HOW NOXX HYD™ WORKS
NOXX HYD™ NONPOLLUTING ANTIFOULING
EMCS Industries Ltd. is proud to offer a nonpolluting antifouling solution – NOXX HYD™.
NOXX HYD™ is a low frequency nonpolluting antifouling solution that works on various applications and vessels from ocean-going freighters to the largest cruise ship. Similarly, this nonpolluting antifouling solution will also work on structures in the marine environment that are difficult to protect by conventional antifouling solutions.
NOXX HYD™ is not an ultrasonic MGPS. It is, however, a nonpolluting antifouling system using a low frequency hydrosonic system.
The system comprises one or more control panels and junction boxes with terminal strips and emitters. In fact, installation is straightforward. As a result, the control panels fit into a convenient location inboard side on the area to be protected. Once placed in the correct location, the emitters operate on 120 or 220v AC and 12 or 24 volts DC, with minimal energy consumption.
The NOXX HYD™ nonpolluting antifouling system emitters work by producing a low volume, low frequency audio signal transmitted through the vessel surfaces that need to be protected. This frequency will, in turn, make the settling/attachment surface or environment undesirable for organisms such as barnacles and mussels that would typically attach to the surface or structure. It does not protect against or remove soft fouling (e.g., grass, algae, seaweed).
The areas to be protected need to be thoroughly cleaned before installation AND before initiating the system. The equipment can operate continuously to provide ongoing protection. There is no need to bring the vessel out of the water to install the equipment.
