Tritex NDT Sponsor IIMS Inland Waterways Training Event
Tritex NDT were pleased to be invited to sponsor the International Institute of Marine Surveyors first Inland Waterways Training Event. The program was hosted by P & S Marine at their boatyard in Watford and there was a large attendance proving this was a very popular event. The program included a practical welding session as well as surveying a narrow boat with Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges supplied by Tritex NDT. The results were later evaluated and discussed with regard to compiling a report.
During the inspection it was found that a number of areas on the vessel had been overplated. The Multigauge 5600 and Multigauge 5650 Surveyor Thickness gauges gave reliable readings in all areas of the vessel, in some cases through extremely thick coatings.
