Algae Management and Odor Control
Maintaining adequate dissolved oxygen (DO) levels in water is a critical component to sustaining healthy ecosystems in lakes and ponds. Low DO levels and the presence of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus can lead to algae blooms in the epilimnion that further deplete DO concentrations and degrade water quality. Sustaining DO levels across the entire water column, including the hypolimnion, helps mitigate algae growth by reducing the rate of nutrient recycling into the water from the sediment layer. However, effectively aerating the entire water column with conventional aeration systems poses difficulties, as oxygen transfer is poor in warm and shallow water bodies, while distribution of oxygen to the hypolimnion layer is challenging in deep water applications. Harnessing the power of nanobubbles, Moleaer has proven that it can cost-effectively reduce and prevent harmful and unsightly algae blooms by effectively aerating the entire water column independent of depth or temperature.
