The Akvasmart Cage Cleaner is developed to implify and streamline the cleaning and removal of marine fouling.
The washing unit can easily be mounted at the stern of a workboat. The Cage Cleaning system consists of a lifting unit and a submersible part and a hydraulical driving wheel system that rotates the cage while it is being flushed and cleaned.
For cages without sinker tubes, the cleaner is submerged below the floating pipes. The unit is placed with the inner pipe connected to the drive rolls while the outer pipe is positioned against the sliding surface and steering rolls. The Cage Cleaner can also be delivered with a system for flushing sinker tubes where the sinker tube and floating pipes are cleaned simultaneously. It is generally enough to rotate the cage one turn to ensure proper cleaning.
An effective and well proven concept
The cleaning unit hydraulically lifts a part of the cage over the surface and the flushing occurs when the cage is rotated around it´s own axis, while a windscreen washer mounted on rotating arms performs the cleaning using water under high pressure.
Installation and use
Connection points for the screws are included at the stern of the workboat. Dedicated work platforms can also be offered to simplify the access inspection and maintenance. The whole cleaning process occurs without any people close to the cage and can be operated by one single man in a workboat.
