6. Hydrostatic pressure test
Hydrostatic test pressure is calculated by the formula:
p =20 × S × T

D
where:
  • p = hydrostatic test pressure, in bar
  • D = specified outside diameter, mm
  • S = stress, in N/mm², equal to a percentage of minimum yield limit specified for the respective steel grade
  • T = minimum specified wall thickness, in mm
Test pressure must not exceed 207 bar.
Test pressure must be maintained for at least:
  • 5 sec for pipes with outside diameter ≤ 457 mm
  • 10 sec for pipes with outside diameter > 457 mm
7. Other quality checks
  • non-destructive TVX checks along the length of welded seam up to 102 mm from the ends. The end zone and the repaired ones are XR and / or US checked.
  • ultrasonic non-destructive checking of tubes in the technological line
  • tensile testing of base material
  • impact bend testing of base material at 20 °C *
  • tensile testing of seam
  • bend testing of seam
  • checking of chemical analysis on pipe *
* At customer's request

III. Protection, marking, documents, delivery
  • the pipes are delivered unprotected
  • the pipes are delivered with bevelled ends to an angle of 30°C ± 5°C keeping a front ring of 1,50 ± 0,79 mm
  • each pipe will be marked - stencilled and painted at about 305 mm from one of the ends
  • each lot of pipes will be accompanied by the mill test certificate according to EN 10204/DIN 50049
  • the delivery will be made by railway, truck or ship
