buckles. The engagement length of the threads between the bolts of embedded valve bodies and the valve bodies shall not be less than 1.5 times of the bolt diameter. The bolts and nuts shall have ??2mm lead sealing holes.
3.2.9 The tin-plated valves shall be screwed in for 7-12 buckles, while the container plugs shall be screwed in for 5-8 buckles. The screwing torque shall be within the range of 280-560N?€?m. The valves and plugs shall have ??2mm lead sealing holes.
4 Tests conducted to new containers
4.1 Cold-hot test
4.1.1 The stainless steel containers need to be conducted with cold-hot test when operating at -196??C. When each batch of containers includes more than 10pcs, SAMPLE the containers accounting for 10% to 20% of the batch quantity for cold-hot test. If one of the containers is unqualified, INCREASE the sampling quantity to 40% of the batch quantity. If the non-conformance products still exist, CONDUCT the cold-hot test to the entire batch of containers. When the batch quantity is equal to or less than 10pcs, CONDUCT the cold-hot test to each container.
4.1.2 The method of conducting the cold-hot test to the containers is as follows. a) During the test, EVACUATE the container until the pressure is lower than 133Pa. After 30min, CHECK whether the pressure meets the
requirements of the vacuum test.
b) PUT the container in the dedicated Dewar bottle. POUR in liquid nitrogen, so as to cool down the container. The liquid level of liquid nitrogen shall always submerge the welds of container neck. FREEZE the container for
1h. Naturally THAW to room temperature. HEAT the container to the
maximum allowable temperature according to the provisions of design
drawings. MAINTAIN heating for 1h. Naturally COOL down to room
c) The vacuum test for containers shall meet the requirements of Article 4.4.1.
4.2 Pressure (hydraulic/air pressure) test
4.2.1 The requirements for pressure gages and the safety precautions of the pressure test are as follows.
a) USE two pressure gages that are proven to be qualified along with the same measuring range for conducting the pressure test;
b) The precision of pressure gages shall not be lower than Level 1.5.
CONDUCT verification within half a year. The appropriate measuring
range shall be 1.5 to 3 times of the test pressure. The dial diameter shall be greater than 100mm;
c) The safety precautions of the pressure test shall be implemented
according to TSG R0004-2009.
4.2.2 CONDUCT hydrostatic test or air pressure test according to the
requirements of design drawings.
184.108.40.206 The method of hydrostatic test is as follows.
a) The hydrostatic test of containers shall be conducted according to the Article 8.5.2 of EJ/T 190-1994.
b) After the hydrostatic test, DRAIN the water in the container. USE dried and degreased compressed air for drying. DRY the container in the
drying oven where the temperature is controlled at 100??C ?? 5??C for 24h. 220.127.116.11 The air pressure test of containers shall be conducted according to the Article 8.5.3 of EJ/T 190-1994. If using nitrogen, the nitrogen shall meet the requirements of GB/T 3864-1996.
4.3 Gas leakage test
4.3.1 For 740L and 3m3 containers, after the assembly is qualified, CONDUCT gas leakage test according to the requirements of drawings.
4.3.2 The requirements and methods of the gas leakage test of containers shall be implemented according to the Article 8.5.4 of EJ/T 190-1994.
4.4 Vacuum test
4.4.1 CONDUCT vacuum test to the containers after the assembly. After the container assembly is qualified, EVACUATE the containers in time. The leakage rate shall meet the requirements of drawings or the provisions in Table 5 of EJ/T 190-1994. The time for the inner surfaces of containers to contact with the atmosphere shall not be longer than 24h.
4.4.2 After the vacuum containers are qualified, USE dry nitrogen to seal up the containers whose shelf life is more than 6 months for safekeeping. The sealing pressure shall be within the range of 0.05MPa to 0.1MPa (gage pressure). The quality of nitrogen shall conform to the indicators of first-grade products 6.3.3 For 740L and 3m3 containers, PUNCH lead sealing holes on the square valve rods and the valve covers of the JF 22 valves. CONDUCT lead sealing to the above valves. CONDUCT lead sealing when the valves with protective
covers leave the factory.
6.3.4 CONDUCT lead sealing to the container plugs.
6.3.5 Specially ASSIGN someone to manage the lead sealing pliers. The labels of lead sealing heads shall be traceable.
6.4 Container filing
6.4.1 The container property organizations shall establish the container ledger, and shall place the manufacturing documents and materials on file.
6.4.2 The container property organizations shall keep the ?€?container turnover records?€?, so as to circulate together with the containers.
6.4.3 In the process of container turnover, NOTE down the acceptance,
pressure test, cleaning, assembly, passivation, loading abundance, weighing, and other conditions of the containers i...
