The PosiTector SST Soluble Salt Tester is a salt contamination gauge that measures the concentration of soluble salts on metal surfaces in accordance with ISO 8502-6, 8502-9. Features include an intuitive step-by-step interface that guides users through the Bresle method and automatic computation of surface density of salt. It is compatible with the Defelsko adhesive patch, latex adhesive patch and PosiPatch. The innovative Posipatch is a non-adhesive resuable patch that adheres to steel surfaces using magnetic ring. NO adhesive residue! NO sharps, NO needles!

Compatible with – Standard and Advanced body.

Measures the concentration of soluble salts (salt contamination) on metal surfaces in accordance with ISO 8502-6, 8502-9.

Conforms to ISO 8502-6/8502-9, US Navy NSI 009-32, US Navy PPI 63101-000, AS 3894.6, IMO MSC.215(82), IMO MSC.244(83), SSPC Guide 15, ISO 11127-6, ASTM D4940
