ABS Type Approved & RINA Accepted Portascanner® WATERTIGHT
The world-leading fully ABS Type Approved & RINA Accepted Portascanner® WATERTIGHT provides a fast and highly accurate method for checking any critical watertight or airtight seal for leak sites, with results in decibel and mathematical linear.
The Portascanner® WATERTIGHT provides a simple method to inspect hatches, ensuring that all leaks can be repaired before port departure. This drastically reduces the chance of cargo damage and increases the safety of vessel and crew whilst complying with regulations:
SOLAS Reg II-1/11.1 states that hatches and watertight seals must be regularly tested: “Where a hose test is not practicable [sic] it may be replaced by [sic] an ultrasonic leak test or an equivalent test. In any case a thorough inspection of the watertight bulkheads shall be carried out.”
Faster, Better & Cheaper
The Portascanner® WATERTIGHT is:
- Faster: designed for ease of use from poorly educated crew up to chief engineer – no need for extensive and expensive training courses, simply read the operating instructions in the kit and away you go
- Better: most mathematically accurate to 0.06 (+/-0.02mm) to identify leak integrity quickly and easily allowing prompt maintenance if required
- Cheaper: never beaten on price guarantee from Coltraco Ultrasonics who are used to serving the world’s leading fleets for 30 years
