Another first of its kind!
Our Director of Sales, George Hunter shares an exciting update about our Portascanner® WATERTIGHT
“Coltraco Ultrasonics have long been leaders in providing equipment for identifying critical leak sites in a variety of watertight & airtight seals. We have been particularly successful in using this equipment for testing bulk carrier hatch covers, watertight doors and cable transit areas in numerous different environments.”
Get ahead of changing regulations IACS Z28
Coming into effect later in 2021, IACS Z28 will require that all Offshore structures must keep a log of all the Multiple Cable Transits in the structure, referred to as a ‘Cable Transit Seal System Register’.
- This must include information on each cable transit installed, the certification and instruction, drawings and other relevant information from the manufacturer on the Seal itself.
- This must also include inspection information and any details of any subsequent repair or modification made to the MCT.
Time to choose world-leading cable transit seal inspection
The Portascanner® WATERTIGHT has been used for years as a method of inspecting multiple cable transits. Using ultrasonic technology, you can identify the exact location and severity of any leaks in airtight or watertight seals. This is far more efficient compared to high pressure air or water tests, is more accurate and cheaper. It is ABS Approved, easy to use for all crew members alike and the most mathematically accurate of its kind.
Soon Coltraco Ultrasonics will be launching a variant of the Portascanner® which can be stationed onboard, and used as a digital storage and inspection platform, allowing vessels to comply with Z28.
This is the first and only unit of its type globally and will be launching soon!
