Subsea pressure regulator for depths to 3000m/10000ft

The Pressure Tech subsea regulator
Pressure Tech have developed a range of subsea pressure regulators to operate at depths up to 3,000m/10,000ft. The regulators use the external seawater as a reference pressure and have the ability to vary the set-point relative to the ambient pressure conditions.

Pressure Tech also offers a completely sealed spring chamber to ensure that the set pressure is not affected by the external conditions. The most recent sub-sea application is a for leading Oil & Gas services provider on a project using a hydraulic system operating at 1300m for several weeks at a time.

Due to the growing demand for subsea regulators Pressure Tech have invested in a 19.5 litre hyperbaric chamber to simulate external seawater pressure up to 300 bar whilst pressures up to 1034 bar/15,000psi are applied to the internals of the regulator. This will enable Pressure Tech to maintain complete control of not only design and manufacturing, but also in-house testing to ensure remain a market leader for this application. The test chamber is also available for other valve companies looking to perform high pressure external tests on a subcontract basis.
