Leak detector for tightness testing
Cygnus Hatch Sure Ultrasonic Hatch Leak Detector
Sea water ingress is one of the major sources of damage to cargo resulting in expensive insurance claims. Cygnus Hatch Sure provides a quick and effective method of evaluating hatch seals.
The system consists of a battery powered transmitter containing 19 ultrasound emitters (40 kHz). The emitters are arranged to produce an omni-directional sound field, uniformly distributed throughout the cargo hold.
The receiver part of the system displays the sound energy level that passes through gaps in the enclosed cargo hold to enable the location of leaks to be quickly and accurately identified.
