Cathelco Marine Growth Prevention System

Cathelco marine growth prevention systems (MGPSs) for seawater pipework are easy and economical to install and can be found on ships worldwide. Designed to eliminate blockages caused by barnacle and mussel growth in seawater cooling lines, the systems are available for vessels of every size. Without antifouling protection, pipes can become encrusted with organisms, leading to a blockage that reduces the efficiency of the seawater cooling system.
