MARINE GROWTH PREVENTION
It’s an age-old problem: keeping those all-important raw-water lines clear of barnacles and marine growth. Rather than having to flush those lines with harsh chemicals, the Clearline system from ElectroSea takes a more proactive approach. Introduced in early 2019, Clearline generates a low level of chlorine—similar to what you’d find in tap water—and it’s enough to prevent barnacle growth. A control unit dynamically adjusts the precise amount of chlorinated seawater, which flows through the raw-water lines for the boat’s air conditioners and other systems, while a secondary flow runs back through the strainers to keep them cleaner longer. This means these systems operate at peak performance with optimal flow rates. Currently there are five Clearline models, including the latest—the CL-2000—for systems with flow rates up to 75 gallons per minute. They can be retrofit-ted to older vessels as well.
