Anzacs to get Chloropac systems
The Royal Australian Navy’s Anzac class frigates will be fitted with Evoqua Water Technologies’ Chloropac systems under a contract with BAE Systems Australia announced on 28 July.
The Chloropac system is designed to prevent marine growth and biological fouling in the frigates’ seawater cooling systems.
The system generates a dilute, safe solution of sodium hypochlorite from natural seawater for direct injection into the sea water cooling circuits and sea chests.
Evoqua will deliver the Chloropac systems for installation onto eight Anzac class frigates over the next six years.
