Highly Effective at Ultra Low Doses

Fortress Mussel Control Systems protect your raw water by introducing extremely low level of ions, as low as 5 – 10ppb; well below EPA’s national drinking water standard MCL of 1300ppb (1.3mg/L).

Compatible with Your Existing Treatment Train

Pretreating by injecting chemicals in raw water can be detrimental to your downstream processes. Chlorinated compounds, chlorine dioxide or amines in raw water can generate disinfection by products and negatively impact pre-oxidation process such as Ozonation and degas/destruction systems. It has been proven, ions injected in your raw water by Fortress Mussel Control Systems are easily removed by conventional treatment stages of flocculation, sedimentation and filtration, and without the need to modify your treatment train.

Preserves Quality of Your Drinking Water

Chlorinated compounds, amines, and permanganate in raw water can negatively impact your water quality parameters such as odor, taste and color.  Fortress Mussel Control Systems’ ions in raw water will not pass through to finished water and thus have no adverse impact on your finished water quality.

Easier and Safer to Operate than Liquid Chemicals

Liquid chemicals are corrosive, present risk of chemical spills and exposure and therefore necessitates special handling, storage and mixing.  Fortress Mussel Control Systems are simple and straight forward to operate because no liquid chemicals are involved.  The only utilities required are already present; water and electricity.

The Most Cost Effective Long-Term Solution

Fortress Mussel Control Systems are the most reliable, cost effective, long term solution for controlling Zebra mussels, Quagga mussels and Asiatic clams. Compared to alternatives, Fortress Mussel Control Systems offer the lowest acquisition, installation, operation and maintenance cost.

Enhances Control of Algae

Fortress Mussel Control Systems compliment your water treatment process, ions injected in the raw water enhances control of algae, microbial induced corrosion, and organic matter in downstream treatment stages.

Hassle-Free Protection against Mussels

Water treated by Fortress Mussel Control Systems do not require detoxification.  Simply put; No Liquid Chemicals, No Hassles, No Detox.

Easy Integration and Small Footprint

Fortress Mussel Control Systems have a small footprint allowing for easy, fast and simplified installation in pump houses with limited space; the only utilities needed are water and power.

Control Mussels at All Crucial Stages

Fortress Mussel Control Systems’ ultra low levels of ions are an effective molluscicide and control mussels at all crucial life growth stages; larvae, veligers, juvenile and adults.

Lower Your Plant Operations Costs

Fortress Mussel Control Systems enhance control of algae, microbial induced corrosion and organic matter helping to keep your heat exchangers cleaner, lowering your energy and operations costs while boosting your productivity.

No Corrosion Problems

Chemicals introduced in raw water promote corrosion of piping and heat transfer equipment.  Fortress Mussel Control Systems’ treatment process is non-corrosive and enhances protection of your equipment from microbial induced corrosion.

No Need to Detox Your Discharge

Simply put, Fortress Mussel Control Systems’ treatment process does not require any costly and regulatory burdensome detoxification of discharge water.

Control Mussels at All Crucial Stages

Fortress Mussel Control Systems’ ultra low level of ions is an effective molluscicide and control mussels at all crucial life growth stages; larvae, veligers, juvenile and adults.

Highly Effective at Ultra Low Dose

Fortress Mussel Control System protects your raw water by introducing extremely low levels of ions, as low as 5 – 10ppb, well below EPA’s MCL of 1300ppb.

Eliminate Hassles of Dealing with Liquid Chemicals

Chemical treatment require construction of spill containment area, emergency eyewash and safety shower, special handling, storage and metering systems among others, and are subject to corrosion and frequent failure.  Fortress Mussel Control Systems produce a non-corrosive, ion solution for direct injection in to raw water. No metering pumps, No special piping, No mixing tanks, No hassles.

Simple to Operate and Lowest O&M Costs

Fortress Mussel Control Systems’ treatment process is fully automated greatly simplifying operations. The only utilities required are readily available; water and electricity.

Will Not Disrupt Your Plant Operations

Intermittent use of chemicals require plant shut-downs to administer and monitor chemical dosing therefore requiring intensive planning and time consuming coordination well ahead of time. On the contrary, Fortress Mussel Control Systems operate with no disruption to your plants operations.

Small-foot Print and Easy Integration

Fortress Mussel Control systems have substantially small foot-print for easy installation and integration in mechanical rooms with limited space.

Continuous Protection Equals Unparalleled Reliability

Chemical injection provide intermittent protection; between treatment when conditions are right mussel population will explode easily slowing or shutting down your plant operations.  Fortress Mussel Control Systems give you unparalleled reliability by continuously protecting your raw water system, so you can focus more on your revenue generating plant operations.

Improve Heat Transfer Efficiency

Fortress Mussel Control Systems enhance control of algae, microbial induced corrosion and organic matter helping to keep your heat transfer surfaces cleaner.

Eliminate Chemical Induced Corrosion

Fortress Mussel Control Systems do not require the use of any liquid chemicals that promote corrosion of piping and components.

No Need to Detox Your Discharge

Fortress Mussel Control Systems’ treatment process does not require any costly regulatory burdensome detoxification of discharge water.

Control Mussels at All Crucial Stages
