The traditional means of testing CO2 cylinders is to shut-down, dismantle, weigh and re-install them –a time consuming and dangerous task. It takes a 2-man team a minimum of 15 minutes to do this. A ship may have 600 cylinders.
Using Portalevel™ means a service technician can test for cylinder contents in 15 seconds per cylinder whilst the cylinder stays in position.
Addressing these two main causes of vessel loss are critical, especially when all owners and managers are seeking to reduce risk, cut costs and surge on safety.
Coltraco Ultrasonics also won the Seatrade Cruise Award “Supplier of the Year 2017” for their supply of the Portalevel® MAX Marine to Carnival Cruises. Carnival Cruises chose to protect their fleet by improving fire safety. Using ultrasonic technology - to pinpoint the ultrasonic liquid level indicator of suppressant agent in the cylinders of the extinguishing system- testing is quicker and easier. Portalevel® MAX Marine enables its users to go above and beyond minimal regulations compliance e.g. IMO SOLAS FSS Code.
