Pressure Testing Chambers for Subsea Equipment Testing

KW Designed Solutions hyperbaric pressure testing chambers are used extensively by companies, who serve the offshore industry. Traditionally the name hyperbaric is used to describe any chamber or vessel, that operates above atmospheric conditions. 

Our hyperbaric test chambers are ideal for hydrostatic testing subsea products and components, to be able to replicate extreme deep ocean pressures and temperatures, simulating and controlling the harsh environmental subsea operating conditions that these products encounter daily.

2750 bar – 40,000 psi

These hyperbaric chambers are supplied with internal diameters of 20mm to 2,500mm; with operating pressures of up to 2750 bar (40,000 psi) and temperatures from -40°C to 300°C.

KW Designed Solutions hyperbaric test chambers are used for carrying out customer Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) of their in-house manufactured components and aiding in New Product Development (NPD).

All our hyperbaric test chambers can be supplied with additional features that allow real-life simulation. They are compatible with various types of pressurisation media (water is generally the most common) but water/glycol mixes, seawater, seawater with sand and silt, oils and other liquids can also be specified.

Pressure and Temperature Cycle Testing

We provide various types of pressure control systems to control the pressurisation and depressurisation rates of the test media to simulate the lowering of components from the sea level down to the ocean depths. Various pressure and temperature cycles can be performed, then held at pressure and temperature for a required amount of time, before being retrieved back to the surface.

Features

  • Agitation – creating a turbid environment stirring up seawater with sand and silt or simply to provide even temperature distribution of the testing media
  • Associated testing types
  • Component manipulation/ observation under pressure.
  • Feedthroughs – electrical or hydraulic
  • Heating and cooling
  • Mate/ de-mate – allowing operation of wet-mate electrical connectors
  • Tilting – of the whole chamber for closure accessibility or product test alignment.

Associated Testing Types

  • API 16F and API 17L
  • API 6A PR2
  • IBL (Instrumented Buoyancy Loss) Testing
  • ISO 13628-5 & ISO 13628-6

Typical Customer Test Products (DUT)

Subsea electrical hose assemblies, subsea wet-mate electrical connectors, DBMs (distributed buoyancy modules), CIMVs (chemical injection metering valve), SEMs (subsea electronic modules), wellhead pressure and temperature sensors.
