ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA Preparation for Testing Test Pack is available for verification and review. (Refer to SAIC-L-2001). Pre-Test Punchlisting complete and Test Pack Flow Chart signed accordingly. (Refer to SAIC-L-2001). All pre-test punchlist designated as "A" items are cleared. (NOTE: "A"-items are pre-test punchlists required to be completed prior to pressure testing .) Flanges that will not be disturbed after the pressure test are marked/identified and tightened WITH the approved SAIC-L-2014 & SATR-L-2001. Flushing or internal Cleanliness of system is complete. Test Package Flow chart signed-off accordingly. Components which interfere with filling, venting, draining or flushing shall not be installed until after line flushing and pressure testing are completed. These include orifice plates, flow nozzles, sight glasses, venturies, positive displacement and turbine meters and other in-line equipment. Equipment Excluded from Pressure Test The following equipment are excluded from the in-situ pressure testing of the tested system. a) Rotating machinery, such as pumps, turbines and compressors; b) Strainers and filter elements; c) Rupture disks and pressure relief valves; d) Locally mounted indicating pressure gauges, where the test pressure will exceed their scale range; e) Equipment that cannot be drained; f) Instrument Devices. Temporary supports are installed if they were determined to be required per SAES-L-150. Expansion joints and spring hangers or spring supports are provided with temporary restraints where needed to prevent excessive travel or deformation under the test loads.

All joints including welded joints are left exposed for visual leak detection A10 during the strength test. (NOTE: This excludes joints that will be subject to 24-hr recorded test. ) Work permit is obtained for all pressure testing and associated work within restricted areas as covered in G.I. 2.100, Work Permit System. Equipment and appurtenances that are not adequate for test pressures are isolated.
