Marine growth such as barnacles and mussels, foul the internal surfaces of sea water systems. This results in clogged pipes and valves, lower heat exchanger efficiency, and increased fuel consumption. Marine growths also encourage biological corrosion in addition to normal chemical corrosion; both of these problems substantially increase maintenance costs and interfere with proper shipequipment operating performance. Chlorine injection has been utilized to combat these problems However these systems are expensive, utilize scarce manpower, and introduce toxic chemicals which not only require special handling but may also accelerate corrosion. Additionally, chlorine use is now banned in some majorwaterways. ELiNCA is the reliable, efficient, low cost answer to these problems. The ELiNCA system protects sea water installations by the use of anodes with an impressed current. These unique anodes are made from copper or iron. Copper ions are added to sea water in extremely small amounts by electrolysis to prevent marine growth. The process is carefully controlled and ships use only 12 volts and a maximum of 2 amps to each anode. This action not only reduces biofouling but also reduces corrosion. The iron anodes form a gelatinous hydroxide which assists in suppressing chemical corrosion.
