Marine Growths , such as barnacles and mussels, foul the internal surfaces of sea and fresh water systems. This results in clogged pipes and valves, lower heat exchanger efficiency, fouling of fire fighting equipment, increased fuel consumption and other system problems. Marine growths also encourage biological corrosion in addition to normal chemical corrosion; both of these problems substantially increase maintenance costs and interfere with proper ship/equipment operaing performance.

In the past , chlorine injection has been utilized to combat the foregoing problems. However, these systems are expensive, utilize scarce manpower, and introduce toxic chemicals which not only require special handling but may also accelerate corrosion. Additionally, chlorine use is now banned in some major waterways.

Elinca Anti-Fouling Systems offer safe, effective, low-cost control of marine growth in water systems.
