The Superior Ultrasonic Hatch Leak Detector

When it comes to transporting cargo overseas, having a cargo hold that is both secure and impenetrable to sea water is essential. The ingress of sea water is one of the largest causes of damage to goods and cargo, which can result in expensive insurance claims and a myriad of problems. This is where our ultrasonic leak detector can help. Before any kind of voyage, a vessel should be comprehensively inspected using our ultrasonic leak detection equipment. This will notify that there are areas which are not completely sealed and will allow water to penetrate and potentially cause damage to your cargo or systems.

How does it work?

Our Hatch Sure ultrasonic leak detector is an accurate and easy to use device for making sure that your vessel is sea worthy and areas that are essential to keep dry are sealed off properly. It is a quick and effective method of ascertaining the integrity of a hatch, seam, or other joint that needs to be sealed. The powerful transmitter is powered by the built in battery and uses 19 ultrasound emitters to produce an omnidirectional sound field. The frequency emitted from the ultrasonic leak detection equipment is 40 kHz (40,000 Hz) and will give an accurate mapping of any gaps, cracks, or faulty seals in the area of the emitter. This is achieved by measuring the return sound energy level, and, therefore, the sound that is transmitted through the gaps. This enables the ultrasonic leak detector to locate the gap in a quick and efficient manner. Key features to note about the ultrasonic hatch leak detector:
