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 ships hull plays an important role in the operating costs of a vessel. The roughness of a ships 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 sea going vessels. AHR is the mean of all the vessels hull roughness readings and is the measure against which ships 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-way directional push button operates an intuitive menu on a large illuminated display. The neck strap keeps the users' hands free when required.

The Sensor unit is equipped with three non-slip wheels and a carbide tipped stylus and is moved over the ships hull in a horizontal way collecting series of measurements. A set of LEDs indicate the status of the instrument so operation is possible without observing the control unit.

Statistics, time/date and location of each series and the average hull roughness are automatically calculated and stored in the Control unit. Using the supplied USB-cable and software you instantly create inspection reports in Microsoft Excel. Your own company logo and or -details can be incorporated to restyle your reports.

PENDULUM HARDNESS TESTER

The TQC Pendulum Hardness Tester has a lot of unique features that ease defining hardness by the Knig and/or Persoz method as described in ISO 1522. Both methods work on the principle that the damping time of a pendulum oscillating on a sample indicates the hardness.

The instrument has an easy menu-driven interface with jog dial. The automated electronic counting mechanism is not affected by reflections from the surrounding area. The water-level is located on the test specimen, rather than on the instruments base. Once the instrument is leveled further calibration is not required. The gas-spring supported transparent draft cover allows easy access to all parts of the instrument.

TQCs Pendulum Hardness Tester is a modular system. The instrument itself can be used for both the Knig and- Persoz method. Both pendulums should be ordered separately. After placing the correct pendulum, switching between the two measuring methods only takes a push of a button. The Pendulum is positioned fully automatically by means of a stepper motor. Also the release of the Pendulum is automated through electro-magnetic system. The end of a test is indicated by a visual and acoustic signal.

The TQC Pendulum Hardness Tester base device is available as a 110VAC / 50/60Hz and a 230VAC / 50Hz model.

CUREVIEW THERMAL TEST CENTRE

Dutch manufacturer TQC designs and produces Field and Laboratory test equipment Measuring Instruments paint , coatings and general surface treatment markets . The R&D department is currently working on a variety of new products. Among those a ViscoThinner and a low voltage pinhole detector. Without doubt the most exciting R& D project is development of the TQC CureView Thermal Test Centre.

Temperature Patterns
The CureView is a flexible oven that allows the user to heat-up test panels on a glass bed to a variety of temperature profiles varying from ambient to about 300C. Elevated temperatures are virtually instantly generated. The 32 spectral filtered IR halogen heaters can be controlled Individually which enables the user to program any form of temperature template varying from a perfect parabolic shaped gradient, an ascending or descending slope or a number of temperature blocks. Another possibility is to take profiles measured by the CurveX oven logger system, also part of the TQC ThermoKinetic range and upload these in to the CureView in order to simulate the production process on lab scale.

Automated process
The working platform measures 23.6 x 15.8 x 0.16 inch (600 x 400 x 4 mm) utilizing a Schott Nextrema glass panel with excellent directional thermal characteristics, and ultra flat and smooth surface profilometry and is completely inert thus easy to clean.
This setup allows the user to prepare the panel outside the test area. After preparation the panel slides automatically into the oven without any vibration.
The finished panel exits the heating area after the process is finished. A unique cooling station rapidly cools the panel down. After cooling, the panel is automatically transported to the working area. This speeds up the process significantly.

A clear glass ceramic cover and built-in led illumination allows the operator to visually witness the entire process. Any fumes or gasses are extracted through an air-extraction system.

Hybrid control unit
The machine is controlled by a special software system able to communicate with Ideal Finish Analysis.
In order to be completely flexible the software can be used in isolation from the CureView control unit Ideal when the machine has to be used in a fume hood.

ThermoKinetic
The TQC CureView is part of the TQC ThermoKinetic range of products. A new range within our product line which focusses on the effect of temperature on paint related chemistry. This CureView project runs in close collaboration with a number of global players in the resin and additives industry.
The TQC CureView Thermal Test Centre will be released later this year. For more information contact TQC: info@tqc.eu, or visit the website: www.tqc.eu
BOXED TEXT:
Variety of applications

The BK 3 speed Drying Recorder (Beck Koller method) is used widely in the coatings industry throughout the world for several decades. A needle carrier holding six hemispherical ended needles travels the length of the six 305 x 25 mm test strips in 6, 12 or 24 hours. Other speeds are available to special order. A time scale on the side cover is graduated to suit the three different travel times.

The BK 6 and BK 10 Recorders have independently operating tracks allowing tests to be made at different start times. Pairs of tracks operate at the same speed, and a wide range of travel times are available. Travel times of 6, 12, 24 and 48 hours are all considered as standard. A time scale on the front cover is graduated to suit the instruments drying time ranges. Each pair of tracks has its own individual operating switch.

The Recorders define stages in the drying process as:-
Stage 1 A pear shaped impression corresponding to the time taken for evaporation of solvent.
Stage 2 The cutting of a continuous track, corresponding to a sol-gel transition.
Stage 3 An interrupted track corresponding to the surface-dry time.
Stage 4 The needle no longer penetrates the film, corresponding to the final drying time.

Coating Defect Identification Label SP0050

Imperfections or problems found during inspections of coating work usually require attention of second or third parties after they have been found.
A second opinion of the paint supplier, witnessing of counter parties or just the attention of a repair crew. In each case it is important the above mentioned spots are easily found back, also when the original inspector is not around anymore.
Large structures such a ships, bridges and steel construction but also poorly lit areas such as tanks can cause problems in that respect. How, for example, would you describe the exact location of a number of small pinholes, hardly visible (or even non-visible) with the naked eye in a 5000 square meter tank bottom?

For recordkeeping often pictures of the problems found are being taken. Including the TQC CDI label in the photograph retrieves immediately the dimensions of the defects and the writable area on the label offers the possibility to add extra information to the photograph.

In a serial production environment the CDI labels can be used to identify parts for rework or scrap.
