The NSWCCD-SSES 631 tested the UL101 in land-based and shipboard VCHT systems. Tests concluded that the UL101 is capable of quickly locating vacuum leaks. Conventional methods were cited to be labor-intensive and time-consuming.
The advisory recommends the UL101 ultrasound detector for ships in the DDG-51, LPD-17, and PC-1 classes, and hulls LCS-1, LCS-2 and CVN-77. The detector is available in the stock system under NSN: 6635-01-534-2512. Manuals and documentation will be updated to reflect the advisory.
