PERMASCANNER® DYNAMIC is our semi-fixed ultrasonic watertight integrity test indicating system for the dynamic testing of hatch covers, holds, bulkheads, cable transits and watertight doors and compartments at sea. Derived from its sister product the Portascanner®, Permascanner™ Dynamic is designed to quickly identify leaksites in their extent and precise location, whilst at sea.
Permascanner® Dynamic allows a pattern of readings to be recorded against varying sea states, enabling a true picture of the seal integrity to be recorded over time.
The device will enables Marine Superintendants, Barge Supervisors or OIMs to embody its highly accurate readings into an enhanced on board safety procedure.
Continuous Operation- 10 day/3000NM continuous monitoring of hatch cover seals
Enhance Risk Management -through integration with performance standard procedures for vessel, cargo & safety of Life at Sea
Instant Notification -with the use of alarms to alert Officers & Crew that all hatch covers are closed & sealed at all times
High Accuracy -identifies leaks as small as 0.06 mm ± 0.02 mm
Magnetically Mounted Base - means no fuss in setup as generator can be easily attached to the hold.
“Portascanner is now mandated for all our rigs to have Portascanner in use aboard.”
“It is part of our performance standard now.”
“Our standard is to check watertight integrity onboard every 3 months … but we may reduce this to 1 month now.”
SHIPPING Key application is to test the watertight and weather-tight doors and especially vessels’ hatch-covers.
OIL & GAS OFFSHORE Portascanner® is becoming an essential component of some offshore companies safety regimes, setting the standard for the monitoring of mechanical and hydraulically actuated watertight doors.
DEFENCE In Defence - Portascanner® is in service as NATO Stock No. 6625-99-257-8336, testing watertight compartments, but also testing the watertight integrity of cable transits.
