The Quattro – DB ultrasonic algae and biofilm control system

The Quattro – DB ultrasonic algae and biofilm control system is a new addition to the UK market. It uses 4 surface emitters to produce 360 degree coverage of the water body. This means that one unit can control up to 17 acres of water with green algae and diatoms. If the problem is blue green algae, then this unit will give a coverage area of up to 120 acres. 

The Quattro-DB ultrasonic algae control system gives an ecologically safe and efficient way to control algae and biofilm growth.

Applications for the Quattro-DB:

  • Lakes and reservoir
  • Waste water treatment lagoons, as well as leachate storage lagoons
  • Irrigation basins
  • Clarifiers and sedimentation basins
  • UV chambers
  • Distribution water tanks
  • Ponds and pools
  • Freshwater and marine aquaculture (to reduce off-flavour)


Powered by:

  • Solar powering options are available (eg. land or floating pontoon based systems).
  • Power supply systems available as 240vAC (50 or 60 Hz compatible) or 24 vDC.
  • Each power supply can support up to two ultrasonic units, thereby reducing initial outlay.



  • 1000+ distinct frequencies span multiple bandwidths.
  • Energy efficient and low cost use (peak wattage of 50 w).
  • Cable lengths of up to 300 metres are available.
  • Single unit coverage: green algae and diatoms to an area of up to 17 acres and blue green algae (cyanobacteria) of up to 120 acres.
  • The system comes with a float and marker flag, therefore it is less prone to damage by use
  • The Quattro – DB uses compensating circuitry to make up for any voltage drop experienced in the cable run.
  • The 360 degree coverage allows the unit to be secured in place with a simple weight anchor. This can help to reduce user damage by increasing the visibility of the unit.

General Information

The Quattro-DB unit comes with a 5 meter cable between the power supply to the transducer unit as standard, although cables can be purchased in lengths to suit the end user’s requirement in lengths of up to 300 meters.

Please note that all ultrasonic units work on a “line of sight” basis and therefore cannot control algae that is shaded from the signal.


Help and advice

Contact us if you need help with working out how many units your system would need and where to site them. We can design a layout for you using google earth and other mapping packages. We can also advise you on how best to use the systems and supply a suggested layout plan as a free service.


To use this service please email site postcode, a description of the waterbody (line of sight issues, use, aquatic plant stands, water input and output, contact details etc) via our contact form.

As the cables connecting the power supply to the transducer are available in various lengths. Please contact us for prices.
