  • To ensure the satisfactory performance of a welded structure, the quality of the welds must be determined by adequate testing procedures. Therefore, they are proof tested under conditions that are the same or more severe than those encountered by the welded structures in the field. This page contains visual inspection tips. The following pages contain inspection methods for GMAW and physical weld

  • Q: We are expanding our job shop and adding the capability to work with much heavier structures, including considerably thicker materials. Some of these jobs specify high-strength materials and preheating. Some of our welders claim preheating is performed to remove water from the steel. Can you expand on this? A: This is an excellent topic for discussion! Preheating and postweld stress relief are

  • Why is preheat sometimes required before welding? Preheating the base material to be welded minimises the temperature difference between the material and the arc, slows the cooling rate in the weld area and reduces the risk of cracking. The need for preheat increases with steel thickness, weld restraint, the carbon/alloy content of the steel, and the diffusible hydrogen of the weld metal. Preheat

  • Radiographic Testing (RT)is anondestructive examination (NDE)technique that involves the use of either x-rays or gamma rays to view the internal structure of a component. In the petrochemical industry, RT is often used to inspect machinery, such aspressure vesselsand valves, to detect for flaws. RT is also used to inspect weld repairs. Compared to other NDE techniques,

  • In addition to producing high quality radiographs, theradiographer must also be skilled inradiographic interpretation .Interpretation of radiographs takes place in three basic steps: (1) detection, (2)interpretation , and (3)evaluation . All of these steps make use of the radiographer'svisual

  • APRIL 7, 2017Featured Stories Transmission pipeline welding often requires preheating of the weld zone to ensure that the joint achieves its required strength and hardness. Proper preheating also helps minimize the risk of delayed hydrogen-induced cracking, which is a significant concern that impacts weld quality and integrity in transmission pipelines. There are several heating methods

  • Weldingis an essential part of operating and maintaining assets in the petroleum (upstream, midstream, downstream) and chemical processing industries. While it has many useful applications, the welding process can inadvertently weaken equipment by imparting residual stresses into a material, leading to reduced material properties. In order to ensure the material strength of a part is retained

  • Hydrostatic test Ahydrostatic testis a way in whichpressure vesselssuch aspipelines,plumbing,gas cylinders,boilersand fuel tanks can be tested for strength and leaks. The test involves filling the vessel or pipe system with a liquid, usually water, which may be dyed to aid in visual leak detection, and pressurization of the vessel to the specified

The articles are about different inspection field categories such as shop inspection, site inspection, and in-service inspection requirements. The articles present you applicable codes and standards. There will also

  • One of the most common uses of nondestructive testing (NDT) is the examination of weld integrity. This is because welds are extraordinarily common in critical industrial applications across the world. The ability to inspect welds nondestructively is essential, as destroying one for testing necessitates replacing it with a new, untested weld. As such, there has been significant technological development
