If the pressure does not fall, then the system is tight. If the pressure does fall, then the leak must be found and repaired. Testing can be done using a soap solution if gas is being used as the testing medium. The solution is squirted on to the flanges that were parted and then put back together. Any gas leak will create bubbles in the solution. STRENGTH TESTS Nondestructive methods to determine thickness loss, which should be performed before conducting a strength pressure test. If the vessel or piping has been modified in any way, then a strength test is required in order to ensure the vessel’s integrity.

5 barg. This is the design pressure or pressure rating of the vessel as measured at the top of the vessel. 2. The process engineer’s requirements are transmitted to the vessel engineer who designs the vessel using standard sizes for wall thickness and flange size, thus generating the MAWP value. Generally, MAWP will be higher than the design pressure because wall thicknesses are in discrete sizes and the designer 33 34 CHAPTER 2 Maintenance and inspection 3. 4. 5. 6. will always choose a value greater than that called for.
