The increasing numbers of transport ships all over the world mean one thing, global trade is increasing incredulously. The demand of goods to be transported from one country to another is the reason why the transport industry or more specifically the shipping transport industry exists. But due to some problems (topping the list the leaks in hatch covers and other parts) the shipping transport industry is under heavy criticism. Business people who are regular customers of these companies need assurance that their goods would not be damaged during the voyages. Although the goods are insured and they get paid for the damages, this may be a good compensation for the cash registers but is never a good thing with the company’s reputation of those business people.

The first step to ensure that customer’s goods are not destroyed through leaks during the shipment process is the intense hatch cover maintenance and watertight integrity testing. Unless the crew knows about the location of the leaks and the type of repairs which would be necessary to apply for stopping them, no corrective action can be taken and the leaks would grow consistently. As leaks continue to emerge and the holes continue to grow bigger, the condition of the ship’s body and the hatch covers starts deteriorating. As the holes continue to grow bigger, larger amounts of water start entering the cargo holds and more damage starts taking place inside.

Leaking water entering the ship not only creates trouble in the cargo holds but it starts spreading to the other components. As the ship has a net of wires running all over to provide power supply to the moving components such as the hatch covers and to the lights, water on the inside can get deeper into the cables. Presence of water in the cable ducts can easily spark a short circuit. It can even trip the breakers in the main switch board or can ruin some machinery or even worse, spark a small flame which can soon go out of control and create a huge fire.

To ensure that the cables are in no danger of any electric problem, the need for cable transit areas watertight testing is also compulsory. Not only is it harmed by water, it can also be harmed by the humidity in the air which never dies out in the oceans and seas. As the cables are completely protected from water and the humidity in the air, there is no chance of any mishap happening due to it. Some ships have been destroyed during their journey when their electric circuit caught fire and spread it all over. Those shipping companies not only had to end up paying a lot of claims for the goods destroyed onboard, they also had to bear a huge loss by repairing the ship or buying a new one.

Competition all over the world is getting tougher every passing day. Shop owners and office bearers feel the pressure to increase their sales to fight the competition and be able to survive in the market. But overall, the main pressure falls on the manufacturers who are required to produce more and with higher quality without increasing their prices. Manufacturers have had to change a lot of their techniques and methods to come up with a formula which would improve the quality of their product without rising the concerning voices of their buyers.

Improving the quality is another task and keeping the prices low is another. However, the manufacturers have been trying their best to keep both these tasks in accordance with each other. A strategy to keep the prices as low as possible has been devised which involves procuring the materials in bulk. Everything from the dry items to liquids being used in the manufacturing processes is procured in bulk. While the dry items are kept away in the huge store cells and racks, the liquids are stored in specifically designed storage tanks and containers fitted with a liquid level indicator. The level indicator for liquids serves many purposes.

In the effort to keep production costs down, the materials are divided according to the targets set for the production lines every day. The amount of materials required are measured on a sheet and distributed to the production lines stating their quota on a daily or weekly basis. This way the production teams also become aware of the quantity they would get and have to complete their targets within those quantities. Measuring the quantities of the materials ensure that there is no over use of ant material and also there are no wastage's of the materials. Since the prices of raw materials affect the price of the finished goods, reducing waste is the first step towards production cost control.

For stricter control over monitoring the use of materials and especially the liquids being used, the ultrasonic level indicator is used to monitor even the last drop of liquid. With the ultrasonic device, the staff can monitor the flow and the daily drop of level in the tanks effectively. Although there are other monitoring devices installed with the tanks and the pipes leading from them, but with this device an accurate and on the spot data can be obtained more easily and accurately.

A transport ship is one of the most unreliable vehicles on this planet. It sails over the seas and oceans and if anything happens to it, the recovery costs are more than ever. But despite the fear of being an unreliable source of travel and transport it is the most widely used vehicle because a leak proof ship tops reliability charts. The only unreliable transport ship is a leaking transport ship. When there are leaks or even a single leak present in a ship, there is no guarantee about its performance. Either the damage could be devastating or there can be no damage at all. It changes to a game of chance and coincidences because no one assures the safety of the goods or the crew on it.

Hatch covers are the most affected from leaks out of all the other parts if a transport ship. As they are used every time goods are loaded or unloaded in the cargo holds, they receive a very rough treatment during these phases. The damaging blows to the hatch covers rip off the paint and create dents in them especially around the borders. Hence without proper hatch cover maintenance and watertight integrity testing the leaks would never cease and water will always have an opening to get inside without invitation. A ship is a vehicle that is not built to store water or have it present inside it, but it is a vehicle which is clearly meant to block out water.

Leaking hatch covers are the biggest loss for a transport ship owning company. The cargo gets completely destroyed causing the shipping company to face losses worth millions and even billions. The profits earned in an entire year are eaten away by the loss of a single time if the ship encounters an accident. Apart from the loss encountered by a ship due to leaking hatch covers, the ship also faces a huge threat regarding safety if its doors and other compartments are leaking. The crew and the ship’s electric wiring are at a great risk of getting wet from the leaks in the compartments. A ship either transport or luxury, is engineered to remain stable on the surface of water. But if water is present inside the ship’s compartment, the stability can be greatly jeopardized. Hence we must agree to the fact that as much as we emphasize on the hatch cover testing, the watertight compartment doors testing is also of equal importance.

One of the most important but least discussed is managing the liquids in a factory. Liquids are one of the most important raw materials used in factories these days. The liquids are used in many different stages of the production process and without using these necessary liquids, the production may never give desired results. To make sure the mass production never stops in the production lines, all the raw materials are procured in bulk and stored in the huge storage areas in the factory. It is easy to store the dry items in the storage areas, where they are packed in plastic only to be removed when they are needed for use. But storing the liquids is where the engineers are put to test.

One of the most useful components for liquids is the liquid level indicator which is not only a great way to measure, but also to keep track of many other processes regarding liquid use. Here are some of the basic uses of a liquid level indicator in a factory.

Measure liquids
Measuring liquids is one of the most difficult tasks in a factory. Since there are a variety of liquids to be used, they are all contained in different containers. Hence a greater space for liquid storage is required. As the factory needs the liquids to be present in huge quantity at all times, the storage containers are huge and are able to contain thousands of liquids. Using the liquid level indicator, these huge containers are measured because it is impossible to take a peek inside.

Measure flow

The huge containers are in constant use. Maintaining the flow of liquids in such a huge quantity is not an easy task. A minor leak can result in a huge disaster. Hence the pressure of the liquid flow is also determined by the change in the level on the level indicator for liquids. For more precise and accurate measurement the ultrasonic level indicator is used. A sudden drop clearly indicates a leak somewhere or an unnatural use of liquids at some point. It can be immediately investigated. No change in the liquid level means a blockage; hence it can also be taken under consideration after having a look at the level indicator.

Price control

Keeping the cost under control is very important. By reading the levels regularly, it can be assured that the liquids are being used as per plan and there is nothing to be worried about regarding excess use of resources and a price increase.

One of the biggest industries present today and constantly growing by leaps and bounds every single day is none other than the textile industry. The constant upgrade in the fashion world is not only a driving factor of this great industry that has no end, but is also the changes in the weather ensure that the textile industry never ceases to work. Although a designer creates a few dresses to let the models wear and walk the ramp, but the orders received against them can easily make a beggar have a larger bank account by supplying all the orders. Hence the textile factories are never put to rest instead they are receiving more orders per day.

Have you ever wondered how a garment that you so lovingly adorn is made? The process starts from the moment the cotton is picked up from the fields and brought to the spinning mills where they are woven together to form a thread. From theses threads the weaving machine then creates rolls of cloth which are then sent to the dyeing department to bring out the lively colors in them. The process in the dyeing department is not only complex, but it is also very time executed so that there is no harm to the cloth. By using the liquid level indicator an appropriate amount of water is added to the huge mixer.

The amount of water needed to be added in the mixer is found out by weighing the entire rolls of cloth. The weight of the cloth makes the staff determine how much water is needed for the cloth to be completely dipped in. If there isn’t enough water for the cloth to be dipped in, the cloth present outside can remain uncolored or may not get enough color on it. This can be a disaster and the entire roll would be a waste.

Adding color to the water is an art in itself. Since a combination of different colors is required to make a new color, the dyeing master (as known popularly) determines how much a color should be added in to the mixer to make the desired effect. This complex task is accomplished by using the ultrasonic level indicator which not only provides pinpoint accuracy of the water present in the mixer, but it also points out every gram of the colors added to the mixer. At first the mixer is turned on only containing the water and the dyes to let it spread and mix with every molecule of the water. Now it is time to dip the cloth and turn on the mixer once again and let the cloth be dyed in the most beautiful color ever.

Transport ships are the biggest need of the modern age. The global trade today is all a reality because of these ships which have made it possible to carry tons of weight at the same time and make successful deliveries. Somehow these ships suffer a bad omen which is none other than rust, leaks and the frequent storms they have to face at sea. However, these things can’t be avoided but with the frequent hatch cover maintenance and watertight integrity testing, the damage caused to the goods by these bad omens can be reduced.

Using the ultrasonic hatch cover tester, the ship’s crew can unearth a lot of holes and leaks in the ships hatch covers and other parts too. These leaks and holes in the hatch covers and different parts are the only way where water can find a way to get in. Using the ultrasonic hatch cover tester is easy and anyone can use it successfully by reading the user manual or watching a person do it once. Finding the leaks is the first step to make a ship leak proof and weather proof.

Apart from testing the tightness of the hatch covers and other moving parts of the ship, the cable transit areas are also worth testing for the tightness. Since the cables are spread all over the ship’s structure, if water enters these cables there is a huge risk of short circuit which could result in loss of power or even an explosion. Anything unfortunate that happens in a ship during a voyage could result in a huge loss. Hence the need for the ultrasonic cable transit areas watertight testing cannot be out ruled even if the deadline is crossing its limit. What would you do with a stranded ship weighing thousands of tons and carrying an extra thousand tons in the middle of the ocean?

Pulling it to the dock would cost more than it would have cost to have the repairs done in time. Some of the ship owners have had the nerve of delaying their test even when the signs for tests and a repair were obvious. The ship owners have had to not only pay a lot of money for the pulling of the ship to the dock, but they also have had to pay a lot of money for the repairs and the damage done to their name in the corporate world because they have not only had to miss the deadline, but also got a bda name for owning a ship that broke down.

One of the growing industries all over the world is the bottling industry of mineral water. As the amount of drinkable water is becoming lesser every day, the people need the water to keep them healthy and alive. The need for water is undeniable and no living thing can stay alive without it. The mineral water bottling industry is now not only present in the United States, but it is present in every country of the world and is growing tremendously. Mineral water bottling plants are growing like mushrooms all over the planet and it seems to be the most profitable business in the current times and a promising business for the future as well. But managing a mineral water bottling plant is not as easy as it seems and the profit earned through it is not easy money. Let’s take a sneak peek into the water bottling industry and see how they manage to do it.

The first step begins with the storage of ordinary tap water in a huge storage tank. The storage tank is equipped with a liquid level indicatorhttp://www.coltraco.com/portalevel/ to let the staff learn about the actual amount of water present in the storage tank. After the water has been filled to the maximum, the inlet of water is turned off and a sample is taken out of the storage tank through a small tap at the bottom. The sample is sent to a laboratory where it is tested and the number of contamination and the type of bacteria are determined. Reading the report generated by the lab, the required treatment is planned and the processing begins.

Beginning the processing treatment, the water is passed through the first set of filters. This filter removes dust from the water and makes the water become clearer. After the water has gone through the first set of filters, it is stored in another water tank and the new level of water is again measured on the liquid level indicator. There is a positive change in the liquid level when measured again because when a large number of contamination have been removed, the water level comes down.

Now the water is let out of this measuring storage tank, passed through a lot more filters of different kinds which also help to kill the smaller type of bacteria and then when the water is nearly in the pure form, it is again accumulated in a tank and chlorine is added to kill all the bacteria that may have been still present in it. Finally the water is passed through a filter which soaks all the chlorine in it and using the ultrasonic level indicator to maintain the right level of liquid in bottle, the water is filled in the bottles and ready to be shipped.

Have you ever noticed which ever soft drink bottle or can you pick up has exactly the same amount of liquid inside it? This was impossible to accomplish until the bottling plant finally made use of the ultrasonic level indicator. This amazing device provides pin point accuracy which means that even if a drop is added more, it points out the difference and lets the staff know about it. However, we all know that a drop more is of no concern but to manage the quality and standard, it is important to keep an eye on every drop of liquid.

The bottling industry or the soft drink industry is one of the biggest industries all over the world. In fact, it may be the biggest because there are more cans and bottles ready to be sold in the freezers than the entire human population all over the globe. And the story doesn’t end there, all of the sold cans and bottles are replaced the very next day so the population of these fizzy drinks never falls short. But keeping a huge supply available at all times is no child’s play. It is one of the toughest jobs on this planet.

To make the huge supply a possibility without fail, the factories are on their heels all day long. The most important department in this scenario is the storage or the store department of the factories. It is the one department which manages the entire availability of the necessary ingredients so that the production lines never fail to meet their targets. Keeping a huge stock of the powdered and solid ingredients along with the liquid means that the department has to make room for everything even if there isn’t enough place. Managing all this stock can easily make anyone cry out.

All the materials are added in a single huge container which is a mixer and a pressure maker at the same time. The main task to worry about is adding enough ingredients to not disrupt the taste of the drink. If anything is added more or less, the taste would differ greatly because everything is added in bulk quantity in the gigantic container. The main helping tool in this process is the liquid level indicator which keeps the staff informed about the amount of the liquids that have been added and not to mention even about the powdered items too.

A lot of business people eye the shipping industry with envy because of the huge profits it reaps. While there is no denying to the fact that a shipping company has one of the biggest earnings a month any business could have, there are many problems which are faced constantly by it. The first and the biggest problem faced by it is the rust. Rust is a problem which can never be wiped out unless a ship starts getting built of plastic and that is certainly never going to happen. Rust appears easily on the ship’s different parts and it eats away the thick layer of the metal and creates a hole or many holes in it.

There is no way to keep rust from appearing on a ship’s body, but there are ways to repair the holes once they have appeared. The most affected part of the ship is the hatch covers and it is important to ensure hatch cover maintenance and watertight integrity testing on a regular basis. This testing provides information about the location of holes. Knowing where the holes have appeared helps in creating a strategy to implement the repair work. Since applying the repairs to a massive sized ship is not a day’s work, the management has to schedule the right time for sending the ship to the workshop.

A lot of shipments have been destroyed by water during the voyages. It happens when the holes get big enough to let the water flow inside without control. As the water starts entering the cargo holds it starts wetting the goods and then there is no limit to the damages that can be done by it. Apart from damaging the goods, presence of water inside a ship can be the most dangerous thing. Since there are heavy cables all around the ship like a net controlling and providing electricity to the different components and areas of the ship, when water enters the ship’s body it also gets inside the cable transit areas.

Presence of water inside the cable transit areas means there is a possibility of an electric short circuit. Hence there is no denying to the importance of cable transit areas watertight testing. This test can make the crew aware of the weaker areas of the cable transit paths and they can learn about the locations from where water can enter. Applying the repairs to these cable transit areas is not a huge task and can be done by the maintenance staff of the ship. It can be even done while the ship is sailing so the test can be easily conducted even when the voyage has started.
