Sonardyne Deep Water Pressure Testing Facility Available to Hire

Subsea technology company Sonardyne International Ltd., has announced that it is making available to hire its new deep water hydrostatic pressure testing chamber, one of the largest in the UK.

Located at its headquarters in Yateley, 40 miles south-west of London, the facility is now open to third party companies and organizations to test the integrity of their underwater components and instruments by simulating water depths up to 6,300 meters.

Hydrostatic testing is the most reliable and cost-effective way to validate the integrity of subsea equipment before it is deployed in the field. With an internal diameter of 0.76 meters and internal length of 2 meters, Sonardyne’s chamber is able to accommodate large single instruments or multiples of smaller instruments and components at the same time. It can be programmed to meet the requirements of specific industry standards including pressure cycling, ramping and holding.

A dedicated Test Engineer supervises all testing activities, providing clients with full reports which include applied pressure graphs, test certificates and photographic records. Full technical and custom engineering support is also available on-site.
