Pressure Chamber

Problem: Design and build a 57-litre 20-bar pressure chamber for a customer to pressure test their electronic instruments.

The chamber has an inner chamber that is filled with water and the instruments are lowered into with the cables over the edge of this chamber.

We built the unit with a lid that is secured and pressure increased to 20 bar equivalent to a water depth of 204 metres.

This simulates the conditions that the equipment will be subjected to during its use and was designed to ensure the instrument is water tight.
