API Specification for a Hydraulic Pressure Intensifier

  1. Apr 9, 2012 #1
    Greetings,

    We purchased a hydraulic pressure intensifier. It works by using piston areas.. so a high pressure piston and a low pressure piston causing reciprocation and thus intensification downstream based on the pistons ratio. (has internal check valves, a sequencing valve, and a pressure relief valve)

    I am trying to find API specifications (or any other) that will guide me in writing a qualification test procedure for the intensifier.

    Mainly looking for cycle testing and endurance of the intensifier over long term operation. I don't want to make up a cycle test based on what I think might be a good measure of endurance and thus following a standard would be extremely helpful.

    This is to be used subsea for pressurizing accumulators.

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Thank You

    Regards
