Two PQRs for one WPS to qualify position on different base materials

Two PQRs for one WPS to qualify position on different base materials

(OP)
Hello,

I would to try and combine two PQRs into a WPS.

PQR 1 is 3G with CVNs, materials welded API 5L X65 - API 2H Gr 50.
PQR 2 is a 6GR without CVNs, same filler metal as above only changing the materials (API 5L X65 - API 5L X52).

Intention is to have PQR 1 qualified for ALL positions. PQR 1 would have all the testing done (tensile, bends, CVNs, etc.) and PQR 2 would supplement this PQR with the positions. PQR 2 has the same filler metal, similar/same process parameters, etc. except for the base materials. Therefore PQR 2 would "demostrate" the weldability/penetration of the filler metal with the other variables.


Is this possible/feasible? Thank you.

Not per ASME IX.

RE: Two PQRs for one WPS to qualify position on different base materials

What construction/qualification code is being used? Your original PQR qualifies all position for ASME IX, but not all codes. But if it is ASME IX, it only qualifies P1 Group 2 welded to API 2H Gr. 50 (unclassified material, as I did not see it was assigned a P number). Your 2nd PQR does not qualify anything other than give you peace of mind that it works, since no testing seems to have been done.

Sorry to mention, it would be AWS D1.1
