methods specified in the Article 5.6 shall not be less than the calibration value
of the manufacturer.
4.2.5 Durability
After being conducted with the durability test according to the provisions
specified in the Article 5.7, the pressure regulators shall meet the requirements
specified in the Articles 4.2.3 and 4.2.4.
4.2.6 Corrosion resistance
After being conducted with the salt spray test according to the test methods
specified in the Article 5.8.1, the pressure regulators shall meet the
requirements specified in the Article 4.2.3.1.
USE a 25× magnifier to check the brass pressure-bearing components whose
zinc content is greater than 15% after conducting the test according to the test
methods specified in the Article 5.8.2. There shall be no cracks on the
components.
4.2.7 Ozone resistance
After being conducted with the ozone resistance test according to the test
methods specified in the Article 5.9, the non-metallic parts and components of
pressure regulators in contact with the natural gas shall have no cracks.
4.2.8 Compatibility
After the non-metallic parts and components of pressure regulators are
conducted with the compatibility test according to the test methods specified in
the Article 5.10, the volumetric change rate shall not be greater than 20%, and
the mass decrease rate shall not be greater than 5%.
4.2.9 Vibration resistance
After being conducted with 6-hour vibration test according to the test methods
specified in the Article 5.11, the pressure regulators shall meet the requirements
specified in the Article 4.2.3.1.
4.2.10 Dry heat resistance
5.3 Hydrostatic strength test
REMOVE the pressure relief valve first. SEAL this location afterwards. BLOCK
the outlet of the pressure regulator. APPLY 40MPa pressure at the inlet. KEEP
this pressure for no less than 1min. CHECK the pressure regulator afterwards.
The components conducted with this test shall not be used any longer.
5.4 Performance test for the pressure relief valve
The test for the pressure relief valve of the pressure regulator can be conducted
