Box coolers

Electrolytic antifouling reduces marine fouling and secures sufficient heat transfer.

Box coolers are affected by fouling and growth of animal organisms like algaes, barnacles, mussels, etc. To create a toxic environment for such biological fouling, copper ions are dissolved from copper anodes.

Copper rod anodes are located below the box cooler tubes to provide an even distribution of copper ions to the box cooler. The system control unit is continuously maintaining the correct current output in order to obtain sufficient amount of copper ions in the seawater surrounding the box cooler.

Box cooler maintenance is normally considerably reduced by the use of electrolytic antifouling.
