From bench-top pressure testing apparatus to complete walk-in high pressure testing cells. KW Designed Solutions are leaders in the turnkey supply, installation and commissioning of fully integrated high pressure testing facilities for renowned materials research and technology manufacturers globally.

By integrating other types of ancillary equipment into the supply of our pressure testing systems and pressure vessels and associated control systems, we produce fully operational, bespoke pressure testing facilities and test cells in line with specific project requirements.

Typical types of ancillary equipment include safety enclosures, walkways and gantries, lifting and handling equipment, closure parking frames, tooling, baskets, jigs and fixtures. The combination of all these pieces of equipment allows us to create a safe, practical and efficient working environment for our customers and their test personnel; whilst minimising the shop floor footprint.

KW Pressure Testing Ltd is our purpose-built, in-house environmental and pressure testing facility, offering hyperbaric, hydrostatic, gas testing, submerged gas testing, fugitive emission testing, along with PR2 testing and IBL testing.

Our facility and a team of experienced pressure testing engineers are available to help and ensure equipment is compliant with customer specifications and relevant industry standards, providing qualification, type approval and factory acceptance testing components used in the toughest of environments for the offshore and subsea industries, requiring rigorous testing along with assisting new product development.

All testing is safely conducted within dedicated test cells and our customers receive full technical and engineering support, along with a full test report and documentation pack. Customer witness and third-party inspections welcomed.
