APPENDIX B
SwRI FACILITY DESCRIPTION
APPENDIX B
1. Test Chamber Description
1.1 Enclosure. The test chamber is located under a 34-foot high roof supported on columns, and
is surrounded on three sides by 8-foot high concrete walls. Portable insulated screens placed on
the four sides form a closed enclosure, as shown in Figure 1. Stainless steel flame baffles are
suspended from the side screens to minimize the effect of wind gusts and to provide a "chimney"
effect to direct the burner flames over the top of the test item.
1.2 Test Item Support. The piping attached to the test item is supported in vises mounted on
pedestals, as shown in the elevation view of Figure 1. The upstream pedestal is fixed. The
downstream pedestal can be adjusted laterally if needed to accommodate a range of sizes.
1.3 Burners. Four 3-inch self-aspirating burners are individually mounted on portable stands, with
adjustable tilt angles. The stands are positioned to provide optimum envelopment of the test item
by the burner flames.
2. Test Item Installation
2.1 Preparation. Upon request, all materials needed for preparation of the valve for testing will be
supplied by SwRI. Assembly will be performed by SwRI personnel per the manufacturer's
instructions.
2.2 Installation. The test item is installed in the test chamber as shown in Figure 1.
d. System Plumbing
3.1 Pressurization System. For low-test pressures 50 psig), a pressurized reservoir is used.
For higher test pressures, a triplex pump is used with an atmospheric reservoir. A back-pressure
regulator is used to control the pump output pressure. Either system can be used while the other is
isolated.
3.2 Downstream System. Piping from the downstream end of the test valve is routed through a
condenser consisting of a copper coil in a running water bath. The discharge from the condenser is
mounted on a swinging arm whose position is set from the control room via the data
acquisition/control system. The first position is over the container in which any discharge during the
burning period is collected. The second position is over another container for collection of any
discharge during the cooldown. The third position is away from both containers.
3.3 Body Cavity Vent and Relief System. The manufacturer will have provided a tapped port in
the topmost part of the test valve body for connection of the body cavity relief system, when
required. The relief system consists of a relief valve, which is actuated at the manufacturer's
recommended maximum body cavity pressure, and a pressure transducer for recording the cavity
pressure, as shown in Figure 1. This system is required for all dual-seated valves, which may trap
liquid in the body cavity when the valve is in the closed position.
3.4 Water Quenching System. API Standard 607, 4th Edition, requires the test valve to be
quenched with water after burner shutoff. A swinging arm, containing six nozzles on a manifold, is
positioned over the test valve for quenChing. The swing arm and water flow are controlled remotely
from the control room via the data acquisition/control system.
.
4. Instrumentation
4.1 Test Pressure. The upstream test pressure is measured with an electrical transducer of
appropriate range tapped into the pressurization line about 20 feet upstream of the test connection,
and at about the same elevation as the test connection.
4.2 Temperature. All temperatures are measured with Type h (Chromel/Alumel) thermocouples
(T/Cs). The flame temperature T/Cs are 1/4" diameter rigid probes with stainless or inconel
sheaths. The thermocouples for sensing body and bonnet temperatures are 1/8" diameter probes
similar to the flame thermocouples. The calorimeters (if required) consist of 1/16" diameter probe
embedded in 1- 1/2" carbon steel cubes. If calorimeters are used, a bare wire thermocouple with
braided ceramic insulation is spot-welded to the test item body, to obtain the body temperature.
4.3 Data Acquisition. A HP 34970A Data Acquisition/Switch Unit is used to log data during the
test and to remotely operate the test equipment. Data is acquired from all sensors every two (2)
seconds. The data acquisition/switch unit is connected to a personal computer in the control room,
which runs software that allows the operator to record and visualize all data and control the test.
At the end of the test, the data is processed to obtain a plot of the temperatures and pressures
during the burn and cooldown.
4.4 Calibration. Pressure transducers are calibrated periodically against traceable voltage
references. The data logger input calibrations are also calibrated periodically against traceable
voltage references. Thermocouple calibrations are assumed to be within standard commercial
tolerances.
4.5 Video. Two video cameras are used to record the tests. One, mounted under the facility roof,
provides an overhead view of the test chamber. It has pan. tilt and zoom controls to enable any
desired view of the test in progress. The other camera is mounted on a pan/tilt mount. at floor level,
for close-up viewing of the collection containers. This camera is also used to observe the valve
during the post-cooldown operational and hydrostatiC tests.
A split-screen video system in the control room allow simultaneous viewing from both camera
angles. The output from both cameras is recorded on a VCR to provide a visual record of the test.
The VCR format is VHS.
