Hydrostatic testing of piping designed for internal pressure The minimum hydrostatic test pressure at any point in the system shall be as follows. (1) (2) Not less than 1-1/2 times of the design pressure. For a design temperature above the test temperature, the minimum test pressure shall be as calculated by the following equation.

Where: Pt = minimum calculated hydrostatic test pressure (kg/cm2) P = internal design pressure (kg/cm2) St = allowable stress at test temperature (kg/ cm2) S = allowable stress at design temperature (kg/ cm2) See Table I, Appendix A, IASME 831.3 1 When St and S are equal, test pressure is 1.5 x P. Where the test pressure as defined above would produce a stress in excess of the specified minimum yield strength at test temperature, the test pressure shall be reduced to a pressure at which the stress will not exceed the specified minimum yield strength at the test temperature. The maximum test pressure at which the stress produced will not exceed the specified minimum yield strength may be calculated by the following equation:

Hydrostatic test pressure shall be maintained for a sufficient length of time to visually determine if there are any leaks, but not less than ten (10) minutes. Test pressure shall not be required to be maintained in excess of two hours after notification to CONTRACTOR. After completion of the test, pressure shall be released by opening the valve gradually so as not to endanger personnel or damage equipment. As a rule, pressure releasing rate shall be 300 kg/ cm2/hr. For piping line for which pressure releasing rate is to be specified, refer to specific job requirements.
