GLOBA.tech Australia was incorporated in 2006 to develop environmentally friendly technologies, primarily for the marine sector. It was decided early on, with the legislation on marine biofouling coatings and restrictions on paint contents including copper and TBT acticides and biocides, to focus on the emerging technology of ultrasonic algae prevention. Often called Marine Growth Prevention Systems or MGPS for short. This technology sector was in it’s infancy and while it showed much potential there was a mish mash of available products that fell well short of the technological advancement required for a serious solution.
After years of development Globatech Australia released our first Ultrasonic Anti-fouling system for consumer use over a decade ago and has since continued to develop the technology, improving results, efficiency and maintaining the status of the market standard. In 2015, Globatech Australia took the technology into the industrial sector and our industrial systems are utilized on everything from HVAC cooling towers to prevent legionella, to Box Coolers within Tug boats and shipping.
The HullSonic was launched recently in late 2015 as the most affordable consumer Ultrasonic Antifouling solution available from Globatech Australia, utilizing the same advanced digital micro controlled transducer drive systems and taking advantage of all of the years of development the HullSonic shook up the market and brought a level of quality never before seen in the consumer market.
For as long as there has been mariners there has been marine growth problems. The growth of marine fouling causes many issues from reduced performance to increased fuel consumption. Typically the only way to prevent this is through the use of advanced anti foul coatings, however these coatings also have their limitations and often fail to provide the protection required. The HullSonic™ utilises advanced digital ultrasonics to generate regions of high and low pressure around the vicinity of the hull that destroys algae and drastically reduces the marine growth rate, improving the performance of the vessel and drastically reducing the fuel consumption while also extending the haul out and repainting intervals.
