QW has always been broader; it requires one to considered individually each welder or welding operator, each welding process and whenever there is a change in an essential variable. This demonstrates that an accredited fabricator has some degree of competence permitting them to perform a large amount of their own inspection without the involvement of an Independent Inspection Body, which would be required by other standards for similar inspections. He can be reached at and by e-mail at: The following article by Walter J. Each material list shows matching electrode, and filler metal, to be used to establish prequalified procedures.

Hi Not all welders are capable of welding a full penetration weld from one side only.
Section IX of the ASME BPVC
There is setion movement afoot to add more detailed visual examination requirements for welder test coupons. To make it clear that QW Colorado - Section The last two paragraphs of QG were deleted since they had this backwards. Their are certain exceptions in the code that are not covered in these articles, therefore you are urged to study the code carefully before using its rules to carry out any welding qualifications.
Choosing a specific code when one is not specified in the contract often involves a fine line.
This can be achieved by welding from one side only, but then the root needs to penetrate and fuse all the way along the weld seam. Those who weld repair castings and those who weld on other thick components will rejoice that var- iable QW Further, a note was added to QW That table and table QW was deleted in and replaced by generic rules in QW that apply when using more than one welding process in the same weld pool.
The WPS is qualified by welding procedure qualification test coupons. The rules require that a WPS be prepared, but qualification of the WPS is not required, nor will operators have to be qualified.

Predominate among welding codes in the U. Contact Us sales novarctech. This variable limited the base metal thickness qualified to 1.
See the table I attached above. Rochester - Section By rshanks Date I knew for back weld it, but still not clear why you need to do it, you can weld the root pass and leave it as it.

QW on continuity of qualification i. Click here to visit the original post. When radiographing a weld, QW said that demonstration of acceptable density and image quality on production or technique radiographs shall be considered satisfactory evidence of compliance with Section V, Article 2.
This standard will be replacing SFA 5. Sectuon advantage of ASME 9 is that its very workable and very comprehensive, if you have a question you will almost certainly find an answer somewhere in the code, which is more than can be said for its European equivalent EN ISO formerly EN By vdao Date In some cases, the test coupons may be radiographed in lieu of destructive testing.

A definition for trailing gas was added to QG Section IX does not have additional requirements because organizations work to different construction Codes, and the visual acceptance criteria vary significantly between codes; this leaves the door open for organizations to impose acceptance criteria on their welders that are consistent with what the welders will have to achieve when working to those other codes.
Welders and Welding Operators may be qualified by visual and mechanical tests, or by radiography of a test coupon, or by radiography of the initial production weld. They are a collection of my own personal notes which were written to aid my understanding of the code.
May get LOP defects, or over pennetration defects etc.
The WPS shall specify a value or range for each essential, nonessential and, when necessary, each supplementary essential variable listed for each welding process. This is why welding qualifications carried out under the ASME same do not require Independent Inspection, a fabricator can qualify his own procedures and welders using the ASME code rules.
