Hydrostatic Testing

Hydrostatic Testing Overview

Hydrostatic testing is the most common method used by OEM companies. Enabling the verification of subsea components and equipment (destined for deep and ultra-deepwater environments and beyond), as part of a FAT (factory acceptance testing), qualification, or product development.

At our dedicated facility, based at our Head Office in Chorley, we operate purpose-built state-of-the-art Hydrostatic Testing equipment. It has the capacity to test at pressures of up to 2760 bar or 40,000 psi.

Hydrostatic Testing subjects the internal workings of a component / assembly to elevated pressure conditions. To ensure our test engineers’ safety, components are generally located within a specifically built Test Pit.

Components can also be placed in our Environmental Chamber, under strict controlled and risk assessed conditions, where temperature can be added as an additional test parameter.

Our purpose-built in-house Hydrostatic Pressure Control System can provide manual or automated control. Our innovative equipment can accommodate almost any test profile within the equipment parameter range.
