This special-purpose pressure vessel, with the bayonet quick-acting closure, incorporates a manual interlock. It has been designed to carry out Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) on subsea electrical connectors.
The manual quick-acting 1/8 turn closure, incorporates a manual safety shot bolt interlock.
The design allows pressure testing of the connectors to be static or dynamic i.e. the connectors are allowed to mate and de-mate during electrical testing. The mate/ de-mate system is mainly incorporated into the closure design.
