The pipeline is to be tested over its entire length or, if necessary, in sections.

Pressure tests must be carried out by qualified personnel with the relevant knowledge of pipeline engineering, the execution of pressure tests, the measurement techniques and the applicable safety regulations.

The pressure loss may amount to: Before starting the test, the pipeline must be slowly and evenly filled with water at dfgw rate of about 0.


Hydrostatic testing

Determines the amount of air still in the pipeline. Before the pressure test can be carried out, the pipeline must be covered with backfill material so as to avoid shifts in position, which could cause leaks.

To stabilize the pipeline section when the soil has finally settled and the cement-mortar lining has absorbed sufficient water. The joints need not be covered by backfill.

Hydrostatic testing — CEPS a.s.

Drucken Teilen Xing Twitter. The pressure test must be carried out in compliance with the requirements laid down in the relevant rules and regulations, e. The water dvfw method see DVGW Worksheet W can be used as an equivalent alternative to the pressure loss method described above. The pressure must be brought back to the test level at regular intervals and in any case after a drop of 0.

The main test is a test of the entire system, and in particular of the watertightness and proper execution and installation of the 496, fittings, etc.


Carry out as specified by the planner Main test: There are two basic test methods: This applies in particular to pipelines with mechanical socket connections.

The pressure loss may amount to:. The pressure test is carried out in a maximum of three steps.

It is carried out over dvwg period of 3 hours for pipes up to DN For this reason it is advisable to carry out the pressure test over a period of at least 24 hours. Water absorption in the cement-mortar pores may initially cause a drop in pressure even if the pipeline is completely watertight.

Pressure test

Each pipeline must be subjected to a pressure test after it has been laid. The test sections must be defined so that:. The test sections must be defined so that:
