Submerged Gas Testing

Submerged Gas Testing Overview

Submerged Gas Testing is used for increased safety during Gas Testing, as well as being able to identify leaks without the increased risk. Enabling the verification of critical components and equipment (destined for deepwater environments and beyond), as part of a FAT (factory acceptance testing), qualification, or product development.

At our dedicated centre, based at our Head Office in Chorley, we operate purpose-built state-of-the-art Submerged Gas Testing equipment. It has the capacity to test at pressures of up to 22,500 psi. Water is chilled to subsea temperatures and pressurised with gas, to detect external leakage.

Gas 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, concrete reinforced Test Pit.

Our fully automatic pressure control and data logging system operates pressures of up to 10,000 psi. Whilst our manually operated pressure control and data logging system operates pressures up to 22,500 psi. Equipment can accommodate almost any test profile, within the equipment parameter range.
