When discussing the problems of biofouling, you can think of problems with algae, bacteria, biofilm, barnacles and marine growth deposits in waterlines and machines. Micro-organisms create a so-called biofilm in pipes and machines, which affects the efficiency of systems or may even clog entire systems. In many cases the water is treated chemically to avoid these problems. The Merus ring however provides an environment-friendly solution.
During the course of several test runs in the laboratory, Merus, using specifically developed equipment, was able to determine that biofouling can be reduced or even stopped entirely.
The rings bring back the initially experienced performance level in most cases and thus prolong the lifetime of the costly equipment in question. To sum up the Merus rings signify excellent performance levels coupled with a significant decrease in operational and maintenance costs.
