2.Pressure test relief valve(s) of adequate capacity set to relieve at 5% above the test pressure shall be installed unless the test pressure is less than 85% SMYS at which time it can be set at 10% above the test pressure. Sizing of these relief valves used for testing shall follow the requirements of API RP 520, Part 1. The relief valve(s) shall be tested, dated, and tagged within one week prior to the pressure test for new construction projects, and within one month for maintenance operations.
3. Before employing the pressure testing manifold in the actual system pressure test, it shall be separately pressure tested to at least 1.2 times the system test pressure but not less than the discharge pressure of the pump used for the pressure testing.

4.Identify the maximum test pressure to be used, as determined by standard.
Identify the type of pipe to be tested
Maximum aggregate length of pipe to be tested at one time is 400 feet.
Examine all connections prior to test to ensure proper tightness.
Determine the pressure rating for all connected fitting & devices ensure they are rated for maximum test pressure.
Secure a blind flange or cap suitable for the system rated pressure on all
Plug all test drain & vent ports 
Calibration certificates for Manifold,Pressure guage,Relief valve
Test certificates validity for relief valve 1 week
Test certificates validity for pressure guage 1 month
Fill the water in the system until water out from vent air bubbles should not come after filling with the help of hydraulic pump start pressurize the system 10-15 % of test pressure hold on for 15mins if no leaks again start pressure to 40% hold for 15mins if no leakage 100% pressurize mention start time of pressurized system, maintain the test duration and walk through the system  if no leaks after test duration open the vent and drain for releasing the pressure.

15.It is guide line meet the minimum quality standards prior to test.

16.Non conformance report.

17. Eccentric reducer is used at Pump suction to avoid cavitation. To maintain (BOP) in Rack      Concentric reducer pump discharge,vertical pipe line.

18.2-6 inch dia 1 ¾ angle,8-24 inch dia 2 1/2 inch angle 26-40 dia 1 ¾ angle further refer Bondstrand guidelines.
19. A  “Gasket" material is a term used when referring to a gasket material that is easily compressed under a low bolt load. This term has been used to distinguish the difference from a metallic gasket. A soft gasket material can be selected from a large variety of rubbers and compressed non-asbestos sheet products, PTFE, flexible graphite and high temperature sheet.
20.Post indicator valve.
21. a) Vertical bolt hole offset : ± 2.4 mm
b) Horizontal bolt hole offset : ± 2.4 mm
c) Rotational offset : ± 2.4 mm
d) Flange face tilt across diameter: 0.025 mm per 25 mm (0.001 inch per inch) of flange outside diameter up to a maximum of 0.672 mm (0.030 inch), and 0.254mm (0.010 inch) for all flanges with an outside diameter less than 10 inches.
e) Flange face separation, gasket thickness : ± 1.6 mm
f) Combination of vertical, horizontal and rotational offset : ± 3.2

27. New systems after strength tests and prior to initial start-up:
For systems with maximum operating pressures greater than 6.894 MPa (1000 psi), a leak test with inert gas, followed by a service test, shall be conducted at the maximum operating pressure of the piping system. Oil flowlines, trunklines, testlines and water injection lines are excluded from this requirement.
