Testing Various Parts For Leaks To Ensure Safety

Testing Various Parts For Leaks To Ensure Safety

Submitted by • April 7, 2014

The biggest problem of the shipping industry is none other than a leak in the body or the hatch covers. A leak can be of any size, big or small, but the consequences are greater than thinkable. In a transport ship, the hatch covers get the most damage and they require checking and testing for leaks. The hatch cover maintenance and watertight integrity testing is one of the most important tasks assigned to the maintenance staff of the ship. As the leaks are usually hidden from plan view, they have to be hunted and dug out to apply the repairs. Unless these holes are found, there is no way water drainage into the cargo holds can be stopped and prevented.
