How SeaBis works.

We identify the cause of the stray current and repair it.

Stray current electrolysis control in 3 steps, permanently.

Step 1 Understand the cause.

The cause of corrosive current is one or more of the following:

  1. Moisture in navigation lights
  2. Carbon dust from brushes build up at motors or alternators
  3. Insulation failure
  4. New equipment
  5. Bad design.

Now use the SeaBis Master System to correct the cause. So SeaBis will teach you how to correctly buy, install, maintain and operate equipment without creating corrosive current.

After one year submerged, no marine electrolysis

Step 2 Identify the cause.

SeaBis indicates the power side so halving your work.

Connect SeaBis brown to battery positive, blue to battery negative. Then green / yellow current sense to metal hull or engine body. Make good connections with no paint, oil or grease. SeaBis indicates the ability of corrosive current to create corrosion. Now switch off circuits until SeaBis indicates Normal (green).

The cause was the last circuit switched off. It now has no power so is easily identified. Correct the CAUSE by following SeaBis Instructions. Causes and their repair are detailed in SeaBis Instructions. Support is included.

SeaBis System is accurate to one part in ten millionth amp. That is why we provide a 8 year  guarantee and warranty.

FAQ

The original cause of stray current electrolysis current is the current created by moisture in navigation lights, carbon dust build up at motors or alternators, insulation failure, new equipment or bad design.  The SeaBis Master System will identify and correct the cause. Using SeaBis will teach you how to correctly buy,  install, maintain and operate equipment without creating corrosive current. Click – link: Wikipedia – 

Note DC (battery) power – the Apparatus power leads are red and black, and first paragraph specifically states DC, not AC(mains or shore power).

AC – Mains / shore / inverter power. AC current (power) cannot cause corrosion as it reverses direction every half cycle / Hertz.

In explanation: If the cause takes off a metal particle in the first half cycle it will replace it when current reverses direction in the second half cycle.

Therefore AC cannot cause corrosion – it is impossible.

DC (battery) current flows in the same direction, permanently.

So DC will continually dissolve your metal. 24 hours every day of the year.

Eliminate the CAUSE by using Instructions supplied with SeaBis Master.

To prove there cannot be DC in AC:  Read the specification on your electric kettle / pot / hotplate. There will be no DC entry. So it has no tolerance for DC.

Therefore IF there were DC in the AC the electric kettle / pot / hotplate would attempt to draw in infinite current and burn out in a few seconds. As would every appliance in your country.

SeaBis Master will indicate DC in the AC.

Reference Wikipedia, click link:- DC does not create Back EMF (Counter-electromotive force) so there is no resistance to DC current flow. It would attempt to flow infinite current and incinerate.

Corrosion is generated by current caused by water in navigation lights, carbon build up, antenna, normal wear and new equipment.  Keep SeaBis connected then you are warned so can prevent corrosion immediately.

The CAUSE of corrosion can be prevented. The method depends on SeaBis results. Contact us with SeaBis results, type of vessel and engine ON hours and we will assist you. 

There will be times when current causes an other than Normal (green) and corrosion is ongoing.  Contact us and we will assist you. We will support you. Contact us.

The reason we supply a 8 year money back guarantee is we are 100% correct. Corrosive current is eliminated, permanently. That means no corrosive current, permanently.

SeaBis is an electronic device with Instructions that WILL 100% and permanently prevent the CAUSE of corrosive current.

Use the SeaBis System to identify then correct the CAUSE.  So eliminate the current that is the CAUSE. Permanently.
No hull / metal penetration / additional coating, moving parts or plating. The current SOURCE is eliminated.

SeaBis shows the invisible current that CAUSES corrosion in real time.

There is no need to slip the vessel to see the anodes eaten away because SeaBis instantaneously shows a warning light.

When the SeaBis Normal – green light is lit continuously with absolute peace of mind that the vessel is free of the current that will cause corrosion.

SeaBis System completes elimination of ALL CAUSES.

DC (battery) current is the ONLY cause of corrosive current. The MAIN source of corrosive current is the vessels’ own battery bank. SeaBis System eliminates ALL CAUSES, permanently. Even other vessels can have no effect.

Prevent corrosive current then rust and galvanic corrosion are easy to eliminate. Your metal, paint, coatings and anodes will not be destroyed by corrosion.

Your metal will not be dissolved.  Anodes can protect your metal from galvanic corrosion as designed.
SeaBis used with battery clips and moved battery bank to battery bank to eliminate all permanent causes. Permanently installing SeaBis will warn you of intermittent and new causes.

The technical reason:
To be realistic, measurements must be in current, with everything at full power and at applied voltage (12 or 24 volts).  There must be no limit in the measuring device and a current sensitivity of millionths of a amp. That device must have no effect on the circuit to be measured, whatsoever. SeaBis Master complies. Multi meters and probes measure voltage as current, at 1 millionth of an amp at 1 volt (irrespective of battery voltage) so have a error probability of greater than 1,000:1. In addition they alter the circuit under test by at least 500 times. Therefore multi-meters do not comply.

Test lamps are insensitive at 1,000:1

1/2 cell measures voltage so can only deceive you.

and

  • A multi meter on amps actually measures voltage.  It has resulted in death from acid burns caused by the multi meter shorting the battery and it exploding, on fire, hydrochloric acid over you.

Test lamps are one million times insensitive. reference or 1/2 cell measures voltage so both can only deceive you.

Current causes corrosion. SeaBis measures current, accurately and safely. It separates the various types and levels of current.  Therefore you know if your vessel is safe from corrosive current. So SeaBis indicates the degree of risk so you can time your repair. Also SeaBis indicates if there is excessive AC in your DC that can damage your batteries and electronics. SeaBis System eliminates of ALL causes. Permanently.

Ask him how he plates gold onto base ring. The gold is your damp too wet engine / hull and the base (jewelry-ring) is the Earth.

The air around aircraft, in clouds, contains more than the tolerance level of 10% humidity.
Any metal in contact with the Earth, even remotely thru the air, passes current to the Earth so causing corrosion.

Large aircraft are correctly insulated so do not get current corrosion.

SeaBis Master with Instructions completes elimination of ALL CAUSES.

DC (battery) current is the ONLY cause of corrosive current. The MAIN source of corrosive current is the vessels’ own battery bank. ALL CAUSES are eliminated by SeaBis System. Even other vessels can have no effect.

Prevent corrosive current then rust and galvanic corrosion are easy to eliminate. Your metal, paint, coatings and anodes will not be destroyed by corrosion.

Your engine and hull will not be dissolved.  Anodes can protect your metal from galvanic corrosion as designed.

SeaBis may be used with battery clips and moved battery bank to battery bank to eliminate all permanent causes. Intermittent and new causes require SeaBis be permanently installed.

There are 8,400 hours in a year so 200 hours divided 8,400 equals 2.38 percent of corrosion cause remaining.

SeaBis MUST indicate NORMAL on all battery banks excluding engine. Then we can supply our modified solenoid to keep engine corrosive current below 3%.

In commercial use the engine ON hours will exceed 200 per year so full elimination of all causes is essential. We will guide you through, no matter the use.

Larger trucks, planes and some professional vessels are correctly insulated. That will be the result of SeaBis Master and Instructions.
