The pressure test facility operated by Nautilus Marine Service can generate pressure up to 1300 bar (18.850 psi), which is more than the pressure at the sea floor at the deepest points of the oceans.

Nautilus Marine Service operates its pressure test facility primarily for demanding tests on VITROVEX® glass enclosures and provides in terms of speed, accuracy and robustness advantages over conventional pressure testing equipment.
Since the pressure test facility is also available to external clients, the Canadian company RBR recently accomplished a series of calibration tests under seawater conditions for their latest RBRconcerto³ CTD probes to ensure the highest accuracy of these oceanographic instruments.
