The Multigauge 5350 GRP Thickness Meter is a simple, robust ultrasonic thickness meter designed to check the condition of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) or Engineering Plastics. It can also be used on uncoated metal. The easy to use keypad allows operator interface, whilst the bright colour LCD display can be used in all light conditions. The moulded soft rubber surround feels comfortable, looks good and provides extra protection against knocks and scrapes. All probes have Intelligent Probe Recognition (IPR), which automatically adjusts settings in the gauge at the same time as transmitting recognition data – the result is a perfectly matched probe and gauge for enhanced performance.
Measurements can be logged using a grid or string format. The gauge will store up to 895 files, each containing 100 records. Each record can store either a string of 250 or grid of 16 x 16 measurements.
The GRP thickness meter uses wireless technology to transmit the measurements to the PC where dedicated Communicator software allows the analysis of the results or easy production of templates using wizards. Measurements are stored in a .txt format so that they can be opened in other applications.
Measurements can also be displayed remotely on a PC up to 1000 metres away.
The most important feature of this unit is 100% accuracy of osmosis early detection.
The Montenegro Marine Surveys (MMS) is an independent, non-political organization promoting the professionalism with over 27 years experience in the marine
The Montenegro Marine Surveys (MMS) are Ocean Going Commercial (SOLAS) vessel Surveyors, Commercial and Pleasure Sailing and Motor Yacht surveyors.
Mr. Dulic Predrag principal surveyor at Montenegro Marine Surveys offers a wide range of surveys from ocean going commercial vessels to small pleasure crafts.
The Montenegro Marine Surveys surveyors regularly attend marinas and ports in Montenegro:
• Porto Montenegro,
• Herceg Novi,
• Shipyard Bijela.
Our head office is at Budva - Montenegro, but we are also available for surveying in the following countries:
• Croatia (Dubrovnik, Ploce, Split, Sibenik, Zadar),
• Italia (Sardinia, Bari),
Commissioning marine surveying work is a crucial part of ensuring that your vessel(s), whether commercial or private leisure, are seaworthy, comply with the relevant maritime standards and will meet insurance and finance requirements.
Our main surveyor Mr. Predrag Dulic is authorized by the following flags to perform annual safety inspection on their behalf:
• Saint Vincent and Grenadines
We are encouraging vessel owners and other flag authorities to utilize our expertise to inspect their vessels and reduce risk of vessel's operation and PSC detentions. We shall send details of our observation with evidence as found to our contracted clients only.
When purchasing any new or used vessel it is a must to have a comprehensive pre-purchase survey done on your investment. In our survey we inspect the structural integrity of the vessel, afloat and in dock/slipway. We inspect its electrical, electronic, structural, navigation and miscellaneous systems including onboard safety systems according international/local requirements. On completion of the survey we supply a full comprehensive written report with detailed photographs.
Most insurance companies require a survey to determine if a vessel is an acceptable risk. Our survey is a comprehensive visual, structural and safety inspection. We also inspect all fitted systems and equipment and report on the structural integrity and safety of the vessel for its intended use. The survey provides a comprehensive written report with detailed photographs.
A Pre-vetting Inspection can help minimising or even eliminating the risk of negative observations during a SIRE Vetting, thus maintaining a low observation score in the database.
During a Pre-vetting Inspection we visit the vessel and perform an in-depth inspection covering all areas on board in relation to the SIRE Vetting programme with special focus on the Vessel Inspection Questionnaire (VIQ) in order to prepare the vessel for an upcoming vetting.
The overall objective is to identify any deficiencies which, according to the inspector’s experience, are likely to cause a negative response during a SIRE Vetting.
During the inspection the crew responsible for the various departments on board are given on the spot guidance in order to prepare them best possible for a vetting.
The Owner is provided with a detailed report with recommendations not later than 48 hours after completion of the Pre-vetting Inspection. The Master is provided with a summary and guidance prior to the inspector leaving the vessel. Upon request we can also assist with Owner’s response following a SIRE Vetting with negative observations.
