Sonihull Pipe AdaptorSea Chest and Raw water Pipe work protection
Fouling in pipe work can be a major problem. It doesn't take long before fouling can start to restrict the flow of water, which can lead to engines and generators being destroyed as a result of over heating and water pumps wearing out due to the sharp increase in pressure. Sonihull has been successfully proven around the world on commecial, military and private vessels as a most valuable addition for the protection of inlets and pipe work
The PA (Pipe Adaptor) for the Sonihull transducer simply bonds to the side of the pipe, allowing the ultrasonic pulses to be transmitted directly into the pipe wall, suppressing the build up of bio film and inhibiting barnacle lavae and other critter's from embedding. Maintenance free, with no expensive anodes to replace, and completely safe on steel and aluminum vessels. The sonihull and the PA mounts have proven themselves as the most credible alternative to impressed current / cathodic protection systems.
