High pressure testing subsea controls and communications connectors

(Ref: SO853, Equip No. 2072)

A fully automated high pressure testing system designed and manufactured for production testing subsea controls and communications connectors for the deepwater energy sector.

The walk-in pressure testing facility contains 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 subsea harness assemblies and 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 operator control panel is located on the outside of the walk-in test bay.

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.
