Ultrasonic Tightness Testing

A principal causes for concern in the shipping sector is the potential damage that sea water can cause to a ship’s cargo – that often results in high-cost insurance claims for shipping companies. Cygnus Hatch Sure ultrasonic leak detector seeks to address this issue by providing a fast and effective method of evaluating and testing hatch seals and doors for leaks and sealing against weather conditions.

As well as marine vessels, Cygnus Hatch Sure can also 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
  • Watertight integrity testing, such as tests on watertight doors (WTDs)
  • Test seals in cargo access areas, such as bow, side and stern doors or any opening that needs to be sealed
  • Tightness testing of closing appliances or compartments.
