Save Time & Money
HullSonic Ultrasonic Anti-fouling will save you time and money by keeping your hull cleaner for longer. Reducing your antifouling, haul outs and fuel consumption costs.
Let HullSonic Ultrasonic Systems create a barrier of protection to continuously target and prevent bio-fouling from developing on your boat.
BioFouling on the hull ruines the performance of any vessel. With HullSonic you can keep a cleaner hull and increase your speed and improve fuel economy.
The Benefits of Ultrasonic Anti-fouling
The Hull Sonic electronic anti-fouling system is a must have for all vessels living in the water. Ultrasonic Anti-fouling provides a plethora of benefits by reducing or preventing marine biofouling; from improved performance to saving money and time!
Installation is a simple process and typically can be done without any special tools.
Reduce pollution with improved fuel efficiency & use less toxic anti-fouling paints with less applications.
Increased Resale Value
Vessels with our HullSonic electronic anti-fouling bottom paint preinstalled fetch a higher resale value.
Prevent Marine Bio-Fouling
HullSonic Ultrasonic systems are an effective solution to prevent and slow most marine fouling.
Reduced drag with a cleaner hull, improves fuel efficiency and increases top speed.
Save Money & Time
Save money & time with fewer haul outs, less anti-foul paint and less trips to the yard.
How Ultrasonic Anti-fouling works
Hull Sonic Ultrasonic Anti-fouling systems work by emitting ultrasonic acoustic energy pulses. The ultrasonication energy is transmitted directly to the hull or running gear through HullSonic transducers attached to the hull or running gear within the bilge. The HullSonic anti-fouling transducers are similar to those already installed in your vessel for sonar and depth finding.
Ultrasonic anti-fouling properties were discovered by Navy's around the world when it was found that fouling was drastically reduced within a vicinity of sonar domes and depth finding equipment on submarines and ship hulls. Over the years there has been many other discoveries for the diverse uses of ultrasonic energy such as ultrasonic cleaning, ultrasonic welding (think of those plastic packaging that is hard to get open), algae control, and many many more.
With this knowledge and amazing advancements in digital electronics coupled with our 10+ years experience in the ultrasonic anti-fouling industry we have determined the best algorithms and frequency bands to target for protection. Specific frequency bands are used to discourage the growth of different marine fouling. For example Barnacles and similar attachment are deterred by frequencies around 20kHz - 30kHz and the cellular structure and reproductive cycle of algae and micro-organisms is disrupted at higher frequencies 40kHz - 70kHz.
The HullSonic system operates in a range between 19kHz - 80kHz and has a propriatary algorithm built from our years of experience that self-calibrates to determine the best frequency bands for your vessel. With these targetted advanced frequency pulses the HullSonic effectively works to reduce and stop marine fouling from attaching to your hull.
