How to Operate Portascanner® Watertight?

If you are facing any difficulty in usage of ultrasonic hatch cover tester, this will help.

  • Connect the Rod and Headphones to the Receiver and place the Generator into the compartment to be tested.
  • Fix the Generator by the magnet to any metallic surface not far from the seal being inspected.
  • Switch the Generator ‘Onʼ and all the readings will dramatically increase.
  • Leaving the cover of the seal being tested open and check around the seal to ensure a strong signal is being received at all points.
  • The compartment is then closed and the inspection of the seal begins.
  • If there is a leak or area of weak seal compression readings will increase.
  • By moving the Sensor to where the signal is strongest, the operator can identify the exact location and extent of any leak site and steps can be taken to fix this issue.
