Simulating subsea conditions with energy chains

Hyperbaric testing simulates deep-water conditions, and effectively assesses subsea equipment with hydraulic and electrical components at depth. Master Flo Valve Inc. is home to one of the largest custom-built hyperbaric test systems in the U.S. The system simulates sea water pressures equivalent to 23,000 feet below sea level (10,000 PSI/690 bar) and temperatures below freezing. In the chamber of the system, energy chains® were used for optimal cable protection.
