Now there is a better way to control algae. It is environmentally friendly, cost effective and chemical free. The methods is not revolutionary technology. It was discovered decades ago that ultrasound would destroy algae cells.
However, at the time of the discovery, ultrasonic wave generators were too costly to make it a marketable product.
But today, NRG Sonihull ultrasonic sound wave generation, that is inaudible to and no threat to people, animals, fish or plants is now available and affordable for those who want to get rid of algae and other harmful micro-organisms such as destructive root parasitic fungi, Fusarium and Pythium.
Although the concept of using ultrasonic for keeping your boat hull clean is a relatively new application, the concept of ultrasonic cleaning is not new, it has been around for over 30 years, used for a wide variety of applications, from cleaning of dental and medical equipment, fine jewelry, through to de-gunging drains and automotive parts to name but a few, also, in a subject closer to sailors hearts Ultrasonic’s is also used for keeping pipes clean in many breweries and hostelries around the world.
Over the past decade, environmental issues have meant much tighter controls on industrial cleaning products especially chlorofluorocarbons, with “necessity being the mother of all inventions” industry needed to find an alternative solution, Ultrasonic cleaning was considered the most viable solution, by embracing the latest in digital electronics and transducer technology, the industry made a quantum leap forward over the last decade to fill the needs of industry.
The Best solutions & CO Hull protection system utilizes the latest digital electronics and Ultrasonic transducer technology, by producing multiple bursts of ultra sonic energy simultaneously in a multiple range of frequencies. This energy produces a pattern of alternating positive and negative pressure.
The alternating pattern creates microscopic bubbles during periods of negative pressure and implodes them during periods of positive pressure in a phenomenon known as "cavitation." The implosion creates a micro-jet action that not only provides the cleaning effect on the hulls surface below the water line, it also resonates and destroys single cell organisms such as algae. The removal of the initial link in the food chain inhibits the growth barnacles and other marine life that feed on the algae.
