What is hyperbaric testing?

Hyperbaric testing is the application of external pressure to a component and is carried out in a specialist hyperbaric chamber to simulate extreme pressure environments. The component may be retained inside of the hyperbaric chamber by its own weight where heavy industrial products are concerned.

Retaining straps are used to hold buoyancy modules in place, or racking where separation is required for fragile components. Bespoke tooling can also be manufactured for specialist items.

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.
