Biovision - Biofouling Monitoring

Real time biofouling monitor system

The Biovision Monitor provides operators with a clear understanding of the levels of biofouling growth, to monitor in real-time the effectiveness of your biofouling treatment. If your current treatment is not effective, it will immediately reveal the presence of biofouling organisms.

The Biovision Monitor can be installed at critical spots in the service water system, e.g. in front of the heat exchangers. The monitor is designed to create a range of water flows and turbulences along the fouling coupons which cover the flow range and turbulences normally occur within a water system. 

The Biovision Monitor detects a broad range of species (for example mussels, oysters, barnacles and hydroids) and provides the operator an early warning system to identify any risk of biofouling settlement. Detect new invasive species, and minimize the risk of operation shutdown.
