NCS Fluid Handling Systems also take into account items such as;
Water analysis ensuring test water suitability and establishing baseline so when test water is returned it is cleaner than the original source analysis.
Temporary Diversion License (TDL) and water meters in place ensuring that the requested amount of water on the TDL is withdrawn and returned.
Crossing agreements in place ensuring all stakeholders have been consulted and have granted access for temporary test water supply lines to cross land and existing utilities.
Water Filtration plan and system in place in when all pipeline hydro-testing is completed ensuring test water is all returned to source cleaner than originally withdrawn. Interesting note is that if test water was heated to prevent freezing during testing the water is cooled to source water temperature as it is released, preventing temperature shock to aquatic life or plants.
Fish screens on suction inlets ensuring that no aquatic life is affected.
Erosion control for discharge lines, diffuser, silt bags supplied by NCS.
Field Level Hazard Assessment such as - Safe entry procedures are followed with life line, retractable lines and life jackets mandated.
In Canada, pipelines are mainly constructed of steel, although NCS Fluid Handling System has installed many HDPE lines with fusing machines and at times temporary aluminum lines are used in during bypass during the construction of piping networks. Steel pipelines are formed by welding sections of pipe together. After welding steel pipe joints together, the seams are X-rayed to detect any flaws in weldment, the pipe is the coated and / or wrapped with a protective coating and / or cement and then is buried.
All pipelines, regardless of type, are inspected. NCS Fluid Handling Systems supports the important Hydro-static pressure test. Hydro-static testing is the process where the pipeline is pressured to a test pressure greater than the operating pressure, this pressure test is mandated before any pipeline is put into service. The NCS Hydro-testing support service may include the test water transfer for the pressure test, water filtration, suction inlet fish screens or specialized industrial water heaters during cold weather testing.
