  Reg. 377, Reg. 378

Hydraulic test of boilers for registration

Every boiler shall be hydraulically tested in the presence of an Inspector.




Reg. 378

Preparation for hydraulic tests

a)

The chest of all mountings subject to the steam pressure shall be in place and shut tight or blank flanged.
b) The safety valves should invariably be removed and the chest opening blank flanged.
c) The attachment for the Inspector’s pressure gauge shall be in order.
d) All doors shall be properly jointed and tightened up. The boiler shall be completely filled with water, care being taken to allow all air to escape and, if possible, a preliminary test not exceeding the working pressure of the boiler shall be taken before the Inspector’s visit, to test the tightness of the joints.
e) When a boiler is hydraulically tested for the first time, it shall be entirely cleared of lagging or brickwork; at subsequent tests the lagging or brickwork, or portions thereof, shall be removed if required by the Inspector.

Provided that the Inspector may, at his discretion, allow the lagging and brick work to remain in situ, in case of boilers where the covered parts have been fabricated and tested before erection in position.
