For safe cleaning, it is crucial to be able to adjust the cleaning pressure to clean thoroughly while reducing the wear on the net.
The most gentle
Pressure can easily be adjusted with the net cleaner, which today delivers the market's lowest cleaning pressure. The unique patented technology with thruster control allows this gentle cleaner to deliver plenty of water at low pressure during washing. The pressure range for use is between 90 and 150 bar, which is significantly lower than competing equipment, and water flow is a maximum of 326 litres per minute.
“With this net cleaner we can remove heavy fouling, such as mussels, when we need to. And we can do normal maintenance cleaning very carefully,” says Øyvind Høie, CEO in the service company Yatek AS. “In addition, the impregnation lasts longer. This is an important feature that gives our customers a big win,” concludes Høie.
Increased interest in Northern Norway
Østerbø Yanmar net cleaners are in use all along the Norwegian coast and in Scotland. “We have particularly seen an increased interest from northern Norway lately. We see that the durable equipment that handles rough conditions fits well into this part of the country,” says Kim Andre Eide, aquaculture sales manager for Østerbø Maskin AS.
The fact that it is easy to use and actually cleans the whole net makes this cleaner a winner.
“We hear that where there are a lot of mussels our cleaner delivers where others give up. This is what we in Østerbø Maskin call a reliable solution,” says Eide.
Leco Marine in Scotland has reached over 1400 work hours without stops on their Yanmar cleaner. They have taken normal precautions. “We have adhered to the Yanmar maintenance schedule (per 500 hours) and taken care of the machine over the past year to ensure its longevity. After good and complete training from Østerbø, our crew got a good technical understanding of the product that has helped us to continuous operation. The Yanmar net cleaner in our experience is the net cleaner with the highest reliablility. 1400 work hours in rough conditions without stop says it all,” says David Skea, managing director of Leco Marine. “This reliability allows us to have confidence in fulfilling our customers’ expectations.”
