How to tell if it’s flooded? – Transcript

How does the Flooded Member Detection System determine whether there is the presence of liquid within a member?

To show you how this works, if you took the probe, I’m just going to drop it into our test tank here to simulate a flooded member just for ease of demo. That’s dropped in there and if you go in the software and click ping. You can see in the software we got a return at about a meter value which is the diameter of the member I’ve set up and it’s just been classified as flooded.

If I take the probe out of the water to dry it off. We’ll do another test ping just in the air this time. So ping there, this time I see no reflection and it’s classified as a dry reading. This is pretty quick and easy to understand how the system works.

For those who want to know more about how the system works, how to set it up, how to use the software, we’ve got a couple of really good videos on our website. On the Flooded Member Detection System ISFMD page.

One video shows you how to physically set up the entire system, how to plug the cable together, get it all connected to your laptop. The other video shows you the software interface so it shows you setting up for the first time and then takes you through actually getting readings as well.

Those videos they’re both quite short about 10 minutes in total but well worth viewing if you want to learn more about how to do flooded member detection and how to tell if it’s flooded?

How to tell if it’s flooded? – just one question we hope has been answered for you, if you have more please watch the full film here.
