What is MGPS ?

  • Also called Anti Fouling system
  • Marine fouling commonly occurs in sea water circulation systems. This involves the establishment of marine plants & animals, bacterial growths. These fouling organisms enter the system in microscopic and macroscopic form ex larvae and spats, settle and develop into adult forms wherever favorable conditions exist.
  • Hard fouling by mussels, barnacles etc most commonly in seawater circuits and can result in interference in flow conditions, blockage.
  • Traditional chemical methods (like chlorination) of water treatment are now less favoured because chlorine accelerates corrosion attack by causing pitting attack on steel, Is environmentally unacceptable and treatment requires continuos monitoring & control.
