testing glass apparatus

After construction, reconstruction or repair and before putting into operation, the assembled apparatus should be tested. Individual types of tests are specified in the contract documents, namely:

  • check of assembled apparatus (constructional test) – it is used for ascertaining that overall realization and material used correspond to the submitted contract documents and agreed-upon requirements of the customer, and preparedness for pressure test is checked
  • pressure tests – they serve for verifying pressure resistance of the piping
  • test of temperature change – it verifies behaviour of the piping during temperature fluctuations
  • tightness tests – it checks the glass piping for tightness.

A protocol is to be elaborated about the carried out tests.
