,
the LG Sonic

quality in fish ponds which makes it possible to reach a
higher biomass of the fish.

Swimming pools

A swimming pool should be clear and look fresh. Algae colour the water green and can become a health risk to its owner because of the toxin production of some blue-green algae. The usage of chlorine in a swimming pool removes the algae but has its own health risks.

Ponds, whether man-made or all natural, are characterized by stagnant water. Where water doesn't move, algae may occur.
