World's fastest underwater cleaning tool for
removing barnacles, zebra mussels, and heavy sea-growth from ship
hulls made of wood and steel, sea walls, dock pilings and piers!
"Barnacle Cutter" is an
attachment specially designed for use with the AS-18 HB, AS-16
HB, AS16-3M9PP, or the AST-P-789, and developed for underwater removal of
barnacles and other encrusted sea growth from steel, concrete
and wood pilings, seawalls, bridge supports, bulkheads and ships.
The attachment's outstanding feature is its ability to remove
6" (152.4 mm)of barnacle-type growth at the rate of 3 to
6 sq. ft. per minute (278709 sq. mm to 557418 sq. mm per minute),
and the capability of removing up to 18" (457.2 mm) of
|Here's how it works...as the
attachment advances across the surfaces being cleaned, the outside
knocker-cutter bars that are attached to the tool's outside
housing (or diameter) shatter the barnacles and other heavy
growth, while the rotating inside hardened steel cutting wheels
follow up with their chipping and scraping action which attacks
and removes the tough barnacle adhesive and balance of material
left by the outside knocker-cutter bars, leaving the surface
clean. The constant flow of water passing through the
tool keeps the inside wheels washed clean and free. These
same round inner cutting wheels that do the chipping and scraping
are also the wheel that the "Barnacle Cutter"
rides and rolls on, acting like casters and adding to the attachment's
mobility and stability.
Displacement of water caused by the rotary
action of the "Barnacle Cutter"
creates a vacuum effect under the attachment which results
in the attachment being pressed and held against the vertical
work surface firmly yet gentle enough to allow the attachment
to yield to the divers' control to guide it in any direction
by applying a slight pressure on either side of the attachment.
The attachment performs equally well in a clockwise
or counter-clockwise direction.
Must be used
