Ultraguard Master Series

Manufactured in the UK

The Ultraguard Master Series systems are designed, developed and manufactured in the United Kingdom, mostly in the Silicon Glen of

central Scotland.

Ultraguard Antifouling from Marine Growth Prevention Specialists Ltd (MGPS) is the World’s premier ultrasonic antifouling system, providing environmentally friendly and cost effective antifouling solutions to the commercial marine industry.

Based on MGPS’s years of experience in the commercial maritime industry, Ultraguard Antifouling was designed from the start with the unique challenges of the shipping world in mind. The UG series of antifouling systems has fast become the go to alternative to high cost and highly polluting legacy antifouling techniques.

The Birth of the Master Series

The Master Series units have exactly the same signal generation, control and amplifier circuits onboard as the full UG commercial series from Ultraguard does. The Master Series has the same powerful acoustic output and creates the same antifouling effect that major shipping companies all over the world already enjoy from Ultraguard.

The only difference electronically is that we were able to leave out the power supply that converts AC power to DC and replace it with a PCB designed and built by our team which manages the incoming DC power, smooths it out and adds a safety device between the system and the supply from the vessel’s batteries. This is important as the amplifier transformers hold current in their coils and this needs to be prevented from damaging the batteries (During our research we were shocked to see that some competitors don’t have this!).

Packaged into a custom designed and robust aluminium enclosure, the Master Series is the perfect solution for tackling marine growth on small commercial and leisure craft!
