HYDRO TEST PROCEDURES


4.1. PREPARATION
4.1.1 The production supervisor shall be responsible for the preparation of hydro test.
All welding heat treatment, dimensional inspection and NDT shall be completed
and complied with the code, specification and drawing prior the pressure testing.
4.1.2 The authorized inspector and / or client representative should have reviewed all
radiographs. NDT reports and completed internal and external visual inspection.
4.1.3 The vessel shall be thoroughly cleaned inside and outside. This shall include the
removal of any spatter, flux and grease.

4.2.1. Generally the test media is clean water. Additional Code or clients requirement
shall specified in hydrostatic test specification.
4.2.2 Test temperature shall be determined from the applicable code or client
specification.
4.3 HYDRO TEST
In order to ensure the structural adequacy, hydrostatic testing of tanks shall be required in
connection with the approval of the testing design. Hydrostatic testing is also to verify the
structural adequacy of the design and the water tightness of the tanks structure by means
of water pressure, This testing to ensure no permanent deformation at all section of tank
during and after testing. Hydrostatic testing is to consist of head of water to the level
specified in table below
