AN INTEGRATED, EFFECTIVE AND ECOLOGICAL SOLUTION TO COMBAT THE ZEBRA MUSSEL

Simple methods that ensure optimal results from a cost/efficacy point of view and with minimal environmental impact, as noted in the Control Manual for Affected Installations, published by the Environment Ministry and the CHE. We adapt our technology to each installation. OX's products and technical applications customised to meet the specific needs of each installation and ensure the efficacy of the treatment.

ACTION PLAN

1. Eradication: A reactive treatment whose aim is to kill and clear adult Zebra mussels from the installation using a combination of technology and specific products, paying special attention to the points affected.
2. Prevention: Elimination and/or non-proliferation of the Zebra mussel larvae that can penetrate the installation, thereby preventing their growth and subsequent adhesion to the system.
3. Control: A knowledge of the state of the installation at all times in order to adopt the most appropriate reactive or preventive measures.



SMC-OX CONTINUAL MONITORING SYSTEM

SMC-OX is a continual monitoring system patented by OX-CTA that allows the direct and 'in situ' monitoring of the state of a hydraulic installation as regards possible infestation with Zebra mussel.

It allows 100% representative samples to be obtained for subsequent laboratory analysis, thereby confirming the presence or absence of larvae and allowing them to be quantified in the event of a positive result.

It acts as a permanent probe for detecting Zebra mussel larvae inside the system. Analysis of the data obtained after SMC-OX sampling gives a general overview of the internal state of the installation at all times, thus allowing treatment to be initiated at the most convenient time, and in the most convenient manner, for each installation.
