PowerShark

Helping workboats and barges keep up with maintenance and efficient operation, the PowerShark WB3000, the powerful handheld rechargeable underwater tool from Waveblade, Inc., makes fast work of biofouling removal on smaller commercial vessels.

Unless regularly removed, barnacles and other fouling can decrease a vessel's performance and even lead to costly work stoppages. The PowerShark shallow dive maintenance tool enables safe eradication of barnacles and other marine growth in seconds.

Instead of relying on tiring and time-consuming scraping, the PowerShark uses a patented resonant wave technology. Oscillating at 3,000 rpm, the tool's cleaning head disrupts chemical bonds, freeing even the most stubborn fouling with no damage to underlying surfaces. Less effort required on the part of maintenance dive crews helps conserve energy and precious air. The PowerShark assures user safety with an aluminum knuckle guard and skin-safe blades.

The PowerShark runs off a lithium iron phosphate battery capable of 90 minutes of constant use. Equally useful on land or underwater, the waterproof PowerShark has a 20' depth rating and comes equipped with a 4.25' cord for unlimited mobility. The 6Ahr battery can be slung on a weight belt or mounted on a tank, allowing the operator to easily move from work station to work station.

The tool measures 16.5" x 3" x 4.3", with a 4.5" x 7" x 8" battery. Tool, blade and battery together weigh less than 6 lbs. The PowerShark kit, which includes tool, flat chisel blade, standard 3" and 4.5"-wide blades, battery pack, charger and storage bag, retails for $995. Extra batteries retail for $295 each, and spare stainless steel blades start at $24.99.
