Industrial Fabric Solutions is one of the world’s largest manufacturer and installers of geomembrane lining systems and has extensive experience supplying liners for aquaculture facilities.
As clean water becomes more expensive to acquire and the cost to pump water increases, the need for secure water containment grows. Efficient operation of any aquaculture facility requires consistent water volumes, high water quality and low operating costs. Additionally, the siting of aquaculture facilities like other food producing facilities, has become more difficult as concern continues to increase for clean surface water and groundwater resources. Installing an Industrial Fabric Solutions geomembrane is the solution. Industrial Fabric Solutions geomembranes not only have extremely low permeability rates to help keep pond water volume consistent, they also keep waste product contained and prevent the intrusion of groundwater borne pollutants from entering aquaculture ponds. Dissolved oxygen levels are easier to maintain because the extraneous biomass of the pond is greatly reduced by the geomembrane barrier.
Industrial Fabric Solutions Aquaculture Lining Systems:
- Ensure superior water quality
- Speed harvest and turnaround
- Reduce the risks of disease
- Offer the most durable containment at the most economical cost
- Reduce your operating costs
Water Quality Control
Industrial Fabric Solutions geomembranes are certified for drinking water containment. These high quality geomembrane liners contain no additives or chemicals which can leach out and impact water quality or harm animal life. Industrial Fabric Solutions geomembranes can be repeatedly cleaned and disinfected with no decrease in the
liner’s performance. The result is improved water quality allowing for higher and healthier crops due to greater dissolved oxygen levels and improved feed conversions. This produces better tasting product and improves profit potential.
Effective erosion control is another significant advantage of an Industrial Fabric Solutions lining system. The liner eliminates slope deterioration caused by surface rains, wave action and wind. By eliminating erosion, the liner prevents eroded materials from filling the pond and reducing the pond volume, thus maintaining the original pond
capacity. In addition, costly erosion repair and dredging are eliminated. Finally, an Industrial Fabric Solutions liner ensures complete harvests by maintaining a smooth pond bottom and by preventing muck and eroded areas where fish and shrimp can hide.
Disease and Microbiological Control
While diseases cannot be eliminated, lined ponds reduce their occurrence and assure rapid and more dependable recovery because the liner can be cleaned, disinfected and returned to service within days. Industrial Fabric Solutions geomembranes are resistant to microbiological attack and growth. The surface cleans easily and thoroughly. An Industrial Fabric Solutions geomembrane gives you better control over your operations and therefore reduces the risks of aquaculture rearing.
With more consistent, better quality water, your aquaculture product grows more quickly, is healthier and tastes better. An Industrial Fabric Solutions liner reduces sediment and results in a cleaner product. Your overall operation is more efficient and produces a better quality product.
