Hydrostatic Testing Of Pipelines
This invention relates generally to strain testing and, more particularly, to the hydrostatic testing of pipelines. Our hydrostatic testing technicians have been trained on the Galiso manufacturing unit headquarter in Montrose , Colorado .
Hydrostatic testing of a pipeline could also be carried out to verify the structural integrity of the pipeline and to adjust to relevant federal and/or state laws. Conventional hydrostatic testing entails filling and pressurizing the pipeline with water. Measurement devices, corresponding to round chart recorders and deadweight strain gauges, are linked to the pipeline to measure variables such because the temperature and inner strain of the pipeline. The measurement data contained in the check log may be used to perform pressure loss/acquire fee and temperature/pressure reconciliation calculations, and to plot stress as a operate of volume so as to present an indication of pipe yield.
Backed by sturdy after sales service and support, Jetstream product choices embrace a complete line of skid- and trailer-mounted excessive pressure waterblasting pump items, management guns, valves, hoses, substitute elements and nozzles. In addition to month-to-month and annual inspections, the NFPA requires ABC fireplace extinguishers be hydrostatically examined every 12 years.
In addition to outputting the info and the processed data to the output units 72, the pc sixty two outputs the info and the processed information to the 2-means satellite tv for pc link 70 which, in turn, transmits the data to the satellite 26. The satellite tv for pc 26 transmits the info to the server 30 via the satellite gateway 28. This information is ready to be seen in real-time or near-real-time on one or more of the consumer interfaces 32 by downloading the info from the server 30 to every consumer interface 32 via the info community 34. It will be understood by those of strange ability in the art that any or the entire foregoing information transmissions may be encrypted.
In addition, for our visible inspection, we've available the brand new Visual Plus / Eddy Current Tets Equipment. Luxfer ( Scuba cylinders producer) has issued new ruling on 7/17/00 for inspection of Luxfer Aluminum Scuba Cylinders. Luxfer mandates the use Eddy Current Testing and additional list Visual Eddy as an permitted unit. Therefore with Island Equipment Company your Scuba cylinders are within the arms of the professionals. The hydro test is executed by skilled personnel by utilizing chlorinated water (or other colored fluids) to check the existence of leakages in strain-containing equipment.
Hydrostatic testing involves subjecting the hearth extinguisher cylinder to pressures that exceed its score to make sure it's nonetheless capable of sustaining the pressure necessary to discharge properly within the event of a fire. In view of the foregoing, it is clear that the hydrostatic testing of the pipeline 12 may be successfully monitored in actual time or near-real-time from a single location, that is, the cell station 18. In addition, the overall hydrostatic check system 10 operation may be monitored from wherever knowledge network 34 access is on the market. As discussed above, the computer sixty two receives and processes knowledge from the measurement tools fifty eight and the RTUs 22.
