PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

(OP)
Anyone can tell me what is the PWHT requirement for fillet weld.

I have to Fillet weld a plug with Leg size of 12 mmm.

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

There is no 'requirement'.
There are various codes, roughly divided into structural and pressure equipment. Each has its own rules, based on material, dimensions, ultimate application of the equipment, and other inputs.
We will need much more information to begin to answer this.

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

(OP)
i just saw on ASME Sec VIII Div . 1. If fillet is less than 13 mm, PWHT is not required. See table UCS-56-1 FOR P.No.1.

What I am not sure it is than mandatory if fillet is greater than 13 mm throat.

What information u need more to begin?

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

I need complete words from you actually, this is not social media.

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

Depends of limits in table UCS-56-1 note (b)(3)

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

If you thickness of vessel and nozzle reinforcing pad is 20 mm each, you would need a fillet weld of 20 x 0.7 = 14 mm
What should you write on your data sheet??
For shell, there is no PWHT requirement (thickness less than 32 mm) and assuming no hydrogen and lethal service. But the fillet weld size falls in the category of pwht now
What to communicate to your vendor in this case??

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

please be noted that note (b)(3) of table ucs 56 for P No.1 is related to lethal service.

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

in fact for some welds in lethal service pwht is not mandatory with limitation described in note (b) (3) of table ucs-56 for P No.1.

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

kiad, you are wrong. See UW-2 (a) Lethal service
......When fabricated of carbon or low alloy steel, such vessels shall be postweld heat treated.....

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

KIAD is correct. Note (b)(3) are exemptions to PWHT for lethal service.

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

If PWHT is mandatory for welded joint of all thicknesses for lethal service (UW-2), how can you avoid fillet welds during PWHT? (Note (b)(3)in Table UCS-56-1)

RE: PWHT Requirement for Fillet weld

I could have explained a littel better...PWHT is mandatory for vessel and most exemptions will refer to other parts of UW-2, but some things may not be done prior to PWHT.

Standard Designation: BPV Section VIII Div 1
Edition/Addenda:
Para./Fig./Table No:
Subject Description: Section VIII, Division 1 (1998 Edition, 1999 Addenda); UCL-51 and Table UCS-56
Date Issued: 03/22/2000
Record Number: BC00-080
Interpretation Number : VIII-1-98-108
Question(s) and Reply(ies):

Question (1): A pressure vessel is constructed of P-No. 1 and P-No. 8 materials, and is intended for lethal service. The vessel is PWHT. After PWHT, but before performing the hydrotest, the interior of the vessel has a stainless steel lining applied using plug welds. Does Note (2)(c)(5) of Table UCS-56 in Section VIII, Division 1 permit the liner to be applied after the vessel has been PWHT without the need to perform any additional heat treatment?

Reply (1): Yes, provided that the preheat requirements are met.

Question (2): Does UCL-51 permit the liner to be repaired by welding to the P-No. 1 base material after the vessel has been PWHT without the need to perform any additional heat treatment?

Reply (2): Yes, with the acceptance of the Authorized Inspector.

White Paper – Your Construction ERP RFP Checklist
Selecting business software for a medium to enterprise-sized construction concern is extremely challenging in large part because most enterprise resource planning (ERP) suites originated in the world of repetitive manufacturing and are therefore a poor fit for a project and asset-centric business. However, midsize to large contractors need the predictable, auditable processes that ERP delivers. Download Now
