Measuring signal strength of different transducers locations on a box-cooler

The effectiveness of ultrasonic anti-fouling

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[…]

Getting access to the sea-chest is complicated and costly

Cost efficiency of ultrasonic anti-fouling systems (UAFS)

  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.[…]

Fourth round of testing on OSV Sjoborg

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-[…]

First Blokland-Shipsonic box-cooler ultrasonic anti-fouling test system installed

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[…]

Prototype of the ultrasonic signal strength tester we use to optimize transducer location

Ultrasonic signal tester

Measuring sound pressure; the Shipsonic ultrasonic signal tester                 At delta-sistems we feel we have dealt with all the technical challenges in making a reliable, high powered ultrasonic system. One challenge remains, however. This is: where exactly to install the transducers on the object that needs protection? This[…]

Ultrasonic anti-fouling system installed on box-coolers of MV Saffier (deBockMaritiem)

              Client installation The Saffier was equipped with  an HDS40-100. That is 4 x 100 Watt transducers. Maintenance staff made use of regular maintenance -and cleaning- of the box coolers to install the ultrasonic anti-fouling system. Clean start After all, an ultrasonic anti-fouling system requires that the box coolers[…]

Blokland Non Ferro joins Shipsonic research program

Blokland is, worldwide, a major player in maritime cooling technology. Challenge For this project, they will make[…]

7 transducers for box-coolers of FWN Solide

On top of the box-cooler   The Solide was one of our first installations with the transducers directly installed on top of the box-coolers. The transducers are glued on the water covers. Each auxiliary box cooler was equipped with 1 transducer, each main box-cooler was fitted with 2 transducers. Together 7 transducers were installed, on[…]
