Electronic Fouling Control utilises advanced ultrasonic antifouling technology to create an effective and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional marine antifouling.

How it works

EFC, also known as ultrasonic antifouling uses pulses of ultrasonic frequencies to deter microorganisms from attaching themselves to your motorboat or sailboats hull. The removal of these microorganisms is important in the antifouling process as their presence creates a habitat/food source for larger aquatic organisms such as barnacles.

The ultrasonic frequencies are delivered, to the boat hull through a series of transducers, that are, attached to the inside of the bilge area, meaning no through-hull drilling, is required.

The pulsing creates areas of negative and positive pressure resulting in micro jets effectively creating an invisible shield around the boat hull, leading to the destruction of the single-cell microorganisms (Algae).

24/7 Protection with no loss in performance

Where conventional antifoul will slowly lose effectiveness over time, EFC will continue to work at the same level of optimised power, 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Helping increase your hull efficiency and maintaining peak performance, and ultimately saving on fuel and maintenance costs.
