Any metallic/conductive fixture or fitting attached to the building's structure. For example an earth strap, hand rail, air-conditioning or lightning conductor

Yes you can use 1, 2 or 3 extension rods; depending on the length suitable for your apllication. Yes you can attach the drum brush directly to the handle.

You can either connect your cable to another earth point, or you can use our 50m or 100m extension leads. To find out more Click here 

The test voltage that should be entered in to the machine is determined by the thickness of the material/coating. The formula used is NACE SP-02-74. 1mm = 1,000 microns. For example: If your membrane is 1.5mm thick the calculator should be set to 1500 microns. use the built-in calculator or use the A50 Test Voltage Calculator. For more detailed explanation Click here

You can use a 5m, 10m, 50m or 100m earth lead

This can be used to:

Pinpoint an exact pinhole

Test difficult/awkward areas such as corners, which other electrodes cannot reach

Whatever speed you like to work at. If there is a fault, the unit will always detect it.

This could be due to the heat of the membrane on a hot/sunny day causing the output voltage to drop. Your sensitivity will need to be raised.

On average this process takes 24 hours, but the charging status will appear on the charger.

If your unit is not working or shows signs of damage, we would recommend the unit is returned for assessment.

Yes you can. If you press the select button twice you will see a volume control. This can be adjusted using the +/- buttons on the unit.

Your unit will require calibration every 12 months. Please send the complete kit as all contents will be tested. To send your unit in Click Here

No, this is a warning tick to let you know the unit is live and generating a voltage.

Yes it is. You will see if you unscrew the earth terminal on the unit that there is a hole. You can strip your earth lead back, twist it, place it through the hole and tighten until secure. (Important: this will cause excessive wear on the earth lead and may produce a less effective earth connection. Please ensure your unit is sent in for repair as soon as possible.

This may be due to:

- Your output voltage is dropping as current draw increases above the set sensitivity threshold. Adjust the sensitivity to accommodate this.

- The membrane surface being tested may not be completely dry; allowing current to 'track' to earth - Your electrode might be too big

- The membrane you are testing is conductive (possibly due to carbon content)

The surface must be completely dry although any moisture beneath the roof's surface which has accumulated via leaks may actually aid the detection process.

We recommend that you use the 450mm brush supplied with the kit. A larger electrode can draw more current causing your output voltage to drop beyond the detector's sensitivity range and trigger the alarm. This can increase in warm weather when the membrane temperature is hotter.

Any non-conductive membrane up to the specified thickness your detector is able to test, provided the membrane or coating is ostensibly non-conductive.

EPDM cannot be tested as it contains carbon which makes it conductive.

Between 1,500m² and 2.000m², depending on the amount of detailed areas requiring testing.

This will vary, but on a single ply membrane the thickness may be labelled along the laps. Note: when testing, only take the top layer into consideration.

Yes, we can provide on-site traininge in the UK. We hold the necessary certification/cards to access a UK site. Please contact us for a quotation

This may be due to:

A poor earth connection - ensure the detector is adequately earthed.

To determine an adequate earth, check by touching the electrode to another earth point.

A good earth will trigger the detector's alarm. Ensure you wear the anti-static writband.

Yes - Hold down the 'ON' button on the handle & the 'ON' button on the machine simultaneously. Once you hear the double beep sound, the machine wil run continiously. To return to the manual setting, push the the 'ON' button on the machine.

No - Each handle is calibrated to a specific unit.

Yes - there are various other electrodes available, such as drum brush, rolling and phosphor bronze brush electrodes. For a list of available electrodes Click here

Yes - We recommend using high quality batteries, similar to the batteries supplied in your kit. To order batteries from us Click here 

No, because the screw-in half cell would have dried out. The readings from this may also not come back into tolerance. If it is thoroughly dried out, it will require an initial soaking of at least twelve hours. The battery that is contained within the BathyCorrometer® housing may require recharging. If the unit is still out of tolerance return your BathyCorrometer® and all its accessories to Buckleys (UVRAL) Ltd or one of our certified repair centres via www.buckleysinternational.com/repairs

The maximum operating depth is 350 metres.

Notify the police, your insurers and Buckleys as soon as possible. We maintain a list of serial numbers of items reported stolen. If an instrument returned to us for repair or calibration is found to be on this list, we will notify you, and if circumstances permit, the police.

Remove the pointed probe, white probe cone and red nose cone. Flush the red nose cone and screw-in half cell in clean seawater. Dry and re-assemble all parts, grease the handle socket and shorting plug. Pack the BathyCorrometer® and all accessories in its transit case and store it in a dry environment.

We advise that you replace the blunt tip with a new Stainless Steel Probe Tip(H14 or H14B)

The UCP's do not have a built in meter, as they are most commonly used with an ROV. You can use a good-quality calibrated multimeter, and a Buckleys reference cell.

All measurements will be subject to some uncertainty and inaccuracy and this will give rise to differences between two "identical" cells. This is to be expected, and provided it is within the range of tolerance specified (+/- 5mV), is not a fault.

We have to get a bit scientific to answer this. The standard electrode potential E0 against standard hydrogen electrode (SHE) is 0.230V ± 10mV. This means that any k-cell may be up to 10mV above or below the standard value. This means that when comparing two k-cells, or a k-cell and a glass reference cell, you may see a deviation between them of up to 20mV, but this would be most unusual. Ideally there would be zero difference, but for all normal purposes, you would expect the values to be within 5mV, up to 10mV if there is not a fault.

You would expect that the maximum deviation is 10mV above or below 42mV, but +/-5mV is typical.

Store the glass cell in a dark, dry, and cool place with the protective caps on. Prepare the cell by removing the protective cap and allowing the cell to stabilise in a fresh 3% artificial seawater solution.

This is not advisable as it may cause water damage to the connector. The instrument should be turned on before entering the water, and turned off after it has been rinsed and dried.

Thesilver-silver half cell in a BathyCorrometer® is mounted under the red nose cone. Unscrew and remove the tip, unscrew and remove the white probe cone, unscrew the metal securing nut and washer and the red cone will lift off. Note that there are two pins to locate it. These will probably remain in the main body, but be careful not to lose them if they are loose. Unscrew the half-cell, and ensure that the socket is not contaminated or wet. Apply silicone grease to the O-ring and thread of the new half-cell, and carefully screw it into place - ensure it is fully screwed in. Be careful not to touch the interior parts of the cell with your fingers as skin grease will contaminate the active element of the cell. Replace the red nose cone by lining it up to the locating pins, screw in the nut and washer, grease the O-ring and thread of the white probe cone, and refit, tighten and grease and fit a new tip.

Both cells perform the same function. The k-cell is based on silver-silver chloride chemistry, and does not contain any mercury. Calomel cells are based on mercury-mercury chloride chemistry, and contain liquid mercury which is classed as a dangerous heavy metal. K-cells are safer to use and environmentally better.

Check the temperature and salinity of your test water. Flush the red nose cone of the BathyCorrometer thoroughly with running salt water. Ensure that the zinc or magnesium block is clean.

Ideally, you should return it to Buckleys, or our authorised distributor for repair or replacement, however we recognise that professional diving operations may well include team members who are technically competent to carry out simple electronic repairs and pressure test the housings. Buckleys provide a comprehensive range of spare parts, all the necessary tools, and will provide repair instructions on request, however, we will decline warranty on any instruments that have been repaired by non-authorised staff.

The zinc and magnesium blocks provide an efficient means of checking that the BathyCorrometer® is working correctly. Ensure that the block is not covered in plastic, paint, corrosion, or any other contaminant, place the appropriate block in a non-metallic container of water (zinc for normal sea-water, magnesium for brackish, low salinity water) and ensuring that the BathyCorrometer has not trapped any air in the red cone, press the electrode tip firmly onto the test block. The readings should be; zinc -1.04V +/- 0.4V, magnesium - 1.6V +/- 0.1V

The readings should be; zinc -1.04V +/- 0.4V, magnesium - 1.6V +/- 0.1V
