MacArtney France adds pressure test facility
MacArtney France is pleased to announce the addition of a modern and fully equipped pressure test facility to its workshop in Rousset. Being unique to the French market for underwater technology, the new facility represents a notable extension of the MacArtney France service portfolio.
Empowered by the newly installed pressure vessel system with a height of 1100 mm, an internal diameter of 650 mm and a pressure capacity of up to 600 bar - the test facility is able to submit underwater connectors, cables, mouldings, junction boxes and other types of equipment to extensive ocean depth pressure tests.
For optimal accuracy, the pressure vessel system is capable of pre-programmed and fully computer controlled operation with all measurements undertaken and recorded in real-time.
To ensure flexible connectivity to equipment tested inside the tank, six penetrator passes are incorporated into the vessel lid. Moreover, an overhead crane with a capacity of 4000 kg ensures that even very heavy or unwieldy equipment can be pressure tested.
The MacArtney France pressure test facility offers reinforced safety operations and is available for rental on an hourly or daily basis, with all testing performed by fully trained and certified MacArtney technicians.
