The CaviBlaster® cleans the surface of any underwater structure using the energy released by the implosion of the bubbles during the cavitation process. When directed at the surface being cleaned, the energy released by the collapsing bubbles causes marine growth to be removed from the surface.
The system consists of a diesel-powered high-pressure pumping unit with connecting high pressure hose which is capable of operating one 2828 Zero-Thrust Dump Gun; two 1428 Zero-Thrust Guns; or one DoubleDome with four rotating nozzles. When operating with the 2828 Zero-Thrust Dump Gun, closing the trigger valve causes water to dump through the dump valve in the handle of the gun. When operating with two 1428 Zero Thrust guns, closing the trigger valve causes the power unit to go into bypass mode, unloading the engine and the pump. The DoubleDome does not have a trigger valve and water flow is controlled by turning the power unit on and off.
The CaviBlaster® 2828 power unit is a complete “plug and play” system built into a self-supporting frame that allows quick deployment and/or installation of the unit. Water can be supplied from either a pressurized source; directly from the natural source via an electric booster pump supplied with the power unit; or from a gravity storage feed tank.
The unit is equipped with many features to maintain operator safety while operating at pressures of 2,800-psi (193 BAR).
Base unit includes two 14 GPM (53 l/m) guns and one 28 GPM (106 l/m) gun. The system will operate two CaviDomes or two 14 GPM (53 l/m) guns simultaneously. Engines from other manufacturers are available upon request.
