Yekaterinburg to hold hydraulic tests

Yekaterinburg will soon begin hold hydraulic tests of heating high pressure for the upcoming heating season.

The tests will be held from May to August, Just Media reports.

The testing will be conducted in six parts, beginning with crimping return piping 15 on May 17, followed by crimping the feed pipe from June 6 through June 7, the crimping of the feed pipe 27 on June 28, the crimping of feed pipe 17 on July 19, the pipeline pressure testing filing from Aug. 7 through Aug. 9, and finishing up with the crimping of return piping from Aug. 28 through Aug. 30.

The crimping staff of the Sverdlovsk branch of TGK-9 usually conducts tests during the night from minding to 6 a.m., during which time the test parameters of hot water will be reduced, with the temperature of the coolant in the network lowered, according to Just Media.

Specialized mobile equipment will aid in the process, which is the same machinery that was used during the summer maintenance by the company last year. The equipment was manufactured in accordance with the Sverdlovsk Heat Supply Company at the JSC Mashprom in Yekaterinburg.

The equipment will soon eliminate the pressure testing of heating systems with heat sources, like the New Sverdlovsk and Sverdlovsk CHP, meaning that there will be no more disruptions in the hot water supply for customers, according to Just Media.
