Interactive frequencies

Unlike conventional systems that use a broad spectrum frequency, LG Sonic ultrasonic algae control adjusts the frequency based on the algal species. This prevents ultrasound resistance and improves effectiveness.

Data-driven

1024 daily data sets select the optimal frequency

No release of toxins

Uses low-power ultrasound that doesn’t break the cell

Safe for aquatic life

Researchers confirmed it safe for fish and plants

Large water bodies

Treat large water bodies with any level of depth

Restoring the aquatic ecosystem

Algae are a vital part of the water ecosystem. This is why LG Sonic ultrasound technology reduces algae growth up to 90%. The sound waves prevent an algal species to form a bloom. Making it a long-term solution for a healthy ecosystem.

How LG Sonic ultrasound works

Ultrasound is a proven ecological solution for algae growth. LG Sonic has perfected the effectiveness by integrating real-time data. Allowing to target specific algal species.

1. Create a sound barrier

LG Sonic ultrasound creates a sound barrier in the top layer of the water which affects the buoyancy of the algae.

This fixes the algae in the water column and prevents to absorb sunlight for photosynthesis.

2. Lack of light and nutrients

Due to a lack of sunlight and nutrients, the algae cells sink to the deeper and darker layers of the water column. Here they are not able to photosynthesise.

Therefore, algae are no longer capable of growing further.

3. 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 reservoir and are degraded by the bacteria present.

Data-driven water treatment

Ultrasound is only effective through the choice of adequate frequencies. Our experience of over 10 years has resulted in a database of optimal frequencies. Allowing us to control different types of algae effective.

Our database stores and analyses all data from our MPC-Buoy systems from all over the world. We’ve integrated it in our MPC-View water quality monitoring software.

Proven safe for fish and plants

Various universities (i.a. University of Portsmouth, UK; UNICT Catania, Italy; and BOKU, Austria) investigated effects of LG Sonic ultrasonic algae control technology on the aquatic life. The devices have been proven to be safe for fish, plants, and zooplankton.

Long-term success

First effects of treatment are visible within two to three weeks. LG Sonic ultrasound decreases algae levels year-over-year. If algae growth is not treated, they will continue to grow faster. Making the problem worse each year.

After one year of treatment the improved water clarity shows its impact on the ecosystem. Resulting in plant growth, increased oxygen and fish growth.
