Why Interactive Ultrasonic Programs are Important to Effectively Control Algae - LG Sonic

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  control algae with ultrasound , it is important to know that all these different algal sizes and shapes respond to differing optimal frequencies. Figure 1 illustrates a random group of algal cells, each with a different shape and size. To be controlled effectively, each of these algal types requires a different ultrasonic frequency. Hence, to effectively control algae and address seasonal changes in algal species, a frequency program should be specific and variable.
