Ultrasound Systems For Algae Growth Prevention on Vessels

Ultra

Ultrasound Solutions offers sonotrodes-transducer technology to prevent the growth of algae, mussels and sea pockets on vessels.

The company’s ultrasound-driven, low-capacity sonotrodes prevent biofilm from cultivating on chests, pipes, filters, pumps, box coolers and hulls.

Low-capacity ultrasound solutions for cleaning vessels

Since 2008, lower freight rates have forced ship management companies to prolong the operational life of vessels. Most antifouling solutions are built for sailing and not anchors. Depending on water temperature and salinity, hull and cooling systems can be overtaken by growth, resulting in docking issues and high repair costs.

Ultrasound Solution's systems prevent the growth of algae on marine vessels.
The growth of algae and biofilm can result in increased costs and docking problems.
Sonotrodes prevent biofilm from cultivating on surfaces and containers.
Ultrasound's solutions prevent fouling on power and fuel-related systems.
The Harsonic transducer distributes high-frequency ultrasound, which prevents the development of bacteria, rust and scale on ships.
Transducers can be installed on hulls to prevent the growth of algae, mussels and sea pockets.
Transducers are also installed on seachests and filters.
Ultrasound Systems provides cooling pipes to prevent fouling in pipelines.
Ultrasound Solutions provides service and installation strategies to customers.
The company installs electronic components on-board vessels.

Ultrasound Solutions’ systems have been developed to prevent fouling on fuel and power-related systems, as well as biofilm cultivation on hulls, cooling systems, and water and fuel tanks.

Ship ballast water management systems

For ballast water management, a new ultrasound reactor is currently under development and will be available until late 2017.

The system will be installed in vessel engine or pump rooms, offers a capacity up to 5,000m³, and fulfils International Maritime Organization (IMO) and US Coast Guard (USCG) regulations.

Ultrasound Solutions provides service and installation strategies to customers in order to determine the optimal location of its easy-to-install solution on-board vessels.
