The end of each strip of the macro coupon shall be polished and etched to clearly reveal the weld metal. Bpvvc addition, welders and welding operators who pass the required tests for groove welds shall also be qualified to make fillet welds in all thicknesses and pipe diameters of any size within the limits of the welding variables of QW or QW, as applicable.

Alternatively, a minimum 3 ft 1 m length of the first production weld s made entirely by the welding operator in 0210 with a qualified WPS may be exam- ined by volumetric NDE. Camurati, Staff Secretary M. Welders and welding operators who pass the required tests for fillet welds in the test positions of table QW Tension tests as described in QW are used to determine the ultimate strength of groove- weld joints.

The “Brief of Variables” listed in the tables are for reference only. The weld metal and heat affected zone shall exhibit complete fusion and freedom from cracks. For pipe-to-plate or pipe-to-pipe, the test coupon shall be cut transversely to provide four approxi- mately equal test specimen sections.

If this length of weld passes the test, the welder is qualified and the area of weld on which he had previously failed the test shall be repaired by him or another 200 welder. If the welder or welding operator has had his qualification with- drawn for specific reasons, the employing organization shall notify all other participating organizations that the welder’s or welding operator’s qualification s has been revoked in accordance with QW This variable does not apply when impact testing of the heat- affected zone is not required by other Sections.

Additional information can be incorporated into a PQR at a later date provided the information is substantiated as having been part of the original qualification condition by lab record or similar data. In the case of a test coupon containing more than two members, a hole shall be drilled in each member except for one of the outer members. I us, Delegate C.

The coupon shall be mechanically tested in accordance with QW Once these requirements and any additional qualification requirements of the appli- cable construction code have been satisfied, then it is neces- sary only to prepare an additional test coupon using the same procedure with the same essential and, if applicable, the supplementary gpvc variables with the coupon long enough to obtain the required temper bead test specimens. Production weld sampling tests required by other Sections may be used to qualify welding operators.

Dodge — Nova Scotia, Canada S. Edwards, Vice Chair K. Test procedures and apparatus shall conform to the requirements of SA Kraft — Maryland B. Gregor, Vice Chair T.

For studs welded to other than P-No. When qualifying pipe in the 5G or 6G position, the notch-toughness specimens shall be removed from the shaded portion of figure QW Sullivan, Contributing Member China Internationa! Welders and welding operators who pass the required tests for groove welds in the test positions of table QW Metals were listed in numerical order by material specification number to aid users in locating the appropriate grouping number.

A WPS is a written qualified welding procedure prepared to provide direction bpvx making production welds to Code require- ments.


Each manufacturer or contractor shall qualify id welder or welding operator for each welding process to be used in production welding. In this case requali- fication of welders and welding operators within the com- panies of such an organization will not be required, provided all other requirements of Section IX are met. Rodriguez C Romero J.

Welding procedure qualification establishes the prop- erties of the weldment, not the skill of the welder or welding operator.

Mac Kay, Honorary Member T. A welder or welding operator who has qualified on composite welds in clad or lined material, as provided in QW Demonstration of density and image quality jx on production or technique radiographs shall be considered satisfactory evidence of compliance with Article 2 of Section V b final acceptance of radiographs shall be based on the ability to see the prescribed image and the specified hole of a hole-type image quality indicator IQI or the designated wire 200 a wire-type IQI.

A margin note, aplaced next to the heading indicates Location.

Bell — Michigan W. This responsibility cannot be delegated to another organization. In this case requali- fication of welders and welding operators within the com- panies of such an organization will not be required, provided all other requirements of Section IX are met.

Doty, Honorary Member D. Where a combination of welding processes is required to make a weldment, each welder shall be qualified for the particular welding process or processes he will be required to use in production welding.

The weld is paral- lel to the longitudinal axis of the specimen, which is bent so that the face surface becomes the convex surface of the bent specimen.
