Barnacle Buster™ is a safe, non-toxic and biodegradable marine growth remover specifically formulated to meet an industry wide need for fast, safe, cost effective alternatives to mechanical cleaning of seawater cooled equipment. With minimal dismantling required, Barnacle Buster™ can be safely re-circulated through seawater cooling systems, dissolving barnacles, zebra mussels, calcium, rust, lime & all other mineral deposits. Most applications can be completed within 4 hours!
WHY BARNACLE BUSTER? For years marine growth has challenged vessels operators. Build-up of marine growth is the number one reason why water cooled equipment malfunctions. These deposits will reduce equipment efficiency & most likely will result in costly equipment downtime. A thin layer of growth (1/64″) can result in a 15% decrease in efficiency. While conventional methods of cleaning (such as mechanical brushing or harsh acids) do have some success, they are harmful to both the user and the environment & can easily damage the equipment or vessel.
BARNACLE BUSTER, THE ENVIRONMENTAL SOLUTION As the industry leader in the removal of both marine growth & scale build up, TRAC has the environmentally friendly answer to in-place, internal cleaning of all sea water cooled equipment, piping systems, and vessels hulls.
Our products can be safely used on all types of sea water cooled systems commonly found on vessels today. Most important, Barnacle Buster can be safely disposed of down the drain.
Captain Shane Perry came to TRAC with a problem onboard his 124’ Delta motor yacht…
His MTU 2000 series engines were overheating whenever pushed past 1950RPM. After countless man hours spent on troubleshooting with local mechanics, it was clear to all involved that the platelet heat exchanger was not providing adequate heat transfer. Captain Shane was told they would have to be removed and cleaned. This meant 5 days out of service and an additional $3500.00 TRAC came onboard and offered a different solution… Although cleaning the heat exchanger would solve the problem, the pipes feeding the heat exchanger would still be clogged! TRAC supplied Captain Shane with enough Barnacle Buster™ to complete the job. Within one day Captain Shane completed the job and was back on the water!! Total cost… $550.00
