Industrial Surveys for the shipping industry focus on containers, containerized tanks, flat racks and other industrial equipment used for storing and loading a variety of cargo.
The integrity of lifting points, framing, and stiffeners, as well as water-tight seals are critical in preventing accidents and damage to cargo. Water infiltration can ruin cargo, and failure of a structural component, whether during a lift or while in transit lashed to other containers can have catastrophic results.
Using ultrasonic measuring tools and other technology, Marine Surveyors Cayman can accurately measure thickness of steel components to determine whether manufacturer’s “wastage” limits have been reached.
Marine Surveyors Cayman also examines door seals, decking, piping, valves and other appurtenances to insure the integrity of the equipment.
