Line pipe is hydrotested to at least the API 5L specified minimum test pressure. NEW SINDA endeavors to hydrostatically test to 100% specified minimum yield strength (SMYS) where possible. Pipe is tested with the weld line facing up, and the trained HydroTest operator visually monitors the entire weld line during testing.
NEW SINDA provides our primary nondestructive testing for quality assurance through the ultrasonic evaluation of the entire weld for each pipe.
The performance of the equipment and the application of this procedure is the responsibility of NEW SINDA's qualified ASNT-TC-1A, Level III. All additional NEW SINDA personnel who perform this testing are certified to ASNT-TC-1A, Level II.
