Clogging

[ what we do ]

  • CLOGGING CAN RESULT FROM MINERALS OR ORGANIC DEPOSITS

Clogging in drips and sprayers may occur as a result of mineral deposits (lime scale, iron and manganese deposits) or organic deposits (biofilms, algae). With Aqua-4D®, these no longer adhere to surfaces in contact with water, and existing deposits are gradually eliminated. Biofilm is permanently eliminated and further bacterial growth is reduced with a preventive and curative effect on biofilm formation in irrigation networks.

  • THE IDEAL SOLUTION WOULD BE SIMPLE, EFFICIENT AND SUSTAINABLE

Much easier to implement and install than other solutions, Aqua-4D® is ecological and completely safe. It is a solution without maintenance, no water waste, no risk and with negligible electrical consumption (possibility of powering by solar panels.)

Check out the sliders below to see how our system eliminates clogging.

Multiple Types of Clogging

[ how it works ]

Clogging may occur as a result of mineral deposits including iron and manganese, or organic deposits such as biofilm and algae. Aqua-4D® is effective regardless of the situation.


Aqua-4D® eliminates and stops bacterial growth with a preventive and curative effect on biofilm formation in irrigation networks. Since biofilm no longer adheres to surfaces in contact with water, clogging is no longer an issue, and existing deposits are gradually eliminated. As the biofilm is a reproduction medium for some bacteria, the removal of this biofilm matrix reduces bacterial presence in water.

Limescale

[ Operation Mode ]

OPERATION MODE ON LIMESCALE

The structure of the limestone is modified to remain in suspension in the water. It no longer settles and does not cause clogging, with existing deposits gradually eliminated.

Organic deposits

[ operation mode ]

OPERATION MODE ON BIOFILMS

Biofilm no longer sticks to surfaces in contact with water, meaning clogging is prevented and existing biofilm deposits efficiently removed.

OPERATION MODE ON ALGAE

The subtle signals of the Aqua-4D® system prevent the development of algae so that it no longer causes clogging.
