Solarglide today announced the worldwide release of Mariscan through their new sub-brand Everything Containers, especially for the shipping container market.

Mariscan is an ultrasonic water-tight tester developed for owners and users of shipping containers, which is easy to use and requires no formal training.

“Around 17 million shipping containers are in use around the world, storing everything from consumer electronics to household goods. Leaking containers in poor weather will result in the contents being either damaged or ruined, leading to supply chain problems and costly insurance claims” said Paul Pringle, Managing Director of Solarglide Limited.

“Every company who uses a shipping container can use Mariscan and be safe in the knowledge that the contents are being protected. It is also suitable for window seals, water-tight hatches, Yacht hatches/doors and windows”

Accuracy and portability

It's estimated that around 90% of world trade is carried by the international shipping industry, and any delays or problems with shipments can cause major delays.

Mariscan has been designed to be portable, quick to use, accurate and reliable. It’s possible to perform a water tight check of a shipping container in a matter of minutes.

Mariscan uses ultrasound and monitors if this has leaked through the seals of the container doors. The level of the signal being picked up by the receiver is likely reflective of the size of the gaps where water can pass through and highlights problem areas that need remedial action, said Darren Winter, Marketing & PR Manager.

Feature rich

Especially developed for the shipping container market, Mariscan is a high quality and affordable solution, which reduces the risk of contents being damaged from exposure to water damage and the rising cost of insurance claims.

Pricing and availability

Mariscan is available now from http://www.solarglide.com/mariscan and through Solarglide agents and distributors with a 15% introductory discount until 30th November.
