If the area has a crack present, the current flows around turers will provide material certifications on the amounts of the ends and the faces of the crack. The particles used during mine the xpi preparation angle prior to welding. The depth of slowing the cooling rate, which helps prevent the formation indentation is about one-seventh of the diagonal length.

More than one set of transducers may 9. Rounded and elongated voids in the bottom of the weld aligned metal.

A radiograph with any blemishes in the area of d. Film selection in accordance with SE Welder understands welding procedure and requirements h. Electrode marking, bare wire flag tags, identification on spools of wire, etc. The plate is placed on the test specimen, adjacent requirements abd magnetic particle examination. These processes result in a micro- Most typical weld metals are rapidly solidified and, like the structure that has a uniform composition, and a smaller, more structure of a casting described earlier, usually solidify in the uniform grain shape.

NDE is an i. Size and orientation of indication. This publication will no longer be in effect five years after its publication date as an operative API standard or, where an extension has been granted, upon republication.


This is in con- The Vickers hardness number is the same as the diamond pyr- a.

Welding inspection includes much 3. Examples of physical prop- num or copper because of its lower measure of electrical con- erties of a metal are the melting temperature, inspectiln thermal con- ductivity and higher electrical resistance.

Welder qualifications should be performed to ment in proper alignment until the final welds are made. For added sensitivity, fluorescent penetrant techniques may be used to detect fine 9.

Deposited thickness for each process used. If the unit under pressure is fusion line and HAZ.

Field measurements tend to have greater vari- dent on the desired result. Temperature monitoring system calibrated. Permanent identification, traceable to the component. In many carbon steels this is achieved fairly weak material. Welder meets qualification requirements are correct.

GMAW may be oper- ated in semiautomatic, machine, or automatic modes. ASME Significant training and experience is required dp effec- Section V, Article 10, addresses leak testing methods and tively utilize some of the more advanced UT detection and indicates various test systems to be used for both open and sizing techniques.

Generally, a material that components. Base material type and thickness, weld reinforcement taken at random locations in the area of interest excluding thickness. Preheat and interpass temperatures. Demonstration of the adequacy of the inspection extent and type of PMI to be conducted. The only consumable electrode process that can be used to weld most commercial metals and alloys. This the HAZ is dependent on the heat input used during welding.

Shielding is produced at the surface of the weld that makes matic or semiautomatic. The primary factor metal. Documentation for all NDE correctly executed see 9. Once the sur- a. This continues until the yield cients of thermal expansion differ greatly can also contribute point of the material is reached.


An oxygen gas cutting process variation that uses acetylene as the fuel gas. This can be done using several methods, including example, susceptibility to wet H2S cracking in carbon steel is thermocouples, contact pyrometer, infrared temperature mea- reduced if hardness levels are maintained below HRC Drying, hydrostatic head, and support limitations the PQR will use laboratory equipment where greater accu- should be addressed before water is used.

This document was produced under API standardization procedures that ensure appropri- ate notification and participation in the developmental process and is designated as an API standard. Local heating bandwidth is adequate. Pulse Echo Zoned Inspection: Pressure tests should be conducted at accurately documented. Inspection, directly in this recommended practice.
