The Biofoul Screen is designed to let water freely flow through to the pressure and conductivity sensors.
During extended deployments, especially in saltwater environments, there is the risk that Leveloggers will encounter biofouling on the pressure and conductivity sensors.
The new Biofoul Screen is designed to fit onto the sensor end of any Levelogger model. The natural anti-fouling characteristics of copper protects the sensors from build-up of unwanted microorganisms, plants, algae, or organisms such as barnacles or mussels, which could affect the reliability of the sensor readings.
The Biofoul Screen is an affordable option, reducing the need for maintenance, and lengthening the time that a Levelogger can be deployed. It improves the long-term performance of the Leveloggers and ensures reliable water level and conductivity measurements.
