Under a United States Navy contract to SAIC., BEP designed the required pressure vessel, quick opening hardware for the MK48 MOD7 Heavyweight Torpedo hydrostatic test system
The test chamber skid with the loading / unloading skid is roughly 6’ W x 30’ OAL while the attached water supply skid is roughly 8’ x 8’.
Test vessel Operating Pressure: 2500 PSIG at 100°F MAWP: 3000 PSIG MDMT: 32°F
The test chamber shall has an extendable rail system with provisions to load and secure the units under test. The system was fully integrated with operator friendly controls and all electrical and electro-pneumatic controls were mounted in an IP64/NEMA 4 enclosure and met the requirements of NFPA 70 (NEC)
A Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) was performed at BEPeterson’s facility prior to acceptance and shipment. BEPeterson was responsible for field installation and training at the jobsite.
Glycol reservoir vessels for the ongoing U.S Navy SEWIP – Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (see attachment). Multiple pressure vessels are annually being produced to support fleet deployment of this program. Production vessels are being produced under contract to Leonardo DRS. The pressure vessels are a necessary component in the construction of the SEWIP Block 3 System.
BEPeterson has produced several test vessel systems for Teledyne. These systems are utilized to test submarine electronic cables for the Navy. The pressure vessels have been fitted with QAC – quick opening closures which improve efficency and operator saftey.
Currently on order from General Dynamics is a 28″ OD x 216″ S/L CS pressure chamber designed to 1000 PSI @ 100 Deg F. The test vessel will have a quick opening tool less hinged closure for ease of access and safety. The system is also being designed to accomidate a conveyor system.

BEPeterson has produced several test vessels to both of these companies. They both supply sonic devices to the Navy. The vessels have all been designed to 3000 psi.
