This also improves the purging operation because there is less gas leakage when the root opening is 0 inches. You may also check our other blog posts here. A Welding Procedure Specification WPS is a formal written document describing welding procedures, which provides direction to the welder or welding operators for making sound and quality production welds as per the applicable code requirements. You can normally bet on the finished product shrinking at least half of the root gap dimension, after the pipe completely cools. To an mechanical engineer or designer it seems logical that a good tight, precise fit up would be desireable but that is not really the case when a weld needs to fully pentrate the joint. By Stallsmith Date I agree.
The amount of detail and level of controls specified on a WPS is dependant on the application and criticality of the joint to be welded. In the oil and gas pipeline sector, the American Petroleum Institute API standard is used almost exclusively worldwide. Preparation methods do not need a lot of details, you should just specify if this welded joint is going to be grinded, machined, etc. In my own opinion, these are simply fancy rule of thumb calculations.
And I would rather have a joint with too little gap than too big of a gap because I can increase a gap easier that shrinking it. For some applications it may be necessary to supplement or reduce the list. The purpose of the wps document is to guide welders to perform their work in accordance with the accepted procedures so that repeatable and trusted welding techniques are used. Acetylene manifold systems for welding, cutting and allied processes. The same goes for the weld type, in which some standards will approve welding fillet welds by performing a butt weld test.

As such you could opt to go with the minimum value or if you find there is an extra need for preheating, you may do so e. In some cases, the test coupons may be radiographed in lieu of destructive testing. In this case you just have to associate it to the corresponding welding process and pass.
Comply with applicable codes and standards. Obviously I'm not a welder, but I am a designer and I need to understand the basics of welding, as it pertains to pipe fittings.
Again there are no hard and fast rules but I do feel knowledge of welding processes and desired weld results would help a designer or engineer when drawing these fittings and projects up.
You may mention the fact that it could be a single or multi layer weld, but that is not so important, as that information will already be available on the welding passes themselves. Heat Input is a critical value that has to be calculated.
Post weld heat treatment is perhaps one of the most important aspects of your welding, if it is verified to be necessary. They are not provided by the ASME codes. Requirements for the application of SWPSs — this section basically says that you are responsible for the proper use of the procedure.
If you are not so lucky as to have one available, then yes, the design department needs to work very closely with fabrication supervision in order to assure that all of the necessary allowances have been accounted for. Amperage has a direct influence on the heat input and also defines how a welder will control his puddle.
Flow rates are important, they make the difference between a welder being able to control the torch easily and assuring a sound weld, with no oxidation either on the root or the top side, which means this value should be thought out and based upon previous experience, for both the shielding and backing gases.
This code, generally used for buildings and support structures, is useful for fabricating and erecting any welded structure. Basic welded joint details in steel. All you need to do is reference the PQR number which will allow any reader of your WPS to trace back to the original qualifying document.
Although less important, they should be mentioned. The oscillation is mostly used for machine welding, but you can define the limits of the weaving that a welder should restrict himself to. You may put a range of layers e. Be confident that your welding procedure specification will produce a welded component with properties that satisfy the design requirements.
It describes the welding process or processes used, the base materials used, the joint design and geometry, gases and flow rates, welding position and includes all of the process conditions and variables. Acetylene manifold systems for welding, cutting and allied processes.

In short the WPS is the recipe for your welding operation.Aug 26, · Welding codes are designed to improve the quality and efficiency of welding and are used to qualify welders.
Predominate among welding codes in the U.S. are those authored by ASME and AWS. This article provides a brief overview of the similarities and differences in these codes. Specification for qualification of welding procedures and welders for pipe and tubing, AWS standard B on hildebrandsguld.com *FREE* shipping on qualifying hildebrandsguld.com: Unknown Binding, By referencing this specification and specifying the desired level of Acceptance Requirements, any organization may make it the governing document for qualifying welding procedures and welders for the welding of piping and tubing.
Provision is made in this specification for qualifying welding procedures and welders for both groove and fillet welds. Basis for Establishing a Standard Welding Procedure Specification (SWPSs) (Excerpt from AWS B/BM, Annex E) The American Welding Society, acting under ANSI rules for consensus standards, publishes AWS Standard Welding Procedure Specifications (SWPSs) which are initiated by the Welding Procedures Committee of the Welding Research.
Welding Procedure Specification Example A WPS is a document that describes how welding is to be carried out in production.
They are recommended for all welding operations and many application codes and standards make them mandatory. Certify or maintain your company certification with the AWS, ASME, AISC, ISO, IBC, API, etc., b y having properly written welding procedures & welding documentation. NEW!
