Determining the Welding Profile specified on WPS for Pipeline

Determining the Welding Profile specified on WPS for Pipeline

(OP)
Dear Welding and piping expert.

it is whom responsibility to determine the type of pipe/piping welding profile " Root depth, Spacing , Bevel angle and shape Single or double grooving , V or J type ?

On what basis these parameters " Type of profile , dimensions along with Welding electrode type [ root , hot , filling and cap ] " are selected ?

is there any engineering software to select or design the welding joint for pipe/piping ?

Regards,

Tarek

RE: Determining the Welding Profile specified on WPS for Pipeline

What code are you building to?

usually the engineer designing it.

parameters, voltage/amperage/dimensions/root depth, fill and cap can be taken from ASME IX 2013.

do you already have supporting PQR's or what stage are you at with that?

RE: Determining the Welding Profile specified on WPS for Pipeline

nm, AWS forum. - disregard my suggestion of use for ASME IX.

RE: Determining the Welding Profile specified on WPS for Pipeline

I suggest referring to AWS D10 standards. AWS D10.X standards, there are several recommended practices that recommend the parameters based on base metal and welding process. Go to www.aws.org and do a search for D10. You should get several hits with a synopsis of what each RP addresses, i.e., aluminum pipe, carbon steel pipe, austenitic stainless steel pipe, etc.

Best regards - Al
