World leaders and pioneers of advanced ultrasonic antifouling technology since 2007.
After years of research and development, Ultrasonic Antifouling Ltd, a Poole based company with a long association in the marine industry, was set up in 2007 to offer a new and revolutionary way to protect boats from fouling. The ‘UltraSystem’ is an antifouling system that uses high frequency, low power sound waves to destroy algae and bio-films and therefore prevent weed and barnacle growth.
Unlike traditional antifouling paint, ‘The UltraSystem‘ is a low cost, highly effective and completely pollutant-free method of keeping a hull clear of fouling. What’s more, it reduces the amount of annual preparation and painting of the hull.
A clear hull is important to owners. It allows optimum speeds for faster passage times and reduces fuel costs by minimising drag. A recent report by the British Navy states “that it can take up to 30% more fuel to push a dirty hull through the water”.
Product advancements include the January 2011 launch of our UltraSystem Series II. A designed engineered system with advanced transducer technology providing just over 15% more output efficiency. The much improved system makes installation quicker and easier. Series II is the most efficient ultrasonic system in its product class on the market for pleasure yachts as shown by long term independent testing.
Three years of extensive research, development and testing saw the UltraSystem PowerPlus in September 2015. Specifically designed for larger yachts and superyachts, the UltraSystem PowerPlus takes Ultrasonic Antifouling to a whole new level, with an advanced digital program, single control unit providing twice* the output signal to each transducer simultaneously. The system offers three and four transducer configurations.
With the increased interest and use of ultrasonic antifouling technology within the commercial vessel sector, 2020 saw the launch of the UltraSystem SonicPRO high-power output system to provide a cost effective solution for hull protection and complex sea chest and seawater cooling pipework arrangements, box coolers and thruster tunnels.
As the world leader in the use of ultrasonic technology for the prevention of underwater fouling, our aim at Ultrasonic Antifouling Ltd is to offer a solution that is highly effective, environmentally friendly and very cost effective to an age old problem.
