(OP)
can i consider suction line and discharge line of pump in the same test package (material class and hydro test pressure is same )?

RE: can i consider suction line and dis

It is possible provided you isolate the pump. Since pumps have seals and glands which are not 100% leakproof you need to isolate the pump.Also normally pumps have suction nozzle rating less than discharge nozzle rating.

RE: can i consider suction line and dis

Sakib, not sure what you are asking - can you be more specific.
Do you want to test the inlet pipework, discharge pipework and pump together, as a complete unit?

It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. (Sherlock Holmes - A Scandal in Bohemia.)

RE: can i consider suction line and dis

Typically, the testing of the piping is isolated from the equipment due to the different requirements of the Code and Standard. The Project may prepare a testing plan with a sketch to show the proper isolations of the equipment from the Suct & Disch piping, the required testing pressure, and adequate vents and drain for the test.
