... by subjecting them to a hydrostatic pressure test of 1.3 times the maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) corrected for the difference between allowable stresses at the test temperature and the design temperature. It provides for testing at hydrostatic test pressures higher than 1.3 times the MAWP, but most...
