Fire Safety & Protection

fire safetyOver the years, Coltraco Limited has become increasingly popular and well known within the Fire Safety & Protection world. This is primarily as a result of our Portalevel, Ultrasonic Liquid Level Indicator unit. Before Ultrasonic Liquid Level Indicators were created, the only way to accurately check cylinder content was to use either Radioactive Level Indicators or to weigh cylinders by hand.

Over the last 10 years, a huge volume of legislation has been introduced, regarding the storage, use, transportation & disposal of Radioactive Level Indicating Devices. This has resulted in huge additional costs and complications for the users of this equipment making them impractical to use.

Weighing Cylinders also takes a huge amount of time to significantly more man power is required in order to carry out and complete cylinder content verification. Testing with Ultrasonic Level Indicators only requires one man to operate the equipment, the cylinders can remain in their brackets, which both saves huge amounts of time and reduces the potential risk to the local environment.

The above factors, combined with the unrivalled quality of the Portalevel, have resulted with units operating throughout the world. Indeed the Portalevel’s credentials back up this success; proven accurate to +/-1.5mm by numerous different organizations, proven to save 75% of the time to complete testing when compared to weighing cylinders, it is the only Liquid Level Indicator to achieve full Classification Society Approval and there is currently over 11,000 units in operation worldwide.

This has strengthened the Portalevel’s accolade as being the must have tool for all Fire Protection companies.

Marine

mirine The Commercial Shipping market has always been the focus for Coltraco Limited and the equipment that we design. When the company was founded, many of the first generation models of our equipment was initially designed in conjunction with leading vessel operators, to fulfil requirements that were not yet catered for in the global market place.

Our Product range is very much based around the requirements of Shipping and Ship management companies, marine surveyors, port authorities and marine servicing companies. Our customers include Ship Owners, Managers & Operators, Navies, Marine Surveyors, Port Authorities, Towage & Salvage Operators, Shipyards and Marine Service Stations.

The principle aim of all the equipment designed and manufactured by Coltraco Limited is to provide an accurate and efficient method of add to the safety of Crew, Vessel & Cargo. We were the first company in the world to invent non-invasive ultrasonic methods of checking the watertight integrity of any seal and marine CO2 system liquid level indication, the latter principally used in checking cylinder content for fire suppression systems.

Over the years and inspired by the requests we receive from our customers, we have diversified and developed a Second Product Line of items that we do not manufacture, but are commonly required on a day to day basis. For this equipment we work with many of the world’s leading OEM’s in their specific fields, to supply equipment that is only of the highest quality and reflects the quality of equipment manufactured by Coltraco. Our principal marine product lines are :

  • Tech Group 1 – Two fixed ultrasonic contents monitoring systems and a range of 7 Portalevel™ model types of portable liquid level indicators
  • Tech Group 2 – Permascanner™ semi-fixed ultrasonic watertight integrity monitoring systems and Portascanner™ portable watertight integrity test indicators
  • Tech Group 3 – Portable Portagauge™ 3 & 4 ultrasonic thickness gauges & portable Portatsonic™ ultrasonic flow meters

The systems that we manufacture are some of the most pioneering and capable in ultrasonic’s including :

  • Permalevel™ Multiplex – capable of contents monitoring up to 700 cylinders simultaneously 24/7 and
  • Permascanner™ Dynamic – capable of monitoring a vessels hatch-covers watertight integrity for up to 10 days voyage time 24/7

Throughout our 20 year history, we have retained our position of being leaders in our field within the Marine industry and we continue to develop as a company to maintain this position.

Defence

defenceThroughout the history of Coltraco Limited, we have had extensive and continuous experience in working with and supplying numerous Government Organizations & Defence forces around the globe, particularly Naval Forces and Coast Guard’s.

Our equipment is basically designed to provide Defence, and especially Naval forces, with an effective and low cost in-house capability that would otherwise too expensive and impractical to maintain in house. These capabilities are focused upon Safety & Survey applications and deal with some incredibly important areas such as the maintenance of watertight & air tight seals and fire suppression systems surveying.

Monitoring Naval vessel and Fleet Auxilliary vessel Halon 1301, typically using Portalevel™ and Permalevel™ to monitor contents of FM-Halon, FM-200™ , CO2 & NOVEC™ 1230 systems

Throughout our history we have been on numerous trials all around the world to demonstrate our equipment to various armed forces and to show how are equipment works, the ease a user can be trained to use our equipment and the hugely cost effective benefits they can bring to the maintenance and safety aspects of an organisation. Our equipment has never failed to pass a Trial and we have many units currently in operation in Naval and Defence Organizations around the globe.

One specific example of these benefits is found with our Portascanner™ II, an Ultrasonic Watertight Integrity Tester, a unit capable of checking any watertight or airtight seal for any areas where the seal is broken. This equipment is especially popular with Naval forces for checking the numerous watertight compartment doors on a ship or submarine, holds hatches, cable transit areas and watertight flanges on board. In addition to this, the Portascanner™ II can be used to check the vital NBC (Nuclear Biological and Chemical warfare) and CW (Chemical Warfare) seals to ensure they are secure.

We are very familiar with the complex nature of working with Defence forces and the length of time a Project can take to develop. We are always keen to enter into new Challenges with defence forces and happy to travel out the local country to carry out demonstrations whenever we are requested.
