Shipsonic™ has different transducer models (water resistant and waterproof) with different mounting methods (eg on curved surfaces such as piping) and different Wattages.
Optimized transducer housing
We intentionally chose a PVC housing, while this is not common in shipping. However, metal housings have too much mass compared to the mass of the transducer itself. These housings, therefore, absorb more energy, sometimes resulting in the housing cracking up. The mass of the metal housing also affects the resonant frequency of the transducer. The PVC housing of the transducer is not a way of cost-saving, but a conscious technical design choice. Within the PVC housing, the resonance element of the transducer can vibrate completely independent. With the water resistant model, the contact surface of the transducer is glued directly to the object to be protected, so no intermediate steel or artificial part of the housing gets in the way.
All Shipsonic transducer models can be obtained as either:
- 100 Watt 28kHz (standard)
- 50 Watt 40 kHz.
Standard model PVC transducer can also be installed using an adaptor. This adapter can be customized and made-to-fit. For example, when installing on curved surfaces (bucket strainers, piping)
