Coltraco Launches Brand New Products: Portagas® and Porta Level Max Plus

Portagas® is a unique and innovative contents monitoring solution for pressurised, non-liquified inert gas cylinders. Through a combination of sophisticated signal processing and data-driven, empirically verified algorithms, Portagas® utilises acoustic technology. This is used to detect even minor changes in the internal pressure, with precision comfortably exceeding the 5-10% agent and pressure loss thresholds cited in regulations such as NFPA 2001 and ISO 14520.

For 4 years, Coltraco has been designing the means for operators to monitor the contents of their Non-liquified Fixed Fire Gaseous Extinguishing Systems containing the non-liquefied gas, Inergen™, and which sometimes replaces the liquefied gaseous extinguishants such as Halon or NOVEC™ 1230. Inergen™ is typically stored in 45 Kg/100lb cyclinders at pressures up to 300 bar. At such pressures, they are also subject to slow seepage of contents or occasionally accidental discharge. If the gas is insufficient to develop the design concentration required, the fire event will not be extinguished. Coltraco’s Portagas® instrument allows operators and ships to monitor their cylinders so that the integrity of the Inergen™ system can be maintained by the crew who depend on it.

The Portalevel® MAX PLUS is an all-new liquid level indicator with three extended calibration features and a display that will indicate if the sensor is in the GAS or LIQUID phase of a fire suppression cylinder. This portable and battery powered, liquid level indicator designed to non-invasively, accurately, and reliably measure the level of fire suppression agent contained within a cylinder. The UL-Approved Portalevel® MAX PLUS is suitable for CO2, most Liquified Clean Agents and Halons.
