Sherlog MATE Function Kit for Hatchcovers Tightness Testing

Kozen use a totally new concept for hatch cover tightness testing.

For many years, leaking hatch covers have been vehicles for commercial disasters and even today claims for wet damaged cargo as resulting from leaking hatch covers remain one of the biggest concerns for ship owners, ship managers, cargo interests and their insurers. Owners, P&I Clubs and insurers are faced with several hundred million dollars of claims for wetting damage to cargo on a yearly basis, not counting consequences of wetting damage related problems such as delays, disruption of schedules and investigations.

Now ultrasonic tightness testing performed by Kozen can dramatically improve the n° 1 cause for claims each year – simply, accurately and reliably!

It has been proven that ultrasonic tightness testing of hatch covers with the SDT Sherlog can dramatically reduce exposure to claims filed against ships resulting from wet damaged cargo simply, accurately and reliably!

The Sherlog MATE kit includes the SDT200 receiver which is a high quality ultrasonic receiver which allows to easily identify areas where compression is affected and evaluate measurements which are shown digitally on the LCD display.

CARGO-SAFE™ Ultrasonic Hatch Cover Tester

Kozen is conscious of that the ingress of water through leaking hatch covers is a main cause of damage to cargo. It is in the interest of ship owners, managers and insurers to guarantee the cargo hold is watertight, as damaged cargo caused by water leaking through hatch covers often results in large claims against insurance companies and P&I clubs.

CARGO-SAFE™ is an ABS Type Approved hatch cover tester. The CARGO-SAFE™ UT tester in use of Kozen provides a quick and simple method of establishing weather tightness of hatch covers, bow, stern and side doors, but unlike hose testing, has no negative side effects on the port or harbour environment and can be performed in sub-zero temperatures.
