Watertight Door Testing

In the event of a major shipping incident, such as collisions, watertight doors are critical to the ship’s safety infrastructure – as they work to block and contain ingress of water. Ensuring that these watertight doors, such as bulkhead and stern doors, are fully functional it is important to carry out regular watertightness inspections.

Many shipping industry experts prefer watertight ultrasonic testing for evaluating the sealing of watertight doors on ships – as it is more effective, reliable and environmentally friendly compared to traditional chalk and hose testing.

The Cygnus Hatch Sure watertight door testing system provides a quick and accurate method of testing and can be used for watertight integrity testing on any closing appliances or compartments of any structures, such as offshore oil and gas platforms and transportation vehicles.
