How It Works

Agitate systems produce multiple bursts of ultrasonic energy in a range of targeted pulse frequencies. These pulses are transmitted through the material that the transducer is attached to.

Eco-industrial cleaning excellence

Agitate Ultrasonics is the new solution from NRG Marine, the award-winning company behind Sonihull Ultrasonic Antifouling Technology. We have developed and refined industry-leading technologies that safely protect ocean-going vessels and structures from marine growths such as algae, weeds, and (molluscs) barnacles.

Backed by more than 15 years of experience within the maritime sector, Sonihull now brings our skills and expertise, supported by the only laboratory and R&D centre dedicated to Ultrasonic Antifouling, to Agitate.

  • Non-stop ultrasonic cleaning

    There is no need for regular site callouts, as our self-tuning ultrasonic technology maintains clean surfaces with permanent low-intensity ultrasonic protection.

  • Protects inside-and-outside

    Prevents calcification, scaling, and unwanted biological growth on heat exchangers, cooling systems, strainers and filters, evaporators, boilers, and steam systems.

  • Complete range of solutions

    Agitate is a complete range of fit-and-forget ultrasonic antifouling solutions. When fluids and particles touch hard surfaces, Agitate can protect the assets from scaling or fouling.

Ultrasonic cleaning

When attached to the surface of the asset, the transducers produce a pattern of increasing and decreasing ultrasound pressure on the surface. This process causes agitation, which stops surface contaminants from adhering and provides a cleansing effect.

Increasing and decreasing pressure

The ultrasound produces a pattern of increasing and decreasing pressure on the surface of the material. During the reduced pressure cycle, the surface agitation creates microscopic bubbles, which implode as the pressure increases. This microscopic agitation has a cleansing effect which destroys and disrupts surface contaminants.

Benefits of Agitate

The system creates a boundary layer of microscopic agitation between the pipe wall and the suspended material being transferred.

This leads to a minimal amount of material sticking to surfaces, which drastically reduces blockages, extends maintenance schedules, prevents process shut-downs, and minimises cleaning and disassembly costs.
