Medium sized Hyperbaric Chamber
- Purpose of the device
This instrument can reproduce pressure conditions of the deep sea down to a 15,000m depth. It is used for fatigue tests, pressure-tolerance tests, and operation tests for various deep-sea instruments and materials, to increase the reliability of deep-sea instruments and materials.
0.6m (inner radius) × 1.6m (height) (0.49 in total volume)
- Instrumental capacity
|Pressure cyclic device
||Maximum cyclic pressure
||Pyramidal wave, trapezoidal wave
- Monitoring device and gauges
The hyperbaric chamber is monitored during the experiment, and the gauges record pressure data automatically.
- Pressure tests for instruments using in deep sea.
- Pressure tests for housing, buoy, etc.
