Drawing Requirements

I want to know what's required to be on a ASME Code stamped pressure vessel weldment drawing. I've looked through Section VIII and could not find anything.


RE: Drawing Requirements

Position (butt welds) and dimensions (fillets and others) of all welds on pressure parts. Weld specifications (filler metal, procedure, NDT, etc.) are supplied in separate documents.

RE: Drawing Requirements

Most fabrication drawing for ASME show type of joints, weld size details and which item the details applies to; weld symbols are also employed.  The information may be on a fabrication drawing or refernced to a specific weld detail drawing.
