TQC Launches Hull Roughness Test Gauge

Comment | More

Dutch developer TQC has extended its range of test products with the release of the DC9000 Hull Roughness Gauge, billed as “the next evolutionary step in hull roughness surveys.”

Ship hull roughness increases because of corrosion and/or biofouling, which can hamper a vessel’s performance and drive up its operating costs and CO2 emissions. The gauge helps shipowners measure and control the roughness of a ship’s hull.

The instrument measures hull roughness from corrosion and/or biofueling.

Features and Design

The instrument features a four-way directional push button, graphical representations, storage of data in multiple batches, and survey reports in Microsoft Excel. 

The sensor gauge is equipped with three non-slip wheels and a carbide-tipped stylus. The unit is moved over the ship’s hull in a horizontal way, collecting series of 12 measurements each.

Statistics, time/date, location of each series, and the average hull roughness are automatically calculated and stored in the instrument’s internal memory, which connects to a personal computer via USB connection.

The control unit can be operated with just one hand and features an intuitive menu on a large illuminated display. A neck strap allows users to keep hands free when required. The compact sensor is equipped with a set of LEDs to indicate the instrument’s status, so operation is possible without observing the control unit.
