Ultrasonic algae remover

Due to pollution and eutrophication, coastal waters are gradually deteriorating, adversely affecting the functioning of ecosystems and biodiversity. This is the use of ultrasound to remove seaweed. The shock wave generated by the "cavitation" effect produced by the ultrasonic wave on the liquid breaks the algae cell wall, breaks the air cells, destroys the active enzymes, inactivates and dies, and thus achieves the purpose of preventing algae and removing algae.
