Allowable Leakage in Pipes



Allowable leakage during the maintenance stage of pipe carefully laid and well tested during construction is given by:

qL=N*D*sqrt p/115


qL = Allowable Leakage in per hour,

N = Number of Joints in length

D = Diameter of pipe in mm,

P = Average Test Pressure during leakage Test in Kg/
