Test Standpipes (Cowhorns)

Mains test Cowhorns for pressure testing Gas pipelines in accordance with NGT GIS specification GIS/TE/P6.3:2007.

The 2 part manifold comprises a cowhorn standpipe (supplied in 3 different pressure ratings, colour coded for ease of identification), and a common base (common to all 3 types).

The cowhorn facilitates quick and safely controlled pressurising via a ludecke type coupler and diaphragm valve and is also fitted with a pressure gauge and safety pressure relief valve.

On completion of pressurising, the cowhorn can be removed to allow connection of a pressure gauge for longer duration testing, fitted via a pushfit quick release coupling.
