The physical removal of free floating Azolla and Duckweed has several advantages particularly when infestations are advanced. Partial physical removal increases the effectiveness of spray applications, such as Free Floating Weed Control by reducing the amount of spray being applied and speed up the overall treatment process. Partial physical removal or bulk physical removal takes out the nutrient loading held within the Azolla or Duckweed.
The Azolla Skimmer is specifically designed to make the job of physically removing Azolla and Duckweed quick and easy. Safe and simple to use, the skimmer reduces the H&S risks with its easy action to capture floating weeds and remove it from the water. Each sweep captures a path using a tailored screen mesh and as the skimmer is removed from the water it closes and traps the catch, for easy disposal onto the shoreline or into a wheelbarrow or trailer. The Industrial skimmer clears a path of 1.52m wide with every sweep and is ideal for larger water bodies or to clear smaller water bodies more quickly.
