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

P/N: 3107505-GAS

The Portalevel® MAX PLUS is an all-new liquid level indicator with three extended calibration features and a display that will indicate if the sensor is in the GAS or LIQUID phase of a fire suppression cylinder. This portable and battery powered, liquid level indicator designed to non-invasively, accurately, and reliably measure the level of fire suppression agent contained within a cylinder. The UL-Approved Portalevel® MAX PLUS is suitable for CO2, most Liquified Clean Agents and Halons.

The Portagauge® 5 is a multiple echo ultrasonic thickness gauge for measuring thicknesses of various metals and hard plastics, which ignores any coating up to 20mm in thickness.

P/N: 2099382-5

The Portascanner® 520 is an ultrasonic room integrity testing tool, allowing you to locate even minor leak sites quickly, easily, and non-destructively. The perfect tool for ensuring and maintaining airtight integrity. 

P/N: 509004-520

The most accurate and fast acting constants loss monitoring system of its kind. Capable of detecting a loss of agent mass to within 1% in Inert gas, CO2 and Clean Agent systems, and in addition to weigh loss, will provide accurate percentage pressure loss of Inert gas systems associated with agent contents leakage.

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

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


  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.

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.


  • 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.

Portascanner® AIRTIGHT 520

  • Handheld Ultrasonic non-disruptive room integrity & leak detection technology
  • Data Centres, Critical Infrastructure such as Command Centres, Research Laboratories, Operating Theatres, Clean Rooms, and many other spaces have to be particle free
  • Testing for airtightness can now be completed faster, better and more efficiently, and therefore cheaper, with the Portascanner Airtight 520
  • Air leaks with a diameter as small as 0.5mm can now be detected and quickly located with the Portascanner® AIRTIGHT 520 to ensure your data centres are airtight.
