Immersion Tank Algaecide


Does anyone know of any suppliers of suitable chemicals for preventing Algae Growth in Immersion tanks?

The standard product was 'Echocide' but apparently following the takeover of Sonotech this has been discontinued without notice

This is causing problems for some of our customers.

Is there an alternative?

Thanks

Joe

Re: Immersion Tank Algaecide
Hi Joe,

I do lots of Immersion Testing and what we do here is changing our water weekly. We tried to some emulsifier and other product, but in our case, they do cause lots of bubbles. The parts we are inspecting are rotating in the tank and the probes moves on a track. Also, since the parts we are inspecting are for the Nuclear industry, we are reluctent to introduce any product that are not "Nuclear Approved". S ochanging the water on a weekly basis works for us. The water is changed on the last shift of the week and allowed to be filtered all weekend to remove the air in it. Our system has a swimming pool size filtering system.

I recently bought a chemical to kill alage in my backyard pond from a garden and pond supply store. The same sort of stuff should work in an ultrasonic tank. A Purchasing Department may react as ours has to buying Legos and beanbags to improvise radiographic fixtures, but it is usually possible to reason with Buyers.
