Design and Delivery of Anti-Fouling Systems for Ships
Fouling is the undesired growth of microorganisms such as bacterial slimes, algae, mussels, barnacles within water systems, including heat exchangers, condensers, cooling towers, piping, filters and storage tanks.
High temperatures and continuous supply of nutrition at water inlets result in a rapid accession of fouling. The fouling contaminates the water system resulting in reduced heat transfer in heat exchangers or condensers, as well as increased pressure drop in pipelines leading to a higher pump load among others.
