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 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.
