Cathelco’s reputation has been built on providing seawater pipework anti-fouling systems for some of the largest fleets of commercial vessels in the world.
With the ability to treat high volumes of sea water, the system is ideally suited to the requirements of the VLCCs, container ships, LNG carriers and numerous other types of ocean going vessels.
View the animation and see how the copper anode produces ions creating conditions where barnacles and mussels do not settle or breed. At the same time, the aluminiun anode produces ions which suppress corrosion on the internal surfaces of pipes.
Cathelco have formed an alliance with Blokland Non-Ferro, Europe’s leading manufacturer of box cooler systems, to develop a range of anti-fouling systems which are specifically designed to provide the maximum level of effectiveness.
Cathelco has developed a range of anodes with mountings which enable them to be installed in the seachests or strainers of almost any type of vessel.
The size of the anodes is determined by the flow rates and their anticipated design life, taking into consideration the scheduled dry docking period.
Detailed drawings are supplied for every ship to assist in installation and ensure that the anodes are positioned for maximum effectiveness in the seawater flow.
