Hatch covers failing to do their job account for 40% of cargo being damaged due to water ingress and you’re almost guaranteeing your schedules coming to a grinding halt with yet another unscheduled condition survey on your ship.

Over $46.9m of cargo is damaged every year and hatch covers are the most frequent cause of vessels being selected for an unscheduled condition survey by the Classification Societies surveyors.

Ultrasonic testing is simple in its operation and is by far the most accurate way to ensure your hatches are functioning correctly. The condition inspection covers the structural parts of the coamings and hatch covers as well as examining the closing, sealing and securing devices.

Hatchtite™ is the most effective hatch test method available, enabling you to detect the exact location of cargo hatch leaks early on. Using the most powerful ultrasonic transmitter on the market at 1000 times more powerful than other transmitters, just one crew member can test the hatches using the hand-held detector to find leaks instantly – all whilst in transit.

No more large insurance claims and no dents in your port turnaround times – either scheduled for hatch tests or unscheduled for surveys.
