About ULTRASONIC ANTIFOULING
Microorganisms, such as snails, algae and others, grow in
Any object in contact with the water, such as rocks, anchor lines, and
the living work of a boat. paint application
anti-fouling is a temporary solution since it must be repainted every time
season. With the elimination of polluting products in paints,
Protection duration has been reduced. However, the paintings
they are self-polishing and contribute to water pollution. The
ultrasonic technique has managed to avoid scale and be more
Respectful towards the environment.
The Technical Solution
Our tests have shown that applying ultrasound to helmets
of vessels at specific frequencies, the problem is eliminated
of scale because microorganisms cannot
develop on a surface exposed to ultrasonic signals.
We use amplitudes of microns so as not to damage the boat or the fauna
marina. We have developed several models for different sizes of
boats, and we placed more transducers on larger surfaces.
