ICAF - MGPS

Fouling is a real issue for sea water constructions. Marine Growth Protection Systems (MGPS) offer a variety of benefits. Costs are reduced. Performance is increased. And in today’s world, environmental regulations can’t be ignored.
Investing in high quality anti-fouling protection will keep your assets working at their fullest potential. And keep you at an advantage in the move towards sustainable solutions.
Getting certification is a definite advantage nowadays. Vessel owners, operators, and shipyards who purchase systems, equipment, and spare parts that comply with the increasingly strict regulations, will greatly benefit—especially as time goes on. The EU, and other parts of the world, will continue clamping down on the use of biocidals, chemicals used to control organisms. Good maintenance and the use of compliant systems have their pay-off now. And even more so in the (near) future.

Corrosion has been in the business of protecting sea water constructions and vessels since 1993.

Corrosion knows the field. And the players. Our Impressed Current Anti-fouling Systems (ICAF), or Marine Growth Protection Systems (MGPS), guarantee optimum protection against all types of marine fouling. On all sorts of vessels and constructions—just about anything located in seawater. Box coolers, seawater inlet systems, submerged pump units. Various industrial applications as well.
The operating principle of ICAF systems is based on an artificially triggered voltage difference between copper anodes and integrated steel plate cathodes. As the copper dissolves into the seawater, an environment is created which prevents fouling and protects the structure. The power unit ensures that the copper anodes add precisely the number of copper particles required to the seawater.
Corrosion has been in the business of protecting sea water constructions and vessels since 1993. As experts, we can ensure the long-term, perfect operation of the system. All data can be downloaded to an external computer and transferred through the Internet. Easy to check. Easy to adjust.
