Over time, algae, mussels, worms and other marine life will be deposited on the hull. This so-called biological contamination has two main effects. Due to the attachment of sea organisms, the hull of the ship becomes rough, which increases the resistance of the hull and therefore increases the energy required at a given speed. In addition, the risk of corrosion on the hull increases due to the environment created by the biofilm on the hull.
The use of high-pressure pump-driven nozzle technology to remove organisms is an effective way to clean the hull. The KAMAT high-pressure system has been established in this application for many years: with the help of a manual spray gun system and high pressure, the fouling of the hull can be completely removed by a high-pressure water jet. High-pressure gun system and rotating nozzle are the accessories of LiFeng high-pressure plunger pump, which not only has a high level of spray gun controllability, but also has the ability to effectively clean a large area.
As well as cleaning, paint-removal is also required to enable the subsequent application of a new corrosion protection.High-pressure cleaner produces only very low impact forces. Layers are removed selectively, without attacking the base material. Damage to structures is also eliminated, just as are blasting material residues.
