E Terminology for Nondestructive Examinations Summary of Test Method4. Pressure is slowlyapplied to the liquid until the required pressure is reached.

Thispressure is held for the required time at which point thecomponent is inspected visually to locate leaks or the pressureon the gage is recorded to determine the components totalleakage.

It is not sensitiveenough for leak testing when toxic or explosive gas is expectedto be retained under pressure. New systems should be tested prior to painting, where practi-cal.


The liquid test media mayclog small leaks causing later tests to be inaccurate. The minimumtemperature of the liquid should be 16C 61F. If water is used as a test fluid it should bedeionized.

ASTM E – 13() Standard Practice for Hydrostatic Leak Testing

Originallypublished as E Last previous edition E BoxColumbus, OH The metal should be a minimum of 16C 61F prior to the application of pressure. Pressure gages should be calibrated before eachtest. Thegage must read at least 1.

See Terminology E for a description of terms. If more than one gage is used, one may be arecording gage. At least one gage which is used for acceptanceof the test shall be calibrated within 30 days prior to use. Oneindicating gage must be easily visible to the operator control-ling the pressure throughout the pressurizing and testing cycle. Thereafter slowly increase the pressure to the final testpressure.

Examination for leakage shallbe made of all accessible joints and connections, attachmentwelds where practical, and weep holes for paddings andattachments.

Also inspect the area around inaccessible leakagesites. The magnitudeof leak shall be described in terms of: The air vents need to be opened during draining toadmit air and prevent collapsing of the test system.

As a minimum the testpressure should be held for 10 min and the maximum timeshould be limited to 2 h. Pretest to Locate Gross Leaks A minimum pressure is kPa 25 psi forthis test.

No round-robin tests have been made to deter-mine the precision and reliability of this method. The bias ofthe test is dependent on the operational procedure used and thetraining and qualification of the operators.


No statement ismade about the precision or bias of the procedure since theresult merely states whether there is conformance to the criteriafor success specified in the test method. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any suchpatent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.
