This 1.5 factor is due to the pre-commissioning leak test pressure, which is generally done at 1.5 times the MOP.
It is also consistent with the proposed requirement in the AGA Plastic Materials Committee RCP White Paper (6), which requires that the RCP full-scale critical pressure be greater than the leak test pressure. The leak test pressure is 1.5 times the maximum operating pressure.
