Investigation of zebra mussel adhesion strength using rotating disks

, : Investigation of zebra mussel adhesion strength using rotating disks. Journal of Environmental Engineering New York 118(5): 708-724

Zebra mussels adhere tenaciously and gregariously to hard surfaces, thereby fouling water-processing facilities and equipment. At present, there are few data on zebra mussel adhesion strength to common substrates. A rotating disk test system (RDTS) was used to measure the adhesion strength of small mussels (~ 1 mm) to 4 materials: polyvinylchloride (PVC), polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), stainless steel (SS) and aluminium (AL).

Artificial fumigation of spruce raw humus (Of subhorizon) with 1 mg SO2/msuperscript 3 for 63 and 191 d in chambers showed damage, not caused by acidity, to microorganisms; the only exceptions were S-oxidizers. In the field, however, raw humus whi...
