HYDROTEST

Hydrostatic testing is a commonly accepted approach to test pipelines. If a pipeline were to fail during testing with water, you essentially have a large water leak. That's because water isn't compressible like air or gas; its energy when released dissipates quickly.

Hydrostatic testing is safe and a commonly accepted approach to test pipelines. Depending on the location of staging areas at both ends of the pipe segment to be tested, visible evidence of the work may include

IMPORTANCE OF HYDROTESTING

H

ydrostatic pressure testing is one of several methods a pipeline company may use to reconfirm the structural integrity safety of its natural gas pipeline.

The test involves filling a pipeline segment with water until it is at a pressure that is higher than the pipeline will ever operate with natural gas. This allows the pipeline company to validate the safe operating pressure of the pipeline and ensure that the line is structurally sound.

PT. BIRAWA ADHI PRATAMA provides hydro testing for pressure retaining equipment used in pipelines. Save yourself the cost of uncertainty when installing new equipment into pipelines and prevent a leak before it ever happens by certifying your equipment and starting the cradle to grave documentation with our hydro test package.

We are also accommodating to any customer witnessing that is required for the equipment.

Benefits

  • + During the hydrostatic test, the water pressure levels inside the pipeline are increased to levels higher than those the pipe will experience under actual operations.
  • + This provides the gas company with important information about the operating safety margin for the pipeline.
  • + The hydrostatic test offers proof of the pipe strength by identifying flaws and allowing for repairs to be made before the pipe is placed in service.
  • + The pressure test can be performed where alternative testing methods are not possible.
