Who We Are
We manufacture and sale
hydraulically powered submersible hull and prop cleaning equipment.
We also design and build custom hydraulic units for specialized
applications. Armada markets its cleaning systems worldwide
direct-so we can maintain a "Direct Line of Communication"
with our equipment users, to provide engineering, parts, service
and maintenance assistance.
equipment is designed specifically for fast and efficient cleaning
of underwater surfaces. A range of systems are available for
various applications, from cleaning any pleasure craft to supertankers.
Regardless of the size of the vessel, the operating principles and
key features of Armada's equipment remain the same.
products are diver-operated, hydraulic-driven, rotary brush cleaning
units. A wide range of brushes and abrasive discs are available
to cope with virtually any type of marine fouling on any underwater
surface. The speed of brush rotation is adjustable by the
diver to produce exactly the type of cleaning action required --
to go gently and rapidly over surfaces with light slime or more
slowly to tackle heavy shellfish. When brush rotation is initiated
the units create their own suction and their forward motion making
the diver's job relatively easy. He simply guides the unit over
the hull in lateral passes from bow to stern and completes the job
by polishing the prop, running gear, etc.
The power units are rugged,
self-contained and mounted on wheels (or skid-mounts on the larger
systems) within a protective frame. Armada's power
units are compact and mobile and include shock-mounts and mufflers
to reduce vibration and ensure quiet operation.
