Class Instrumentation CARGO-SAFE Ultrasonic Hatch Cover Tester
Ultrasonic structural integrity meter to establish ingress of water through leaking covers and watertight doors.
The ingress of water through leaking hatch covers is the main cause of damage to cargo. It is in the interest of ship owners, managers and insurers to guarantee the cargo hold are watertight, as damaged cargo caused by water leaking through hatch covers often results in large claims against insurance companies and P&I clubs.
CARGO-SAFE™ is an ABS Type Approved hatch cover tester. The CARGO-SAFE™ UT tester provides a quick and simple method of establishing weather tightness of hatch covers, bow, stern and side doors, but unlike hose testing, has no negative side effects on the port or harbour environment and can be performed in sub-zero temperatures.
