- Marine Growth Prevention System (MGPS)
- Support & Services
Using the latest advancement in marine research and technology, the Electrochlorination / Hypochlorination System was designed to prevent the marine growth from built up internal seawater system by injecting the chlorine to suction point. Using electrolysis, this intelligent, self-sufficient system is able to produce chlorine by breaking up the water molecule present in seawater itself, keeping your seawater pipeline system in peak condition always.
The process begins with some portion of seawater from seawater mainline system is channel to generating chamber to convert it to chlorine contain water, where the seawater is electrolysed and broken down by specialised electrodes into chlorine, sodium hydroxide and hydrogen. The product produce by generating chamber will discharge at suction point by via injection nozzle.
The chlorine infused seawater is then introduced into the seawater used to cool the various parts of the system that using seawater. The presence of chlorine deters marine organism from adhering and compounding itself in all parts of the system, including the sea chest, piping,heat exchanger and others.The process begins when the seawater from the ship’s pump is led to the Generating Chamber, where the seawater is electrolysed and broken down by specialised electrodes into chlorine, sodium hydroxide and hydrogen.
The chlorine infused seawater is then introduced into the seawater used to cool the various parts of the ship via injection into the ship’s scoops or sea chests through the nozzles. The presence of chlorine deters marine organism from adhering and compounding itself in all parts of the ship, including the sea chest, piping and heat exchanger.
The use of chlorine to counter Marine Growth is a well-researched and known subject. Tests have shown that 0.2 to 0.5 PPM of constant chlorination is able to keep all forms of marine fouling at bay.
While the larger marine shell organisms (e,g mussels) may attempt to protect themselves from the chlorinated water by shutting their shells and hiding themselves within, they will however be unable to feed in such an environment, hence depriving of the ability to settle themselves as deposits in the system interior.
Studies have also shown that any chlorination of a value higher than 0.5 PPM may induce corrosion of the system internal parts, such as the metallic piping, and other metallic Equipment. That being said, you need not worry about the corrosive aspect when deploying our Electrochlorination / Hypochlorite System as our system is endowed with the latest technology to sensitively and intelligently self-regulate the chlorination process accurately, ensuring your ship is constantly protected by all manners of marine fouling yet having none of the ill effects of chlorine corrosion.
