As we continue into a second lockdown, we’ve had the pleasure of receiving a new order for a manual chock closure pressure vessel from one of our long standing customers who are a UK based innovative designer and manufacturer of subsea electronic equipment for positioning, tracking and seabed survey.
KW will be designing, manufacturing and delivering the hyperbaric test chamber which will have an internal volume of 88 litres, with a maximum operating pressure of 750 bar, at temperatures between 0°C to 50°C, it will also interface with their existing pressure control system.
This type of pressure vessel was initially designed and developed to carry out qualification and FAT testing of subsea flexible riser buoyancy modules, however, we’ve also seen a high volume of orders from a variety of subsea OEM’s.
The closure plug is safely retained by a set of ergonomically designed, segmented chocks that the operator can easily handle. This allows the robust closure to be locked and unlocked in a matter of minutes for quick product change-out which helps improve efficiency. This provides a sound mechanical safety feature, preventing the accidental removal of any of the segmented chocks.
