The fine bubble breakthrough a new technological era is dawning

In Blog by Erik van Berkum Published: Monday, 28 November 2016

Imagine your kitchen floor or bathroom tiles being cleaned by very tiny bubbles. Or imagine round-the-clock restrooms staying clean and functional. Sounds great, but how is it possible and is it too good to be true? Not anymore, a new technological era is dawning.

Washing with soap and water may soon be a thing of the past thanks to an incredible new technology that creates water containing ultra-fine bubbles (smaller than the wavelength of light) – a scientific feat heralded as the next technological breakthrough.

Ultrafine Bubbles and the effect on Seed Germination

Nano Bubbles are useful in accelerating the metabolism of living organisms, but the mechanism is not yet well understood. In a study, they investigated the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by Nano Bubbles and the effect on seed germination. The conclusion of the study was seeds in nano bubble water had a higher germination rate than all those submerged in the different other conventional used solutions.

Project report water treatment lake gaiaGaLF nano bubbles

A contaminated pond which was used for irrigation was treated for 40 days with nano bubbles. After treatment the algae contamination problems was solved. For the treatment the gaiaGaLF nano bubble generator was used, in combination with an connected oxygen concentrator.

Demonstration gaiaGaLF submersible unit

The gaiaGaLF submersible unit is a, complete unit with the low-pressure mixing valve technique that effectively and efficiently saturates liquids with gases over 5 times the levels of conventional technologies. The unit moves 113 liters of water per minute and dissolves 4 liters of oxygen per minute creating a high DO content and ultrafine bubbles in the water.

Strong increase in cannabis production with bubble Oxygenation

Root systems require oxygen for aerobic respiration. Reduced levels of oxygen in the rootzone, slow down plant growth and increase susceptibility of diseases. Indoor grown plants in closed water systems have often a lack of oxygen and need additional oxygen supply. By delivering ultrafine bubble to the rootzone of the plant, you increase the levels of oxygen and the water get negatively electrically charged this promotes nutrient uptake and hair root growth. Read the whole article to see what experience cannabis growers have to say about the ultrafine bubble system.

Lab demonstration miniGaLF

The miniGaLF is ACNITI`s entry level GaLF model designed for companies, universities, research institutes and individuals that want to learn about Ultrafine bubble technology. In this blog a movie is shown of the connections and the performance to create ultrafine bubble (nano bubbles) with high DO water.

Cultivate attractive lettuce with no more tipburn

Manoa lettuce is a lettuce variety susceptible to tipburn. Tipburn is the drying and dying of leaf tissue along the edges of the leaf. During a test at a grower in Hawaii it was shown that by increasing the DO levels and adding ultrafine bubbles, reduction of tipburn is realized and quality and production improvements are made.

What's in the name: ultrafine bubbles or nano bubbles?

Interested to know why nanobubbles are officially called ultrafine bubbles? In this article we explain the reasons why the ISO technical committee has decided to use the official name ultrafine bubbles instead of nanobubbles.

Laundry clean with a bubble boost

Washing of surfaces and laundry is one of the promising areas were ultrafine bubbles can make a difference in the application. Reducing the amount of detergent, has a positive effect by reducing pollution, washing laundry without detergent, would greatly benefit the environment. Ultrafine bubbles can lower the surface tension of water, the large amounts of oxygen molecules in bubbles charge the water negative.

Ozone bubbles for water treatment

Research into ozone ultrafine bubble technology for the treatment of captured produce wash water. The white paper shows that their are benefits in using the technology, by better disinfection and savings in ozone can be obtained.

Bubble sizes and properties

Bubbles are gas filled cavities in water. The contact area between bubbles in water filled with tiny bubbles is much larger than water filled with bigger bubbles. The gas pressure inside a small bubble is higher than in a large bubble, therefore the surface tension of a small bubble is higher as well.

ISO fine bubbles

Great things happen when the world agrees, fine bubbles are an innovative technology, but without proper standards for the industry development, there are obstacles. From 2013 ISO started the creation of an International Standard for fine bubbles popularly know as nano bubbles.

gaiaGaLF lake Ida Anne

Lake Ida Anne has a growing problem with algae in spring and summer. A large number of nutrients are available in the lake, and this promotes algae growth. The city of Langford tested the Gaia Oxygenation System to combat the algae, with great success.

Smart people talk bubbles, the water innovation

Bubbles are all around us, in our foods, beer, pop drinks bread and cheese, but also in the bricks of our house. Bubbles are gas-filled cavities in water, the lifetime of a bubble is short at most a few minutes, only ultra-fine bubbles are stable for longer periods like months, that is making them very special and that enables us to change the properties of water.
