Biofouling protection for marine instruments and platforms


Biofouling control is a key consideration for the deployment of marine instruments and platforms used for scientific research, military applications and commercial oceanography. The accumulation of biofouling decreases data quality, increases maintenance cost, and until now has limited the use of some sensor types and platforms for long term deployments. RS Aqua now offer the ClearSignal® antifouling protection system which provides permanent protection for marine instrumentation such as ADCPs, CTDs and echosounders as well as submersible platforms such as buoyancy gliders.

ClearSignal is applied in a controlled facility using state-of-the-art industrial coating processes. The intended substrate and instrument type are significant engineering design components of the ClearSignal system. The product formulation is also adjusted for the particular marine application.
