Multiple transducers on 1 object Shipsonic is preparing a project to protect floating windmills against marine fouling. That involves installing a large number of transducers. Our biggest system powers 8 transducers, and our heaviest transducers are 120 Watt. But for this application even that is not enough. We need something bigger. […]
Shipsonic™ has invested considerable resources in developing systems with a guaranteed, consistent effectiveness Correct ultrasonic frequency with sufficient energy Our transducers are 50, 100 or 120 Watts. Their frequencies range from 20 to 40 KHz. Each transducer type has its own response frequency. That is the frequency in which the transducer functions optimally. With optimal[…]
If need be, ultrasonic anti-fouling systems can be installed while the ship is moving in the high seas. It can be installed by the ship’s crew. No special tools or dry docking needed. No moving parts either, so hardly any wear and tear. Hence maintenance free. This makes the ultrasonic solution extremely cost efficient.[…]
Sea-chest installation One of our earlier bigger professional installations was on the HAM317, a trailing suction hopper dredger owned by Van Oord. We installed 4 transducers of 50 Watt each to protect the some sea-chests. In the videos we still show the old installation method, with threaded rings. […]
Skansi Skansi is a shipping company very keen on innovation and experimentation. Shipsonic has installed various systems for box cooler protection on 2 of their off-shore vessels, the Saeborg and the Sjoborg. First round of trials We started in 2016 installing a number of HDS (Heavy Duty) systems to protect the sea chests and -indirectly-[…]
Box-cooler protection Blokland-Shipsonic have installed their first ultrasonic anti-fouling system. The system is developed specifically for the protection of box-coolers. The installation was carried out by a Blokland engineer. The ship where it was installed is the Fides. The Fides is active in the Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp (ARA) region. It is a container vessel owned[…]
Big fouling problems The SL Nisr (Smit Lamnalco) operates in the Persian Gulf, known for its relative severe marine fouling. The LS Nisr is not equipped with a box cooler, but has 2 small inlet chambers, protected with a grate, that lead to 2 strainers which strain the seawater before reaching the plate coolers. […]
Ridas Yachts from Estonia is building a new 115 feet ketch, called Zaca. They will install a Shipsonic HDS40-100. This is a system with 4 transducers of 100 Watt each. The system will be used to protect the hull against fouling.
