Our team is going to do hydro test

Our team is going to do hydro test

(OP)
Our team is going to do hydro test of pipeline section by section of different length, some of the section has different classes of different thickness but the hydro test pressure calculated based on the lower thickness of pipe plus static head with we can check the integrity of pipeline of lower thickness my concern is how we can the integrity of higher thickness of sane section.
Kindly clear my four.

RE: Our team is going to do hydro test

Please present clear technical information.

Design code
Pressure
Thickness
Elevation

Etc

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

RE: Our team is going to do hydro test

Why wouldn't your hydrotest be suitable for testing the integrity of the higher thickness sections? No matter what code you're following your hydro pressure should be higher than your design pressure. And your design pressure should be greater than or equal to the operating pressure. So if you hydrotest successfully, it doesn't matter the thickness - you've proved that section of piping can handle pressures equal to or greater than the operating pressures. That's all that you're looking for from a hydrotest.
