When performing weave technique on pipe weld per the WPS is there a code specific on max of how wide the weave can be in a single pass using GTAW process? I can not find in any ASME or API code. I would think that as long as you keep your machine settings in the parameters of the WPS, it wouldn't matter how wide the weave is providing complete fusion is being achieved. I keep hearing the 3x diameter of the wire being used. That would seem like it would apply to stringer beads rather than the weave. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Limits placed on how many workers can gather at a job site vary, but these physical distancing directives can be overcome with augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) technology. AR and VR can transport key people to any job site, opening up the site and allowing more people to be on-site virtually, without requiring travel or risky physical interaction. Download Now
