  56. 56. Fabricated Spool Testing Spool Testing is normally used to verify quality of fabrication joints (if applicable).  Test pressure determination: 1.5 times of design pressure of the weakest component on the spool.  Recommended Test Duration: 10 minutes  Special end blind/plug required for variety of spool end configuration  Limitation: Some fabricated spools could not be tested due to end configuration and size :  Spool with “Taper Male” end,  Spool with QL Female and Taper Female and greater than 16”  …….Bondstrand Bonder Training forPTSC M&C - 2009 56
  57. 57. System Hydro-testing System Hydrotesting is carried out on installed piping system to verify fabricated joints, site joints, as well as the integrity of the installed piping system.  Prior to Hydro-Testing  All piping supports must be completed;  For underground piping, sufficient partial backfill and temporary block must be in place to prevent excessive movement;  High point vents / low point drains in place;  Removing/isolating components that shall be excluded from hydro-testing;Bondstrand Bonder Training forPTSC M&C - 2009 57
  58. 58. System Hydro-testing  Test Pressure  1.5 times of design pressure  1 hour holding minimum, or sufficient time to carry out line check, or project specification whichever is longer  Testing Equipment  Quick closing valve and booster pump without suitable control shall not be used, to avoid surge;  Pressure gauges and instrument must be calibrated;  Appropriate pressure gauges shall be selected, the test pressure shall be between 30% to 75% of reading range  If possible, pressure recorder shall be used;Bondstrand Bonder Training forPTSC M&C - 2009 58
  59. 59. System Hydro-testing  Hydro-Testing  Pressure build up process:  The test pressure shall be raised over a period of 30minutes of longer.  Slowly and gradually to allow for equalizing for strain, and also in stages to allow for inspection.  Inspection  Instrument reading  Visual inspection of joints, pipes and fittings  24 hour holding @ 1.1 × design pressure (ISO14692:4)  Acceptance criteria  No sign of leaking or weeping  No significant pressure lostBondstrand Bonder Training forPTSC M&C - 2009 59
  60. 60. System Hydro-testing  Possible causes of pressure change  Effect of joint expansion and material creep;  Effect of temperature (Morning, afternoon, night, under sun, and so on), take precaution to prevent over- pressure  Other Concerns  Glycol antifreeze shall be added when test is carry out in subzero temperature.  Instrument to prevent from buckling in case of sudden depressurization  Safety aspects, such as qualified operator, signs and notices, operation procedures …. Shall be in placed. Reference: AME/INS-004 – “Hydro-Testing Procedure for Bondstrand GRE / GRV Pipe”Bondstrand Bonder Training forPTSC M&C - 2009 60
