Pressure test ǀ Mannesmann Line Pipe

The pressure loss may amount to: The pressure must be brought back to the test level at regular intervals and in any case after dvgq drop of 0. The water loss method see DVGW Worksheet W can be used as an equivalent alternative to the pressure loss method described above.

Determines the amount of air still in the pipeline. Carry out as specified by the planner Main test: 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 pressure test is carried out in dvg maximum of three steps.


To stabilize the pipeline section when the soil has finally settled and the cement-mortar lining has absorbed sufficient water. The pressure loss may amount to:.

The pressure test must be carried out in compliance with the requirements laid down in dvtw relevant rules and regulations, e. Water absorption in the cement-mortar pores may initially cause a drop in pressure even if the pipeline is completely watertight.

The joints need not be covered by dvggw. The pipeline is to be tested over its entire length or, if necessary, in sections.

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.

The test sections must be defined so that:. For this reason it is advisable to carry out the pressure test over a period of at least 24 hours.

Pressure test

There are two ddvgw test methods: Each pipeline must be subjected to a pressure test after it 46 been laid. Drucken Teilen Xing Twitter. It is carried out over a period of 3 hours for pipes up to DN 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.

The test sections must be defined so that: This applies in particular to pipelines with mechanical socket connections. Before starting the test, the pipeline must be slowly and evenly filled with water at a rate of about 0.
