Principal of operation :

  1. Wide hood is used to suck surface layer of algae with low velocity to ensure laminar flow, its width is optional according to loading boat . The hood is provided with sub cushion to keep its level always at water surface .

  2. Hood mechanism is used to carry hood body and it is supported with adjustable spring for fine adjustment.

  3. Flexible hose is used to connect hood outlet to water pump inlet .
