The newly launched ElectroStrainer from ElectroSea is made to prevent marine growth from its strainer basket and through all seawater lines. ElectroStrainer provides yacht owners with peace of mind, letting them know that their strainer basket and seawater pipes remain free of marine growth, with optimal flow rates so the A/C blows cold and they’ll never have to descale again.
The revolutionary ElectroStrainer combines three components: an innovative biofouling prevention device, a hydrodynamic sea strainer and a smart flow monitoring system into one package. ElectroStrainer’s smart “Strainer Alert” technology uses ElectroSea’s ClearVis flow sensor and control system. ElectroStrainer displays a message if debris, grass or seaweed is in its straining basket. ElectroStrainer has no scheduled maintenance and will forever change the boat owner’s approach to seawater management.
