What is a buoyancy test?

Put simply, a buoyancy test checks if a product is likely to float in fluid. This type of testing is done in one of our hyperbaric chambers to establish the effectiveness of the design and seals of a product when subjected to deep water pressures.

Buoyancy testing is a popular type of test for clients in the subsea and oil and gas sectors.

Hyperbaric Chambers

Our facility offers nine hyperbaric testing chambers ranging in size and pressure capability including the world’s largest, commercially available hyperbaric chamber which can simulate water depths down to 4,500 metres.
