Seals will be suitable for stuffing box pressure during operation considering maximum suction pressure and for a maximum
1.2
allowable working pressure of the pump in static condition.
1.3 Test Fluid Selection & Application Group will be as per Table 7 of API 682. Propane/LPG will be used as a test fluid.

1.5 SQT will be carried out as per Fig. 33 of API 682 but in the condensed form of 4+4+1 hrs.
1.6 Pressure Cyclic Test will be carried out. However, Temperature Cyclic Test is not applicable.
For testing of the Seals for MAWP in static condition, water will be used as a media as Propane/LPG cannot be used for such
1.7 high pressure during the test.
1.8 The Propane Testing will be carried out at Eagle Burgmann, Japan.
Propane Testing in Japan can be offered only in the months of November, December & January. The Pump OEMs are
