TQCSHEENDC9000 HULL ROUGHNESS GAUGE
TQC has made the next evolutionary step in hull roughness surveys.Surpassing the industrial standards with an easy to operate 4-way directional push button, graphical representations, storage of data in multiple batches and survey reports in Microsoft Excel®. The whole system fits into a small sized waterproof rugged casing that is allowed as carry on travel luggage and benefits your overseas travel plans.
Controlling the roughness of a ship's hull plays an important role in the operating costs of a vessel. The roughness of a ship's hull increases mainly due to corrosion, pitting, plate undulation, mechanical damage, dry spray and above all bio fouling. Proper maintenance and the correct application of high-end anti-fouling coatings reduce the hydrodynamic effects and will lead to significant savings on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
The hull roughness is measured during in-docking and out-docking.The Hull Roughness Gauge measures the AHR value (Average Hull Roughness) of seagoing vessels. AHR is the mean of all the vessels hull roughness readings and is the measure against which ship's performance is correlated.
The TQC Hull roughness Gauge consists of a Control unit and a Sensor unit.The Hull Roughness Control unit can be operated with just one hand, a 4-waydirectional push button operates an intuitive menu on a large illuminated display. The neck strap keeps the users hands free when required.
