In accordance with American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) & Det Norske Veritas (DNV) requirements for survey of different vessel types, ultrasonic gauging is used to confirm integrity of these vessels and to ensure compliance with their annual statutory surveys, intermediate or special periodical surveys as may be required. Most vessels including Tankers, Bulk Carriers, Chemical Carriers, Oil Carriers, Barges, etc are usually subjected to these surveys which cover various sections including deck, hull, transverse sections, cargo areas, ballast tanks, boilers, etc.

Thickness measurements are carried out on these vessels using qualified personnel and calibrated gauges and when extensive areas of wastage are found which exceed allowable margin, renewals are recommended and carried out to an ABS Surveyor’s acceptance.
