Riser Annulus Test Kit

Innovation is our core

Regularly check integrity with your own annulus test kit

For businesses within the oil and gas industry, annulus testing is vital to the safety and security of subsea operations. As well as offering in-situ annulus testing, we also know that working with limited space available can make it difficult to accommodate the one to two engineers required when testing the annulus of flexible pipelines. Our annulus test kits are ideal for businesses looking to conduct their own riser inspections.

The kit comes complete with all of the necessary equipment you need to test the annulus of flexible risers. By ensuring the outer sheath integrity and identifying corrosion, you can take preventative measures when required and maintain the service life of your equipment.

The annulus testing kit capabilities

Annulus testing kits are designed to be portable at roughly the size of hand luggage, but this doesn’t mean compromising on results. Our kits provide a fast, efficient, and highly accurate reading, with an extensive range of capabilities.

  • Positive pressure testing and negative pressure testing
  • No external power source required
  • Gas sampling
  • ATEX rated for classified areas
  • Test ‘live’ production pipes

The riser annulus test equipment comes complete with all necessary kit to allow the operator to get accurate annulus test results. Our kits have been designed so that the annulus test can be undertaken during pipe operation. By testing the flexible riser integrity, you can identify future problems and prevent significant damage from being caused.
