Antifouling removal

Antifouling removal, but you are not sure about the best possibility ? Then have a look at the cleaning machines of systeco. With cleaning technology, Tornado ACS antifouling removal is done successfully and eco-friendly without great effort.

Forget about corrosive and grinding machine for antifouling removal, with cleaning machine Tornado ACS it is much simpler!

Due to the patented vacuum blast method, antifouling is completely removed from any boat surface. The eco-friendly cleaning equipment Tornado ACS works in contrary to grinding machines and sandblasters in a closed cycle. It doesn't let any removals enter the environment during the boat cleaning.

You simply place the jet hood of the cleaning machine onto the boat's surface and move the jet lance calm and steady over the surface.

Through window panes, you can then observe how the paint is removed from the surface by the blasting material (granulate) and dissolves from the surface and disappears through the suction tube in the machine. The disposal of the residues takes place only after the cleaning process.

Systeco cleaning machines are light and compact and can be used anywhere. They are easy to work with and have a low noise level. Health and safety measures like protective clothing and protection glasses are not necessary for the boat varnish removal with systeco.

Try it yourself! With the cleaning technology Tornado ACS, antifouling removal is easily done. Just contact one of our trade partner.

Experience with vacuum blasting

Our test boat is a fast cruising yacht whose owner attaches great importance to a smooth underwater hull. Over the years, countless layers of antifouling have accumulated and are beginning to peel off in some places.

When we start our work, the first thing we do is to find out what layers are on the hull, because we don't want to damage the underwater hull under any circumstances. That's why we start by blasting with a fine granulate. Slowly but very precisely, we remove the layers of antifouling and come to the epoxy coating on the gelcoat, a so-called osmosis protection coating. The epoxy coating must not be damaged under any circumstances, as only the antifouling coatings are to be removed.

After a few passes, we use a coarser granulate and now the antifouling can be removed even faster, but still not fast enough for some people. Compared to the random orbital sander, which releases a good cloud of dust despite the suction, the Tornado ACS works completely dust-free. The Tornado ACS scores particularly well for overhead work, because the man on the random orbital sander gets long arms, while the bell of the Tornado ACS sucks itself onto the underwater hull and only the jet lance has to be moved, the random orbital sander requires a lot of force to be pressed against the hull.
