Ultrasonic Hatch Cover Testing

 

As water ingress through hatch covers is a main cause of damages to the cargo resulting into claims against insurance companies and P & I Clubs, it is in the interest of ship owners, managers and insurers to guarantee the cargo hold.

 

Unlike hose testing, ultrasonic hatch cover testing

  • is compliant with port and harbor environment management plans as it does not pollute the marine environment
  • can locate holes and tears in hatch seals with pinpoint accuracy
  • causes no damage to cargo
  • can be conducted in sub-zero temperatures
  • does not interfere with other crew activities
