Barnacle Buster by TRAC - Barnacle Buster Concentrate & Full Strength

Barnacle Buster is a safe, non-toxic, biodegradable marine growth remover that provides a fast, cost-effective alternative to mechanical cleaning of seawater cooled equipment. With minimal dismantling required, Barnacle Buster™ can be safely re-circulated through seawater cooling systems, dissolving barnacles, zebra mussels, calcium, rust, lime and all other mineral deposits. Most applications completed within four hours! 

Why Barnacle Buster?

For years marine growth has challenged vessel operators. Buildup of marine growth is the number one reason why water cooled equipment malfunctions. These deposits will reduce equipment efficiency and most likely will result in costly equipment downtime. A thin layer of growth (1/64") can result in a 15% decrease in efficiency. While conventional methods of cleaning (such as mechanical brushing or harsh acids) do have some success, they are harmful to both the user and the environment, and can easily damage the equipment or vessel.

Barnacle Buster can be used to safely remove marine growth from:

  • Marine A/C & Refrigeration Cooling Systems
  • Engines' Seawater Cooling Systems
  • Heat Exchangers
  • Bow Thrusters
  • Water Makers
  • Sea Strainers
  • Propellers
  • Seacocks
  • Pumps
  • Piping
  • Hulls

Barnacle Buster works to remove scale buildup, not metal

Barnacle Buster can be safely used on all types of seawater cooled systems commonly found on vessels today. Most important, Barnacle Buster can be safely disposed of down the drain.

How often should you use Barnacle Buster?

As a general rule of thumb, an annual engine wash is a good preventive maintenance practice. This is especially important for motors with flexible rubber impellers. Marine fouling is the most common cause of impeller failure.

Monitoring engine temperature is critical. A sustained 5-10 degree rise in temperature could mean your cooling system is starting to have issues. Flushing can save you a lot of headaches before the problem gets worse. Most engines use seawater expelled from the engine to cool the exhaust gases leaving the engine. When this flow of water is reduced, steam (or white smoke) starts to come out of the exhaust pipe. One cause could be a clogged heat exchanger or aftercooler. For boat owners, an engine flush can prove to be an inexpensive troubleshooting technique.


Safety of Barnacle Buster

Barnacle Buster is biodegradable and can be disposed of through your regular onboard sewage system.

Barnacle Buster passes and complies with the requirements of the California Department of Hazardous Substances' Fish Toxicity Test (Title 22), and meets International NSF Standard 60.

Barnacle Buster is classified as non-flammable under current EPA guidelines and meets all requirements.



Can I dilute the Barnacle Buster concentrate more than recommended for use?

Yes, but diluting the solution will not give the desired results.
