Powershark Tool Eats through Biofouling

November 20, 2013

Serious bio-fouling removal calls for a serious tool. The PowerShark WB3000, a powerful new rechargeable, submersible handheld tool from Waveblade, Inc., removes barnacles and other unwanted growth in seconds. It delivers a new level of efficiency and safety for shallow dive maintenance work on hulls and marine structures, and works equally as well for land-based projects. The PowerShark capitalizes on a patented resonant wave technology. Oscillating at a 3,000 rpm frequency with additional harmonics, the tool’s cleaning head actually breaks the chemical bond between materials. In the process, even the most stubborn fouling falls away without damaging underlying surfaces. The completely waterproof tool operates both on land and underwater, with a 20’ depth rating.
