High pressure testing subsea controls and communications connectors

(Ref: SO853, Equip No. 2072)

A pressure vessel used for production pressure testing subsea controls and communications connectors for the deepwater energy sector.

The pressure testing facility contained the actuated chock closure pressure vessel designed to provide the operator with a safe, quick opening and closing functionality. A purpose-built closure parking frame and stainless steel basket provide a safe and easy means of transferring the test components into the vessel body.

The pressure control system or fluid control module designed is integrated and enclosed within a support frame, automates the repetitive processes of filling, purging, draining pressurising and de-pressurising.

The PLC driven automated pressure control system specifically developed by our internal controls department accurately controls the variable and automated pressures and temperatures to a precise level, ensuring the safe operation of their components whilst under test, in addition to data logging and test reporting capabilities.
