Servicing over 9000 vessels globally, Coltraco is delighted to introduce 7th generation of Portamarine® to the market in order to meet the need of users in advance level. Numerous treatments and ways are there to deal with securing CO2 & Marine CO2 Systems in shipping system. Though this system is a compulsion in order to be used as fire extinguisher yet it has to be specially taken care of. Carelessness towards Marine CO2 system can be as lethal as to cause abrupt deaths due to suffocation. Moreover, it is considered to be the last option for fire extinguishing on the boat. CO2 Systems installed at ships can only be maintained and operated by the people who are specified for it.

Apparently, cylinders used for CO2 are perfect to carry them but unexpected leakage can be fatal and unbearable for the people. This leakage may be caused in regards to unknown corrosion of metal or element forming the cylinders. In order to be secured all the way long, these cylinders should be expected with Portamarine® which is considered to be an efficient ultrasonic thickness gauge tool.

Testing thickness for used single skinned containers is not only necessary but it should be done on a regular basis. Corrosion inside can make the walls become thinner without anyone knowing it. Thin walls of a container often break or crack and the leak is formed which not only causes loss of the agent inside, but it can also do great harm if the agent is sensitive, which in most cases it really is. Hence it should be checked and if the container is being damaged from inside, it should be replaced at the earliest to avoid any serious loss.

Coltraco’s Portagauge 3rd generation device is capable to measure the thickness of the single skinned containers without the need to be actually inside it. Using the ultrasonic technology it can sense thickness and identify the weak point when it comes across it. Using the simple technique to place the transducer and move it from one point to another in a sequence would let you know where the weak point is. The Portagauge 3rd generation device comes at an extremely down to earth price and has life time technical support. The handheld device is measured at:

Height: 140 mm (6.10 inches)
Width: 80 mm (3.74 inches)
Depth: 30 mm (1.77 inches)
Weight: 350 grams (12.35 ounces)
