You can see the letter here: Coltraco Portalevel Testimonial

In their recent testimonial, Khayber Fire and Security Systems WLL details their journey with Coltraco Ultrasonics’ cutting-edge technology, specifically our Portalevel® MAX PLUS and Portasteele® CALCULATOR . While inspecting fire suppression systems, they encountered a common challenge: the absence of standard pressure gauges in FM200 cylinders aboard US Navy vessels Moulthrope and Glen Harris, as well as the UK Navy Ship HMS Lancaster.

However, our revolutionary Portalevel® MAX PLUS proved to be a game-changer, enabling Khayber Fire and Security Systems WLL to accurately estimate the liquid levels of the FM200 agent without the need for traditional pressure gauges. Furthermore, with our Portasteele® CALCULATOR, they seamlessly calculated the actual agent weight, ensuring compliance and safety standards were met with precision.








Some of the most notable reviews from this would be:

  • The Sales & Technical Engineer was impressed by the effectiveness of the Portalevel and Portasteele CALCULATOR.
  • These tools have led to significant cost savings for their operations.
  • Servicing the 500LB cylinders usually requires a team of 4-5 people due to their weight and difficulty to move. However, with the Portalevel, this task has become much easier.
  • Particularly beneficial in cramped spaces like those on the Multhrope, Glen Harris, and HMS Lancaster vessels, where manual dismantling of cylinders is impractical.
  • The Royal Navy has expressed satisfaction with Khayber’s work and has committed to awarding them the next contract.
  • Khayber feels a strong sense of pride in this accomplishment and has thanked us for our assistance in securing the business opportunity.
