The pressure loss may amount to: Pressure tests must be carried out by qualified ddvgw with the relevant knowledge of pipeline engineering, the execution of pressure tests, the measurement techniques and the applicable safety regulations.
Before the pressure test can be carried out, the pipeline must be covered with backfill material so as to avoid shifts in position, which f cause leaks.
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 pressure loss may amount to:.

For this reason it is advisable to carry out the pressure test over a period of at least 24 hours. The test sections must be defined so that: The joints need not be covered by backfill.
The pressure must be brought back to the test level at regular intervals and in any case after a drop of 0. It is carried out over a period of 3 hours for pipes up to DN There are two basic test methods: The pressure test must be carried out rvgw compliance with the requirements laid down in the relevant rules and regulations, e. To stabilize the pipeline section when the soil has finally settled and the cement-mortar lining has absorbed sufficient water.
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. Water absorption in the cement-mortar pores may initially cause a drop in pressure even if the pipeline is completely watertight.
Drucken Teilen Xing Twitter. Before starting the test, the pipeline must be slowly and evenly dvge with water at a rate of about 0.
The pressure test is carried out in a maximum of three steps. Each pipeline must be subjected to a pressure test after it has been laid.
Hydrostatic testing — CEPS a.s.
The test sections must be defined so that:. The pipeline is to be tested over its entire length or, if necessary, in sections.
Carry out as specified by the planner Main test: This applies in particular to pipelines with mechanical socket connections.
