Temperature testing

Not sure what you're looking for?

Call us on +44 (0) 191 209 7490 to speak to one of our experts.

Temperature testing is carried out to understand how a product or component will react in extreme temperature conditions.

The API 6A Appendix F PR2 qualification has been specifically designed for components which will be commissioned in remote and hostile environments. This gives engineers absolute confidence that their components can withstand the most arduous environments throughout their working life.

Our environmental testing bays can simulate temperatures as low as -160°C up to +300°C. Extreme temperature testing, alongside the application of high pressure gas testing, allows us to simulate extreme operating conditions and verify that a component can function under these conditions safely and reliably. Our testing engineers regularly conduct API 6A PR2 testing as part of this testing service.

Cryogenic testing

Cryogenic testing, or low temperature testing, can be conducted at our facility. Testing to low temperatures can be critical when components are intended for deployment within extreme environments such as the Arctic, or at high altitudes in the air.

Liquid nitrogen is stored on-site to facilitate testing to incredibly low temperatures. We can achieve temperatures down to -160°C.

Our team of highly skilled test engineers are experienced in completing temperature testing across a range of sectors. Clients have the opportunity to select our beginning to end, fully project managed testing service, or can independently hire the chambers.

Sectors requiring cryogenic testing:

  • Energy (nuclear) – nuclear waste storage containers
  • Transportation (aerospace) – brakes

Sectors requiring temperature testing:

We have client offices and break out areas if you wish to be on-site during your temperature test.

If temperature testing is something you require, speak to a member of our team.

What is temperature testing?

Temperature testing is a simulation of extreme operating conditions to verify that your components can safely function under these conditions.

We can test up to +300˚C and down to temperatures as low as -160˚C in our environmental bays while pressurising and operating. API 6A PR2 is conducted as part of this service.

Temperature testing is a great way to test that your product can function at extreme temperatures.

Do you provide cryogenic testing?

Yes! Cryogenic or low temperature testing can be done at our facility. This type of testing is beneficial for components that are intended for extreme environments such as the North Sea or high altitudes.

We store liquid nitrogen on-site to allow us to reach incredibly low temperatures. We can achieve temperatures down to -160°C in order to meet our clients’ needs.

Why choose us?

Facilities on-site

Opt for either an all-encompassing, fully project managed testing service provided by our experts and in-house engineering team, or, hire our pressure testing facilities to conduct independent testing.

Client Facilities

Our clients travel across the globe to utilise our pressure testing services and hyperbaric testing equipment. We will aim to support your connectivity to provide a comfortable working environment whilst you oversee product testing.

Whilst your product is undergoing the testing process, take advantage of our dedicated client offices, break-out area, Wi-Fi and conferencing facilities. If a client representative cannot travel to our facility, they can remotely log onto our IT system to stream live test data and video footage of their component being tested.

Reduced Lead Times

Working to a tight timescale? We can conduct 24 hour testing at our facility, subject to availability. Clients also have the option to complete testing in multiple chambers.

Our largest chamber, hyperbaric chamber TPT 5, is equipped with automated controls and an interactive system to improve efficiency and reduce loading times meaning this chamber can fill, load and pressurise in just 90 minutes!

Data Reporting

As standard, our clients receive full documentation and product certification after the testing is completed.

The majority of our hyperbaric chambers are fitted with subsea cameras and this video footage can be shared upon request.

Additional Client Services

We can offer additional services to help fulfil project requirements such as; assembly, data reporting, third party verification, logistics and storage and dedicated client facilities.

Third Party Verification

We can arrange for a third party witness to oversee your product testing and verification. We frequently work with leading authorities such as Bureau Veritas and Lloyd’s Register.
