PCWI Compact DC Porosity Detector


The PCWI Compact Porosity Detectors are High Voltage, small and lightweight Units with clip-on battery packs and features digital display of applied voltage, constant test current, fully adjustable voltage and sensitivity controls. These are used to ensure the longevity of coating systems by locating pin holes, air bubbles, and porosity in non-conductive coatings on conductive substrates, including concrete. It can be used in most applications including pipelines, steel structures and tankwork. Commonly known as holiday detectors, spark testers, porosimeters or jeepers. Complies with the requirements of AS3894.1-2002 (R2013) and Nace Standards: SP0274-2011 & SP0188-2006. CE Compliant. Proudly manufactured in Australia by PCWI.

Applications:

  • Used for the detection of coating porosity (pin-holes or holidays) in dielectric (insulation type) coatings on conductive substrates, including concrete.
  • Suitable for Production Pipelines coating operations, Tank-work and Structures. Ideal for use on storage tanks, valves and pipelines.
  • Housed in a fully portable ABS case, the Detectors deliver stabilized DC output of up to 30kV. Constant current source maintains applied test voltage. Full test current at low voltages (where it is needed most) when testing at low film builds (eg 150┬Ám, as per AS3894.1-2002).
  • Incorporating momentary-on and continuous-on switches (mounted on the front panel), allowing the units to be switched on momentarily for safety, or to run continuously.
  • No need to swap probes to change voltage - the detectors have clip-on battery packs which must be separately charged. Fully recharged in 4 hours. Regulated DC output fully adjustable. Applied voltage and battery condition are continuously shown on the Liquid Crystal Display.
