Pressure

Understanding operational pressure limits can be essential, which is why we utilize specialized pressure and collapse testing methods to solve our clients’ most complex environmental challenges.

Our testing laboratories are equipped with a variety of pressure vessels, chambers, and enclosures to accommodate a broad range of pressure specifications, sample sizes, and industry-specific testing requirements.

Internal and external pressures may be combined with fluids and temperatures to simulate fluid flow and various environmental conditions. In these cases, we can also apply wet or dry strain gages in order to accurately monitor and record critical sample activity as it occurs.

High Pressure / High Temperature (HPHT) testing can be conducted in both gaseous and liquid environments, and also combined with numerous load and bending configurations.

  • Internal and External Hydrostatic Tests:
    •  Internal pressurization up to 60,000 psi (414 MPa)
    •  External pressurization up to 30,000 psi (207 MPa)
  • Internal and External Fluid Heating: up to 1500°F (816°C), as well as other ranges for specialty liquid applications
  • Large Diameter Pipe Collapse and Burst Tests
  • Product Containers and Packaging Tests
  • Continuous Monitoring of Alternating Fatigue Stresses
  • Testing of Seals, Wellscreens, Umbilical Cables, Subsea Connectors, Instrumentation, Chambers, and Vessels
