IMPRESSED CURRENT ANTI-FOULING (ICAF)

Fouling is a real issue for sea water constructions. We offer a variety of benefits. Costs are reduced. Performance is increased. And in today’s world, environmental regulations can’t be ignored. Today, the ICAF system is used by many of the major oil and gas offshore operators to protect vertical sea water and fire water pumps on platforms. Other applications include jetty fire pumps and sea water intake systems.

BENEFITS OF THE ANTI-FOULING SYSTEM

  • Reduction in power requirements over alternative methods for fouling control.
  • Low maintenance system
  • Low power requirement
  • No handling or storage of chemicals required
  • Environmentally acceptable

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The method is based upon the use of impressed current on copper and aluminium anodes which are themselves contained within an insulated steel frame which forms the cathode. The anode/cathode electrode unit is suspended from the pump motor base within the confines of the caisson so that all the water entering the pump must pass the electrode unit.

The actual number and size of the anodes is configured to suit each installation and available space for mounting the electrode unit. The anodes are connected to the constant current rectifier located within a safe area. The control panel is designed to regulate the anode currents in both ‘pump on’ and ‘pump off’ condition, so that during the pump standby condition an atmosphere of copper ions in the local environment will
maintain the pump free from fouling.

Investing in high quality anti-fouling protection

Keep your assets working at their fullest potential & stay at an advantage in the move towards sustainable solutions.
