New Technical Services Brochure Available From Atlantic Diving Co.
A new 12-page Technical Services brochure from Atlantic Diving Company, Inc.
describes new underwater tools and techniques. It includes 14 on-the-job photographs and five technical diagrams.
Atlantic Diving Co. has programs for total inspection, maintenance, and repair. The Technical Services brochure deals primarily with inspection: visual inspections, using closed-circuit TV, color still photography, and certified welding inspectors; cathodic protection inspections, dealing with anode installation, potentiometer surveys and cathodic protection monitoring; ultrasonic and magnetic particle detection, for steel thickness readings, wood and concrete testing, weld flaw detection.
The brochure includes a case history of Atlantic Diving Company's inspection of the Norton (Va.) Reservoir dam. The dam was leaking 750,000 gallons of water per day through a number of leaks, and contributing to a local water shortage.
Atlantic Diving Co. inspected the dam using visual, low-frequency ultrasonic, and core-sampling techniques. They presented recommendations to the owner, and ultimately repaired the dam with quick-setting cement, and underwater epoxy to seal all the leaks completely.
The booklet details some of the new tools which Atlantic Diving Co. employs as part of their underwater technology, including the V-meter, which measures compressive strength nondestructively in concrete, wood, plastics and other coarse-grained material; the Haglof coring tool, which takes wood samples of timber piles; the bathycorrometer, a diver-operated device which measures the corrosion potential or cathodic protection of any underwater structure at any point on that structure; the D-meter, a portable thickness-measuring instrument which only requires access to one side of the structure to be measured (equally useful for ships' hulls and pipelines).
The booklet describes Atlantic Diving Co.'s basic monitoring packages, designed to maintain up-to-date information on any marine structure, gives a list of personnel and a representative customer list.
Atlantic Diving Co. maintains sales offices in Gloucester, Mass., Mamaroneck, N.Y., and Portland, Maine. In Virginia, the company is licensed under the name of A.D.C. Inc.
