Water absorption in the cement-mortar pores may initially cause a drop in pressure even if the pipeline is completely watertight.

The test sections must be defined 49 that: The pipeline is to be tested over its entire length or, if necessary, in sections. Drucken Teilen Xing Twitter. Each pipeline must be subjected to a pressure test after it has been laid.

The water loss method see DVGW Worksheet W can be used as an equivalent alternative to the pressure loss method described above. To stabilize the pipeline section when the soil has finally settled and the cement-mortar lining has absorbed sufficient water.


The pressure must be brought back to the test level at regular intervals and in any case after a drop of b.

Hydrostatic testing — CEPS a.s.

This applies in particular to pipelines with mechanical socket connections. Carry out as specified by the planner Main test: The pressure test must be carried out in compliance with the requirements laid down in the relevant rules and regulations, e. For this reason it is advisable to carry out the pressure test over a period of at least 24 hours.

The pressure loss may amount to: Before the pressure test can be carried out, the pipeline must be covered with backfill material so as to avoid shifts in position, which could cause leaks. The joints need not be covered by backfill.

Pressure test

The pressure loss may amount to:. The pressure test dvg carried out in a maximum of three steps. Determines the amount of air still in the pipeline.


Pressure tests must be carried out by qualified personnel with the relevant knowledge of pipeline engineering, the execution of pressure tests, the measurement techniques and the applicable safety regulations. Before starting the test, the pipeline must be slowly and evenly filled with water at a rate of about 0. It is carried out over a period of 3 hours for pipes up to DN The test sections must be defined so that:.

There are two basic test methods: The main test is a test of the entire system, and in particular of the watertightness and proper execution and installation of the pipes, fittings, etc.
