The NORSOK pressure test skid unit features a high-volume circuit for rapid filling and a high-pressure circuit for raising to final pressure. Another identical pair of circuits provides 100% redundancy. Primary power is provided by an electrically driven hydraulic pump. Three modes of operation are provided; local manual control (standalone) and passive safety systems, local manual control with electrical monitoring/recording and active safety systems enabled, and local manual operation with remote monitoring/recording and access to active safety systems. Unit features a local graphical interface displaying and recording pressure, flow and system parameters.
Three selectable pressure settings are provided on the unit to protect against overpressure during testing. These levels are set at 6,500, 10,000, and 15,000 psi. These can be set by a three-way valve for manual operations. The SmartMonitor will require the pressure setting to be set when starting the system.
The unit is mounted within a weather-resistant container certified in accordance with DNV 2.7-1 and BS EN12079. All controls, reels, and tanks are mounted inside the container behind secure, lockable doors. Pipe fittings, tubing, and fasteners are made from stainless steel.
