An efficient use of one"s time benefits the whole. The U.S. Military"s current method of cleaning their naval fleet"s propellers is a laborious task; often requiring a multitude of hand tools, as power tools are often prohibited due to the risk of abrading the propeller"s unique surface. This not only puts the fleet out of service during this time, but the cost associated with it trickles down to the taxpayer. Inefficiency is the issue. However, the inefficiency of the current method, and the associated costs that go with it, can be significantly reduced by the use of a High-Frequency Non-Abrasive Propeller Cleaning System. This system utilizes high-frequency oscillations that cut thru, parallel to the propeller"s surface, and removes the ocean fouling without damaging the propeller itself. The result is reduced time: an increase in operator efficiency, a reduction in cost and the fleet going back into service faster.
