Our products save defence companies time and money whilst improving safety, compared to the traditional methods. E.g. for watertight integrity: instead of high pressure hose or chalk testing. E.g. for fire safety: instead of manually weighing each cylinder to identify the contents. Specifically for navies, we aim to target the two main causes of vessel loss: sinking (through testing of watertight integrity of NBCW seals and doors) and fire (through testing the fire suppression systems onboard). All products are based on integrity, from design, through to life-time support, and are accurate, reliable and easy to use for any staff. Coltraco ensure their portable equipment is rugged, easy-to-use and at a price that their competitors cannot match. This is because of the company’s founder, Mr. E. C Hunter, a Royal Navy Submariner, who applied his 27 years’ experience at sea to Coltraco’s products. Providing defence solutions for liquid level testing of fire suppression systems, converting fire suppressant agent liquid level to weight, watertight integrity testing, sprinkler flow rate testing, metal thickness, corrosion testing and engine/pump bearing wear and tear.
