SCHEDULE III(ss. 12, 13, 31 and 34)

    • 1 (1) The test by hydraulic pressure on boilers shall be as follows:

      Test to be applied
      • (a) New boilers that are allowed a working pressure not over 690 kPa

      — Twice the working pressure
      • (b) New boilers that are allowed a working pressure over 690 kPa

      — One and a half times the working pressure plus 345 kPa
      • (c) Boilers that are not new and that are being inspected for the first time

      — One and one-half times the working pressure
      • (d) Boilers that have been lifted, before being reset, and boilers that have undergone important repairs

      — One and one-half times the working pressure
    • (2) The hydraulic test applied at annual inspection and at such other times as are considered necessary by the inspector, except as provided in subsection (1), shall not exceed one and one-half times the working pressure.

  • 2 The tests by hydraulic pressure on boiler mountings shall be as follows:

    Test to be applied
    • (a) All mountings except feed check valves

    — Twice the working pressure
    • (b) Feed check valves

    — Two and one-half times the working pressure

    but in any case the hydraulic test pressure need not be more than 7 000 kPa above the boiler working pressure.

  • 3 The tests by hydraulic pressure on steam pipes shall be as follows:

    Test to be applied
    All steam pipes, new or old— Twice the working pressure
    • 4 (1) The test by hydraulic pressure on air receivers shall be as follows:

      Test to be applied
      • (a) New air receivers that are allowed a working pressure not over 690 kPa

      — Twice the working pressure
      • (b) New air receivers that are allowed a working pressure over 690 kPa

      — One and a half times the working pressure plus 345 kPa
      • (c) Air receivers that are not new, and that are being inspected for the first time

      — One and one-half times the working pressure
      • (d) Air receivers that have undergone important repairs

      — One and one-half times the working pressure
    • (2) The test applied at annual inspection, or at such other times as are considered necessary by the inspector, except as provided in subsection (1), shall not exceed one and one-half times the working pressure.
