Portagas® is a world’s first technology for non-invasive, non-destructive monitoring of pressurised, inert gas systems.

It is a unique and innovative solution designed to monitor the pressure of pressurized, non-liquefied inert gases and compressed gas cylinders, including Inergen®, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Propane, Methane, Chlorine, Ammonia, Hydrogen, and CO2.

Utilizing sophisticated signal processing and acoustic technology to detect even minor fluctuations in internal cylinder pressure, with precision below the 5% required by regulations and by detecting marginal changes in the internal cylinder pressure with precision well below 5% demanded by the regulations, making it a valuable tool for ensuring safety and compliance.

The Portasteele® CALCULATOR is the perfect partner to any of Coltraco Ultrasonics’ liquid level detectors. It allows you to convert your measured liquid level to an agent weight, precisely and accurately. These readings can then be saved and exported for future reference and traceability. 

Used in partnership with the Portalevel® Ultrasonic Level Indicator range 

P/N: CALC-007

The Portasonic® PRO is a handheld tablet-based ultrasonic clamp-on flow meter with built-in pressure prediction software for calculating internal pipe pressure from measured flow rates. It combines the functionality of the non-invasive flow measurement of the Portasonic® with the pressure prediction capability of the Portasonic® CALCULATOR, to form the first instrument capable of predicting the internal pressure within pipes, using non-invasive, externally measured flow sensors.

Customers include China Telecommunication Guangzhou, National Bank of China (Beijing), P2ML and an Oxygen Reduction System in a UK Data Centre. High value server rooms cannot afford the cost or downtime as a result of fire or damage to the facilities.

 

The main causes of fire in data centres are from servers overheating and electrical faults. That is why liquified gaseous fire extinguishing systems, such as FM-200® and Novec™ 1230, are needed to protect their critical infrastructure.

  1. Bao Cloud Centre, China – One of the largest data centres in China wanted to protect their people and facilities, in September 2018. Bao Cloud contacted Coltraco Ultrasonics to protect their facility and ensure that their FM200 systems are always full. Coltraco Ultrasonic’s successfully completed installation of the Permalevel® MULTIPLEX with monitoring points on 12 FM-200® cylinders https://coltraco.com/chinese-data-bao-cloud-centre-chooses-to-protect-critical-assets-from-fire-risk/

 

  1. Oxygen Reduction System, UK – Buildings and enclosed spaces must be sufficiently airtight to ensure that, in the event of a fire, the building or room can contain the gaseous agent long enough to ensure that the fire is completely extinguished, and that there is no risk of oxygen infiltration re-igniting the fire. In a Data Centre in the UK several areas of a Server Room were tested with an ultrasonic room integrity tester where leakage was probable. The ultrasonic room integrity tester identified the main source of leaks for the room, the doors, where full readings were clearly detected. Multiple air vents in the room were also improperly sealed and some leakage was found into the external room. Cable penetrations leading to the area outside the Server Room were also found to be leaking. https://coltraco.com/case-study-oxygen-reduction-system-data-centre

Portalevel® MAX PLUS

  • The most advanced non-invasive liquid level indicator for fire suppression cylinders
  • UL and ABS Approved, accurate to +/- 1.5mm
  • Designed for servicing of fire suppression systems such as CO2, FM-200®, Novec™1230, FE-13™, FE-25™, Halons and many more liquified gaseous agents.
  • Leave manual calculations of servicing fire suppression systems in the past. Convert liquid height to agent mass and export reports to customers as a cost and time effective maintenance solution by pairing the Portalevel® MAX with the Portasteele® CALCULATOR.

PermaMASS® FEATHERWEIGHT

  • An advanced continuous monitoring system designed for total flood fire suppression systems in seamless cylinders.
  • World’s first dedicated 3-gas system that continually monitors any loss of agent quantity due to leakage in high-pressure seamless CO2 cylinders, liquified clean agents (NOVEC™1230, FM-200®) with Nitrogen, and non-liquified clean agents such as Inergen™.
  • No system disruption during maintenance periods. The implementation of a unique locking system allows the sensors to be removed without disconnecting the cylinders.
