Ultrasonic Antifouling Ltd, one of the market leaders and pioneers of the original hull and sea chest clearing technology in electronic antifouling, showcased their brand new product - the UltraSystem PowerPlus, at the recent 2015 Southampton Boat Show.
The PowerPlus, which is the latest development in the company’s ‘Ultra’ series, is the result of three years of research, development and comprehensive testing and is twice as powerful as the Series II, which has been the company’s flagship product for the past five years. The new product has been specifically designed with larger yachts and superyachts in mind.
The PowerPlus combines the company’s software with their digital control program (ADCP) to deliver a higher concentration of ultrasound. According to Ultrasonic Antifouling, this prevents bio-fouling on hulls and sea chests, increasing performance whilst at the same time monitoring temperature, voltage and output loads. PowerPlus uses a range of key frequencies between 20 and 140 KHz, which is unique to the UltraSystem, and utilises high quality 50w multi-frequency mounted piezoelectric crystal transducers.
Nick Griffin, managing director at Ultrasonic Antifouling commented, “We’re delighted to be using the 2015 SBS to launch the UltraSystem PowerPlus, a revolution in the field of ultrasonic antifouling. The product represents a significant advancement in this technology and takes ultrasonic antifouling to whole new level as it can deliver output to three and four transducers simultaneously, something no other product in this field can do.
“The PowerPlus is generating a massive amount of interest and we’re excited to reveal that it has been selected by the country’s largest luxury boat builder to protect the sea chest of its flagship yacht.”
Since Ultrasonic Antifouling Ltd first introduced ultrasonic antifouling technology to the boating market in 2007, it has developed into what they say is the most effective way to maintain hull performance, save fuel and increase the time yachts can spend in the water.
The technology works by emitting a unique range of specific and scientifically researched, low powered, pulsed ultrasonic frequencies via transducers that are installed on the inside of the hull or onto the sea chest pipes, filters and manifolds.
