Marine / Shipboard

The perpetual growth of sea life within a cooling system can cost even small vessels tens of thousand dollars a year.  Mollusca, algae slime and weed not only constrict the flow of cooling water to the heat exchanger surfaces, they also hasten localized corrosion by restricting oxygen diffusion, and cause destructive turbulence at inlets which can severely shorten the life of affected components. In the general and progressive loss of vacuum, and hence of fuel-efficiency which results from a steadily fouling circuit. By eliminating fouling, ships can save on fuel costs as well as making incalculable savings on maintenance.

Electrochlorination offers a final and comprehensive solution to the problems of marine fouling throughout the shipboard cooling system. OPTIChlor™ Marine Electrochlorination System has been specifically developed for ship board applications and its superlative performance, engineering excellence and long, trouble-free life are generally acknowledged to be unsurpassed.
