Klosterman — Iowa M. Inquiries from Code users shall be in English and preferably be submitted in typewritten form; however, legible handwritten inquiries will also be consid- ered. The Procedure Qualification Record PQR documents what occurred during welding the test coupon and the aasme of testing of the coupon. Charpy V-notch impact tests shall be made when required by other Sections.

LaRochelle, Vice Chair P. More than one procedure qualification may be required to qualify for some dissimilar thickness combinations.

Tests as described in QW and QW are used to determine the notch toughness of the weldment. Davenport — Pennsylvania S. The procedure shall be qualified by buttering the test coupon including heat treat- ing of the buttered member when this will be done in production welding and then making the same weld joining the members.

asme IX bpvc.ix.2010

For tubes of specified diameter greater than 2 in. QW Visual Examination — Performance Performance test coupons shall show complete joint pen- etration with complete fusion of weld metal and base metal. Seam welding machine qualification testing shall be the same as procedure qualification testing required per QW It is permissible, however, to subcontract any or all of the work of preparation of test metal for welding and subse- quent work on preparation of test specimens from the com- pleted weldment, performance of nondestructive examination, and mechanical tests, provided the manufac- turer or contractor accepts the xsme for any such work.


When optional supplemental designators, such as those which indicate moisture resistance i. The examination technique and acceptance criteria qsme be in accordance with QW Chockie, Honorary Member C.

The examination technique and acceptance criteria shall be in accordance with QW Open discontinuities occurring on the corners of the specimen during testing shall not be considered unless there is definite evidence that aame result from lack of fusion, slag inclusions, or other internal discontinuities.

Conley, Contributing Member T. When an immediate retest is made, the welder or welding operator shall make two consecutive test coupons for each position which he has failed, all of which shall pass the test requirements. Park, Vice Chair R. Examination, testing, and acceptance criteria shall be in accordance with QW The Procedure Qualification Record PQR documents what occurred during welding the test coupon and the results of testing of the coupon.

Section IX does not contain rules to cover all welding and brazing factors affecting production weld or braze properties under all circumstances. The Committee recognizes that tools and techniques used for design and analysis change as technology prog- resses and expects engineers to use good judgment in the application of these tools.

Graham — Oregon R. The Code Committee does not rule on whether a compo- nent shall or shall not be constructed to the provisions of the Code. The tension test results shall comply with QW The welders or welding is ators used to produce weldments to be tested for qualifica- tion of procedures shall be under the full supervision and control of the manufacturer or contractor during the produc- tion of these test weldments. Proposed revi- sions to the Code resulting from inquiries will be presented to the Main Committee for appropriate action.


For pipe-to-shape mockups, the mockup shall qsme cut trans- versely to provide four approximately equal test specimens.

One test bpv shall be welded, cut into strips, visually examined, and bend tested in accordance with QW Monroe — Oklahoma S. Ten mockup welds are required to qualify each procedure. Based on these objectives, the following policy has been established on the usage in advertising of facsimiles of the symbols, Certificates of Authorization, and reference to Code construction.

Gregor, Vice Chair T. If specific qualification test requirements are not specified by the applicable Code Section, welders and welding operators shall be qualified with one of the follow- ing methods: Each part is then divided into articles.

For nontubular cross sections, four side-bend specimens shall be prepared from the two remaining coupons as ssme in figure QW The footnotes in this document are part of this American National Standard. When it is determined that the test failure was caused by one or more welding related factors other than essential or supplementary essential variables, a new test coupon may be welded with the appropriate changes to the welding related factors that were determined to cause the test failure.

Birdsall, Contributing Member M. A-Numbers may be deter- mined in accordance with QW The assignments do not imply that base metals may be indiscriminately substituted for a base metal which was used in the qualification test without consideration of the id from the standpoint of metallurgical proper- ties, postweld heat treatment, design, mechanical proper- ties, and service requirements.

Jacobs, Corresponding Member E. These conditions include the base metals that are permitted, the filler metals that must be used if anypreheat and postweld heat treatment requirements, etc.
