Reg. 46
MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION

SEAMLESS CARBON STEEL PIPES FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE SERVICE FOR DESIGN METAL TEMPERATURES NOT EXCEEDING 454 DEGREE C (850 DEGREE F)

Hydraulic Test

(i) Each pipe shall be tested by the manufacturer and shall withstand a hydraulic pressure to one and half time the design pressure, but not greater than pressure calculated by the formula given below.  In the absence of working pressure  indicated in the Test Certificate then the test pressure indicated in the Test Certificate divided by 1.5 shall be the maximum working pressure.

                      P = 2St/D  

where   P  = test pressure

            D = specified outside diameter of the pipe

            t = specified wall thickness of the pipe

S = stress which shall be taken as 40% of the minimum tensile strength at room temperature.

(ii)  Notwithstanding anything contained in the above clause, the hydraulic test at the maker's works may be dispensed with provided that the pipes are subject to non destructive testing by an appropriate method like Ultrasonic or Eddy Current or Stray flux testing.
