Control Equipment Company is named Exclusive Dealer for HYDRO BIOSCIENCE (HBS) in Virginia and West Virginia.
HBS manufactures Intelligent Water Quality Monitoring and Ultrasonic Algae Control Systems.
HBS is a US based research, engineering, and manufacturing company dedicated to chemical free, algae and biofilm remediation technologies and products which expand the water management professional’s toolbox. They supply effective alternatives for algae, biofilm, and biofouling remediation and eco-friendly, remote water quality monitoring tools.
Algae Management – How HBS Helps
HBS’s patented, CHEMICAL-FREE algae management systems are safe for humans and animals. The transducer heads introduce over 2000 varying frequencies into the environment at power levels far below depth finders, or other ultrasound technology. Frequencies are introduced in a linear pattern across the water, covering up to 120 surface area acres. Different frequencies affect different types of algae. This ensures algae cannot rise to the surface, restricting access to photosynthesis processes, causing the organism to expire.
The defeated algae, along with any toxins they contain, are consumed by fish and naturally occurring bacteria, transforming them into inert byproducts. Our eco-friendly algae management systems quickly eradicate algae with visible results in as little as 2 weeks and continued operation keeps future blooms at bay. The frequencies introduced will also greatly reduce biofilm by mimicking the movement of water, resulting in a noticeable decrease of biofouling agents, such as barnacles and mussels.
Water Quality Monitoring
Water quality testing and monitoring has historically been expensive and time consuming, often requiring outside institutions to gather samples, send to labs, and deliver reports on issues which may have dramatically changed since the samples were taken. Further, a fast-changing water environment requires a monitoring system that can deliver accurate, instant reporting.
That’s where HBS comes in, putting the “IQ” in Intelligent Water Quality Monitoring™
In 2019 HBS tasked their engineers to develop an advanced water quality monitoring system for remote locations. With algae management and general water management strategies being dependent on constant water quality data, HBS experience has proven that the necessity of such an applicable and affordable system is invaluable to the water management professional. HBS’s requirements included:
- A completely solar powered operating system
- Ease of communication through wireless and cellular communications
- A robust platform to schedule and monitor delivery of water quality data
- A highly developed sensor system with a wide range of data sensor options
- Excellent visibility and buoyancy, even in the roughest of conditions
- Lightweight for ease of shipping, transport, and implementation
- Cost effective, high quality manufacturing
The Results –
The result of the cooperative effort between Diversified Power International, LLC ,HBS’s sister company, and their engineers, is the Solaraft™ product line. Intelligent, remote water quality monitoring systems that meet all requirements demanded. Incorporating a completely proprietary, In-House buoy design, the industry leading water sensor sonde, diverse telemetry options, and industry leading technology in solar energy collection, management, and storage, the SolaRaft™ delivers uncompromising functionality at a cost that is significantly below competitor options.
Additionally, both the SolaRaft-iQM™ and the larger SolaRaft-iQDB™, monitoring combined with ultrasonic algae management systems, can be shipped via common carrier with no expensive freight charges. Each can be easily set up for deployment in a matter of MINUTES, not hours, with NO TOOLS required!
