Ultrasonic Antifouling Limited are the pioneers of this electronic antifouling technology and the company that first introduced it to the boating market in 2007.
Alternative antifouling for yachts and superyachtsThis state-of-the-art system uses low frequency, low power sound waves to destroy algae and bio-films and therefore prevent weed and barnacle growth.
Ultrasonic Antifouling Ltd has now introduced its new UltraSystem PowerPlus control unit taking ultrasonic antifouling protection for superyachts to a whole new level.
They are the world leader in ultrasonic antifouling technology for the prevention of underwater fouling and are able to offer a solution, which is both environmentally friendly and very cost effective.
Benefits of using the UltraSystem
Sea Chests fouling- Maintain water flow to essential on-board systems
- Reduce maintenance and cleaning
- Save on the use of expensive, corrosive and harmful dosing chemicals
Hull fouling- Maintain hull speed and reduce passage times
- Reduces fuel consumption by up to 30% - a massive saving in fuel bills
- Reduce the frequency of dry docking and paint application
- Easy installation and a high level of protection against fouling
A recent report by the British Navy states "that it can take up to 30% more fuel to push a dirty hull through the water".
The UltraSystem is in successful use on many yachts worldwide. Suitable for both sailing yachts and motoryachts.
How does ultrasonic antifouling work?The control box sends a variety of pulsed ultrasonic signals to the transducer, which in turn emits a series of low power, low frequency sound waves which are virtually inaudible to the human ear. The resonance within the hull and sea chest system creates a wall of moving water molecules over the entire submerged area of the hull or the inner surfaces of the sea chest components. The micro - environment which exists as a result, destroys algae, bio-films and barnacles so they don't attach themselves.
Their new PowerPlus system provides twice the output level compared to Series II providing the highest level of protection for superyachts on the market today.
The UltraSystem utilises proven, world leading technology to provide the best protection for yachts. Ultrasonic Antifouling Ltd are highly knowledgeable experts and market leaders in this field.
