For pneumatic testing of circuits, access to the area of the test shall be limited to only the personnel directly involved in the test or personnel involved in the inspection and monitoring.

During the pressure test the total circuit shall be inspected and tested for any leaks. If any leaks are found on flanged, threaded, plugged or welded joints the system pressure shall be totally released prior to any rectification work starting. Disciplinary action shall be taken against any individual and/or supervisor authorizing and/or undertaking work on the pressurized system.

For flanged joint testing during pneumatic testing of circuits the flange joints shall be hermetically sealed by means of adhesive paper tape and a pinhole made in the tape to permit easy detection of leaks.

2.2

Circuit Monitoring and Checking

The following equipment and components shall not be included in the system, and this equipment shall be isolated from the test section.

PNEUMATIC TEST PROCEDURE

 

8.1

Prior testing start, Supervisor/Tester is to set up the exclusion zone, complete with signs, three languages, prior to pressure being raised on the system. Also marshals shall be positioned at all exclusion barriers to ensure no personnel enter the exclusion zone.

8.2

During pneumatic testing care must be exercised not to exceed the specified design pressure by more than ten (10) percent, also see Para. 2.1 (maximum test pressure to ne marked on the Test pressure gauge, prior to pressurized the system)

8.3

When pneumatic testing at over 2kg/Cm 2 , a preliminary check at 2kg/Cm 2 shall be made to locate major leaks. The pressure shall be increased in gradual steps of 4kg/Cm 2 or 10 percent of the test pressure, whichever is greater.

8.4

A

double

block

and

vent

valve

arrangement

shall

be

included

in

the

pressurizing line to the system being tested. A test pressure gauge shall be

downstream of the double block. After each pressure step has been reached, close the block valves and open vent valve to atmosphere. If after a 10 minutes period the “Step Pressure” has held, proceed to the next “Step Pressure”. If not, examine the entire system for leakage.

8.5

The pressure shall be held at design pressure for 10 minutes prior to raising the pressure to the test pressure. At test pressure shall be held for 30 minutes during which time to access within the exclusion zone will be allowed.

point access within the exclusion zone will be allowed to the testing team only and the inspection of the joints shall be undertaken. All flange, threaded, welded joints and attachment shall be inspected with a proprietary testing solution. The design pressure shall be maintained until inspections of all joints are completed.

8.7

Any leak identified shall be marked with marker pen and the system shall be depressurized prior to any repair or rectification work being undertaken.

8.8

Depressurization of the system on completion of the inspection shall be by nominated vent valves taking into consideration any none return valves included within system.

8.9

All instrument shall be disconnected from the test system prior to the test commencing.

9.0

REPORTS AND TEST RECORDS

9.1

As a minimum, the Subcontractor shall maintain records of all pressure tests, records of all welding operations, including welder, numbers, and post weld heat treatment charts referenced to weld numbers, records of all hardness tests and records of all certification records.

9.2

All records shall be submitted and approved by the CONTRACTOR and shall be submitted to the Client/Consultant.

9.3

All records shall be submitted and approved by the CONTRACTOR and shall be submitted to the CLIENT/CONSULTANT.
