FBDT ELECTRONIC (FREEBOARD DRAFT TUBE)
GET EXACT RESULTS EVEN IN ROUGH WEATHER
Old surveyors joke: "Draft Survey is not a science - it's an art!".
Our equipment helps all surveyors to refute the aforementioned joke!
The middle draft has the biggest influence on our calculations during the draft survey. FBDT Electronic gives a good opportunity to define the middle draft with the HIGH PRECISION +/- 0.5 cm! Even in rough weather!
FBDT Electronic (FreeBoard Draft Tube) consists of stainless steel pipe with electronic water sensor inside, measuring tape and transparent (3 m length) tube with small hole at the end, that allows water get inside of pipe slowly till sensor and excludes influence of waves to the measurement from Deck Line till water level due to the stable position of water inside of pipe.
Using FBDT Electronic you'll be able:
- Define mid draft in rough weather from the deck of the vessel and shore-side mid draught, if it's covered by shore fender
- Improve the quality of your calculations
- Perform your job SAFELY, easier and accurately
Summer Draft + Summer Freeboard = Distance from keel to Deck Line, minus the measured distance with FBDT (from water level till Deck Line) will give us the Real Draft.
- HIGH Precision (+/- 0.5 cm!)
- Reliable device
- Reducing time for Draft Survey
- Tested in extreme climate conditions
- Approved for max weight of sink-stone of 12 kg
The production is asbestos free in accordance with SOLAS ll-1, REGULATION 3-5 AND MSC.1/CIRC.1379.
SAFETY - FIRST OF ALL
- High waves - the heavier weight of sink-stone
BE ADVANCED SURVEYOR!
Chief Officers can use FBDT to define FWD and AFT drafts from the deck of your vessels.
