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 puts a very high value on a smooth underwater hull set. Over the years, countless layers of antifouling have accumulated, which started to peel in a few places.

At the beginning of our work we need to find out what layers are located on the trunk, because we do not want the underwater hull damage. So let's start with a fine granule to shine on. Slowly but very precise, we degrade the fouling layers and coming on the epoxy paint which is located on the gel coat, a so-called osmotic protective coating.

The epoxy paint must not be damaged under any circumstances, because only the antifouling paints must be removed. After a few runs, we took a coarser granulate and now the antifouling can be removed more quickly, but for one or the other spot it is still not fast enough. Compared with the orbital sander which in spite of a good suction still releases a dust cloud, the Tornado ACS works really dust-free.

In the overhead work the Tornado ACS scores, because the man working with the orbital sander gets long arms, while the jet hood of the Tornado ACS sucks itself onto the underwater hull and only the jet lance has to be moved. The orbital sander requires a lot of strength to be pushed to the hull.
