Ultrasonic Hatch Cover Tester

Ultrasonic Non-Destructive Testing Equipment

With the majority of damage to cargo being caused as a result of seawater ingress, it’s worth protecting yourself, and avoiding costly insurance claims, by using the right equipment. Our ultrasonic hatch leak detector tests for potential water leaks and the weather tightness of cargo hatch covers and doors. Consisting of a battery powered transmitter and comprised of 19 ultrasound emitters (40 kHz), our Cygnus Hatch Sure emitters are arranged to produce an omnidirectional sound field. This is then uniformly distributed throughout the cargo hold, with the sound energy level displayed by the receiver part of the system, identifying the location of leaks efficiently and with precision. Features of our Cygnus Hatch Sure include the following and more:

  • Type approved and accepted by P & I clubs
  • Lightweight (3.8 kg) – suitable to be hand-carried onto aircraft
  • Digital calibration controls
  • Open Hatch (OH) value and sound level in Decibels (dB) are simultaneously displayed
  • Powerful and robust transmitter
  • Easy transportation in a rucksack-style carry case
