“A copper dose of 30ppb at approximately 30 deg. Celsius resulted in similar percent survival in copper treated water relative to controls for both the EarthTec and Fortress Systems with approximately 30 to 40 percent fewer mussels surviving after ten days of exposure in the bioboxes exposed to copper”
Fortress Mussel Control Systems are engineered with industrial-grade electrolysis processes to generate ionized solution using only water and electricity. The ionized solution is injected at the entrance of your water intake resulting in an ultra low dose of ions, as low as 5-10ppb in your treated raw water. Fortress Mussel Control Systems’ ions interfere with growth and development of mussels at all life stages; larvae, veligers, juvenile and adults. Fortress Mussel Control Systems’ ions create inhospitable conditions prohibiting growth and settlement of Zebra/Quagga mussels and clams throughout your intake and raw water piping system.
