Sea water ingress is one of the major sources of damage to cargo which often results in expensive insurance claims. Cygnus have designed an ultrasonic hatch leak detector which is used to perform a quick and effective evaluation of cargo hold hatch covers and door seals to determine water leaks and weather tightness. The system comprises of 2 parts: 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 and; a receiver which 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. ABS type approved and accepted by P & I clubs.
