Ultrasonic hatch testing approved

01 Jan 2002

Following type-approval of MacGregor?s Sherlog ultrasonic equipment by Lloyd?s Register, the company?s Hatch Cover division has gained a Class Service Supplier certificate from Det Norske Veritas. The certificate grants acceptance for service on tightness testing of hatches with ultrasonic equipment on ships, high speed light craft and mobile offshore units classed by the society. The Sherlog system incorporates an integrated data-logger. Data can be downloaded to a PC/laptop for subsequent use as a periodic survey information source. It can also be forwarded by e-mail so cover leakage data can be reported as required under the International Association of Classification Societies? unified requirements concerning survey and certification. This appears in section Z17 which covers procedural requirements for service suppliers.
