It is time to prioritise your airflow control onboard vessels and offshore infrastructure at sea. It has never been more pertinent to test room integrity especially COVID-19 isolation rooms. To help the fight against coronavirus we have developed a tool for the marine sector to inspect, locate and quantify potential vectors for the spread of airborne disease between adjacent rooms, including crew accommodation spaces, passenger areas on cruise vessels, HVAC areas, isolation areas, quarantine corridorsPortascanner® COVID-19.

2. Informing repairs needed to create safe environments for passengers and crew in cruise vessels where negative or positive pressurisation is used

3. By identifying and measuring leak sites, measuring air flow and monitoring air permeability in order to produce traceable reports that offer peace of mind that ventilation equipment is working correctlyAir intakes must be set to ensure that the atmospheric pressure inside the accommodation is greater than that of the external atmosphere. In engine and boiler rooms, ignition sources such as those arising from boiler operations and electrical equipment cannot be avoided (see also Section 4.2.4). It is essential therefore to prevent the entry of flammable gases into such compartments. Residual fuel oils and gas oils may present a flammability hazard (see Section 2.7) and the routine checking of bunker spaces for flammability by tanker and terminal personnel is to be encouraged.
