Pressure Testing – What to Do For Safety?

Container TestbayDuring high-pressure testing procedures, operators are constantly exposed to hazardous risks especially when connecting an object, starting a pressure test, and disconnecting the object after a successful test. Resato has used its 25-year experience in the oil & gas industry to develop a turnkey containerised pressure test bay: PPU.

Unlike the adaptation of a regular shipping container for pressure testing purposes, Resato has containerised its pressure test-bay. This means that it is built from scratch for just one purpose: testing objects in a flexible and safe environment, meeting client requirements and regulations. Due to the flexible design of the PPU, Resato can easily incorporate specific dimensions, logistics, handling or testing requirements, from stacked container for high objects, open top, opening front and back doors, to extendible overhead cranes.

The dedicated high-pressure test system allows both hydraulic function tests on tools and hydrostatic body tests, all operated and controlled from outside the pressure test bay to ensure maximum safety. The container is equipped with multiple safety devises such as automated door locks and sensors, emergency buttons and signal lighting to warn the surrounding area of potential danger in the inside of the test bay. Fully controllable high-end pan-zoom-tilt HD camera setup allows inspection of the tested object from a safe distance.

Unique in its design is the test bay integrated grid floor that collects and catches any spilled test fluids. The different level of optional filtration system combined with reservoir allows recycling of the test medium. This complete pump circulation system is capable of handling a wide range of fluids.
