Ultrasonic Tightness Testing

One of the main causes for concern in the shipping and other related industries is damage that sea water can cause to a ship’s cargo, often resulting in high-cost insurance claims for shipping companies.  Cygnus Hatch Sure ultrasonic leak detector provides a fast and effective method of evaluating and testing hatch seals and doors for leaks and sealing against weather conditions to cut down on the risk of such situations.

In addition to marine vessels, Cygnus Hatch Sure can be used for tightness testing of any closing appliances in many industries, such as testing seals in watertight doors, storage containers and transportation vehicles.

Applications benefiting from leak detection equipment:

  • Test the weather tightness of cargo hatch covers on bulk carriers
  • Test seals in cargo access areas, such as bow, side and stern doors or any opening that needs to be sealed
  • Watertight integrity testing, such as tests on watertight doors (WTDs)
  • Tightness testing of any closing appliances or compartments
