Secures circulation inside lice skirts

Deep lice skirts are proven to be very effective in reducing the spread of lice and parasites, and in many cases will also protect against amoebas and algae in the surface layer.It is desirable for many fish farms to use sea lice skirts throughout the cycle, but lice skirts limit water exchange and reduce water quality and thus also oxygen content.

TurboLift, our newly developed and patented product, addresses these issues.  

Far more effective than aerating in open water bodies

Turbolift provides a more comprehensive and efficient replacement of water mass in the cage. Measurements and experience clearly display that Turbolift is more efficient and effective than an open diffuser.

Water is replaced 12-24 times /day
Dilutes and washes out the lice that
are in the cage
Oxygen content is increased
Aquatic environment is improved
Improves temperature in the cage

The bubbles reduce the density of the water, which allows it to be lifted and distributed to a greater extent at the surface before it is pressed down. Thus, water exchange occurs in the entire volume of the cage.

 «We tested the Turbo Lift 10 weeks ahead of harvest in August and see that the system delivered a lot of water to the skirt volume. Significantly higher oxygen values were measured in this cage compared to neighboring cages.

A diffuser, for example, in open water would essentially move the water horizontally and outwards. Turbolift has the ability to efficient move water from the deep, upwards and vertically. This provides better water exchange in the cage, with less interference and more energy efficient transportation of water. This more efficient transport of deep water allows ”Flushing” of the water volume within the cage.
