Product Testing and Development
This unique hydrostatic pressure testing facility is now available to hire by third party companies and organisations to support the development of their own underwater instruments and systems.
With an internal diameter of 0.76 metres and internal height of 2 metres, the chamber is able to accommodate large single instruments or multiples of smaller instruments at the same time. Equipment under test can be interfaced via six breakout ports which can be adapted to suit client specific connectors, allowing full communications with the equipment whilst under pressure. The chamber is filled with tap water mixed with a corrosion inhibitor.
The control system for the chamber can be programmed to meet the requirements of specific industry standards including pressure cycling, ramping and holding. Ramp rates of up to 50 bar/min can be programmed and pressure inside the chamber logged. A dedicated Test Engineer supervises all testing activities and can provide clients with a full report which includes applied pressure graphs, test certificates and photographic records.
Sonardyne’s test facility is conveniently located 40 miles south-west of London in Yateley, Hampshire, and just 5 minutes from Junction 4a of the M3 motorway. Equipment can be easily unloaded by forklift through a dedicated roller door from where it can be manoeuvred into position by a motorised, remotely controlled overhead crane rated to 2.5 tonnes. Guest Wi-Fi access is available, along with technical advice from Sonardyne’s highly experienced electro-mechanical design engineers if required.
