We design, manufacture and supply a wide range of advanced testing platforms to specialist corrosion testing centres that are continually developing new and innovative testing methods, who specialise in the analysis and testing of materials, for use in extreme environments.

Corrosion laboratories require real-life data on how certain materials are likely to perform in specific conditions which will inform their design, materials, or chemical selection decisions.

KW Designed Solutions provide advanced pressure vessels, chemical reactors, and HPHT autoclaves complete with programmable pressure and temperature control systems; designed and manufactured to each unique project requirement, such as sour and non-sour applications.

Our equipment enables customers to carry out research and development, qualification and production testing (FAT) on materials following international testing standards such as ASTM, NACE and API, to ensure they’re safe for their intended environmental conditions and maintain their lifecycle whilst out in the field of deployment.

We design and manufacture highly specialised hyperbaric pressure testing systems to enable OEMs to perform rigorous testing regimes on equipment and technology used for the exploration and recovery of oil and gas in challenging environments.

Exploration and production of oil and gas
Oil and gas subsea production systems


KW supply hyperbaric pressure testing systems directly to OEMs, who develop subsea technologies and products used in marine and ocean engineering for use in extreme, harsh deep water locations.

Materials Science

Over many years we have designed, manufactured and supplied advanced HPHT autoclave testing platforms to world-leading materials testing providers, that specialise in the analysis and testing of specific materials, making certain that these materials are safe, quality and compliant, where failure is never an option.
