New Hempel Coatings Meets

Future Requirements

Hempel recently launched worldwide its Globic SP-ECO range of 2003 IMO-compliant antifoulings, a high-perfor- mance, self-polishing antifoul- ing with a unique fiber compos- ite structure. The innovation is being touted by the manufactur- er as revolutionary as the fibers incorporated in the paint are designed to give exceptional mechanical strength and optimal polishing control, offering antifouling protection for up to five years.

Fiber reinforced materials — which are the norm for many everyday and marine-industry products — is new concept for marine antifouling coatings.

Hempel has invested a decade and millions of dollars in the development of the technology which led to Glo- bic SP-ECO, a coating, which the company says has probably the highest solids content of any of the new 2003 IMO-compliant products, meaning less use of solvents and less air pollution.

Globic SP-ECO has a controlled leached layer, which means that subsequent applica- tions only need high-pressure fresh water hos- ing, thus eliminating the need for a sealer coat.

The antifoulings represent a new era in 2003

IMO-compliant technology.

The need for development of these new tech- nologies is based on the ban of the use of TBT- based technology, new and evolving regula- tions, which demand that antifouling paints have no adverse environmental impact. The new regulations stipulate the banning of the application of TBT-based products by January 1, 2003, and the banning of the presence of the

TBT-based products on the hull by January 1, 2008.

Smart Pneumatic Level

Sensor with Generic 4 20mA Output

The Bubbler is an electro-pneumatic level trans- mitter that allows remote level measurement using a 4-20mA analog output. The lack of air pressure poses no operational problems, due to an auto- matic one-way valve which closes as soon as the pressure drops below 1 bar, this prevents back flow in the bubbling line towards the transmitter.

Over pressure is also protected against by an automatic one-way valve. • It's the size of a grapefruit • Explosion proof housing • Accuracy .3% full scale • Automatic over-pressure valve • Automatic stop valve for air failure • Automatic cleaning of bubbling line • Connection for pressurized tanks • 2 pair 24 VDC and 4-20mA cable • Top or side mount
