Globatech Australia is the manufacturer of the international market leading Ultrasonic Antifouling systems “CleanAHull” and “H2oBioSonic”.
Globatech Australia is an Australian based technology & manufacturing firm that specialises in the design, development and manufacturing of quality Australian made electronics. Throughout the development of our electronics a focus to energy conservation, environmental impact and long electronic life is paramount.
For as long as there has been mariners there has been marine growth problems. The growth of marine fouling causes many issues from reduced performance to increased fuel consumption. Typically the only way to prevent this is through the use of advanced anti foul coatings, however these coatings also have their limitations and often fail to provide the protection required. CleanAHull™ utilises advanced digital ultrasonics to generate regions of microscopic high and low pressure around the vicinity of the hull that destroys algae and drastically reduces the marine growth rate, improving the performance of the vessel and drastically reducing the fuel consumption while also extending the haul out and repainting intervals.
“We essentially utilise a similar technology to ultrasonic cleaning, used in industry and medical for a long long time. Once you understand the principles behind ultrasonic cavitation and ultrasonic sterilisation it makes complete sense that when applied properly to this application it works a treat.” – Says Joshua David, Globatech Australia CEO and Head Engineer.
