Sonihull Ultrasonic Antifouling

The Sonihull ultrasonic antifouling system by NRG Marine uses the latest digital electronics and ultrasonic transducer technology. This system works by producing bursts of ultrasonic energy in multiple frequencies, the energy creates a pattern of alternating positive and negative pressure. Microscopic bubbles are created from the negative pressure, while the positive pressure implodes them forming vapor cavities known as cavitation. The result of the implosion is a micro jet action that creates a cleaning effect on the hulls surface below the waterline. It also resonates and destroys single cell organisms such as algae. Removing the initial link in the food chain prevents barnacles and other marine life to feed on the algae

Why Use Sonihull?

Every seafarer knows that marine growth is a constant problem aboard vessels. Whether a supertanker or a yacht, marine growth causes:
• Reduced speed due to extra drag.
• Increased fuel consumption, estimated at as much as 20%.
• Propeller cavitation (which in turn causes extensive damage to propellers).
• Expensive docking and repainting costs

In simple terms: Marine Growth Costs You Money!

Sonihull is a cost effective antifouling product that works alongside a conventional antifouling paint with additional benefits.

Installing Sonihull Ultrasonic Antifouling to your vessel's hull and cooling systems will improve hydrodynamic performance, cooling efficiency, and fuel consumption. Installing Sonihull Ultrasonic Antifouling increases profitability for commercial vessels and massively reduces leisure boating costs!
