KW Designed Solutions are working on a number of new projects currently, within the oil and gas sector as well as others, aiming to increase its presence and growth in new market sectors.

An industry leader in the manufacture, development and supply of magnesium products to the technology industry worldwide has engaged with KW Designed Solutions for the design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of an innovative pressure testing system including a manual pressure control system to facilitate the testing of components used within the global fracking industry. KW Design Solutions' vertically orientated threaded closure pressure vessel was proposed and decided upon which has an easy to handle, safe, reliable single operator closure utilising a unique smooth-form thread and low friction coating, allowing effortless opening and closing of the pressure vessel without the need for tooling.

A manual pressure control system (MPCS) will allow the operator to control the fill, purge and drain valves, it also incorporates a pressure relief valve (PRV) for added safety and a pressure transmitter (PT) for data logging. Maximum operating pressure of 1034 bar (15,000 psi) and design temperature from 0 to 50C.

KW Designed Solutions have also started a new project with an industry leader in the development and implementation of innovative metering solutions to the water industry. A 122ltr volume pressure vessel will be provided with an operating pressure of 5 bar and a working temperature of between 20C and 60C. The pressure vessel will have both temperature and pressure control systems.

Finally, the testing department of one of the worlds largest oilfield services companies has placed an order for the supply of a pressure testing system to facilitate the testing of subsea electrical harnesses. KW Designed Solutions' actuated chock closure pressure vessel was chosen for this requirement which will provide the operator with a simple and quick opening and closing functionality. The pressure vessel will have a maximum operating pressure of 690 bar and a volume of 635 litres. Also included within the scope of supply will be a fully automated pressure control system (PLC/HMI) with data logging capabilities.

KW Designed Solutions work out of their 800sq/ft facility in Chorley, Lancashire.
