CORROSION’s ICAF-MGPS marine anti-fouling system guarantees optimum protection, reducing costs and enhancing performance while also helping to meet stringent environmental regulations about the use of chemicals to control biocides.
Designed to be operative on all sorts of vessels and constructions in seawater, including box coolers, seawater inlet systems, submerged pump units, in addition to various industrial applications, CORROSION’s MGPS for ships and vessels solutions are easy to install and maintain.
What’s more, all data can be downloaded to an external computer and transferred through the Internet. This makes MGPS for ships and vessels easy to monitor and adjust.
‘Marine growth’ refers to all unwanted living organisms such as microorganisms, algae, plants and small animals that attach themselves to or grow on ships or marine infrastructure such as wind turbine foundations. Marine growth can be problematic for a number of reasons, such as impeding water-cooling machines and leading to an increased rate of corrosion.
ICAF stands for Impressed Current Anti Fouling. ICAF systems consist of copper anodes that release very small quantities of copper into a ship’s seachest or water system in order to reduce or prevent the build-up of marine organisms (such as mussels and barnacles), also known as marine growth.
