Ultrasonic Anti-Fouling Applications
The prevention of biofouling is key to the efficient and cost effective operation of marine vessels, the use of ENVSonic Ultrasonic MGPS is a highly effective prevention method for Sea Chests, Hulls and Submerged structures, raw water piping, box coolers and more. Learn more below.
Sea Chest, Box Cooler, Sea Strainer & Pipes
Prevent bio-fouling within cooling systems including box coolers, sea chests, sea strainers and raw seawater piping systems. Cooling is critical to the maintained servicability and integrity of every vessel.
Through the use of ENVSonic you can ensure that the cooling efficiency, capacity, flow rates can all be maintained and reduce costly system failures, damage and repairs caused by bio fouling related issues and blockages within your cooling systems.
Hull & submerged Structures
Hull bio-fouling is the single largest cause of increased consumption, emissions and environmental impact. This is caused by fouling growth and the resultant high hydrodynamic efficiency losses causing increased fuel consumption and longer trip durations.
As the growth continues, the efficiency of the hull drops further. Sending divers at port can help but causes further paint damage and increases the growth rate on the next interval.
Propellers and Shafts
Another major factor in fuel consumption and emissions is the loss of propeller efficiency due to marine bio fouling on the blades. Propeller efficiency is critical to the performance of the vessel.
