Installation video HDS40 on sea-chest HAM 317

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.              […]

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-[…]

Pilot boat Nisr (Kuwait) equipped with Shipsonic ultrasonic anti-fouling system

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.  […]

Ultrasonic signal tester

Transducer location 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 is an acoustical problem. And acoustical problems are notoriously complex. Finding the solution is[…]

Shipsonic installs another heavy duty anti-fouling system on a SmitLamnalco vessel

                The vessel Shipsonic just finished the hand-over of another heavy duty ultrasonic anti-fouling system for use on a SmitLamnalco vessel. This time it concerns the tug Madagascar, operating in the Persian Gulf, and based in the United Arab Emirates. The system The system installed is a HDS80,[…]

Research program with the University of Applied Sciences Vlissingen and the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research

Preparing the research set up at the NIOZ premises Research partners The University of Applied Sciences Vlissingen, the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research and Shipsonic have won a research grant. This research grant is made available by the Dutch Taskforce for Applied Research (SIA KIEM). This is a governmental program to support innovation through[…]

Waterproof transducer with stainless steel installation bracket

Waterproof transducers inside the sea chest

Conventional installation Normally, transducers are dry-mounted on the inside of the vessel on the sea-chest to avoid fouling. To protect box-coolers, transducers are installed on top, that is on the water-covers of the box-cooler, and around it on the sea-chest walls. Objective is to protect the pipe bundle of the box-cooler. Installing on the water-cover[…]
