WOM Successful!

WOM is pleased to announce the successful testing of a 3 1/16” 15K Subsea  Gate Valve to API 17D specifications at a depth of 16,000 ft. The valve, which was tested in March,2015 at Southwest Research Institute, is the first WOM subsea valve to be tested and approved at this depth.

The valve was exposed to 7,120 psi external pressure and the full 15,000 psi working pressure during the testing in which 210 close-to-open-to-close  cycles were performed. The valve was required to hold pressure with no water ingress nor indications or leakage during the test cycle, a requirement which it passed successfully and without incident.
