Summary of changes to ASME Section IX 2021 - by WJ Sperko

Summary of changes to ASME Section IX 2021 - by WJ Sperko

Just like last year, and every B&PV Code edition, here's a link to the latest issue of WJ Sperko's ASME Section IX article, which contains a summary of changes of the ASME section IX 2021 edt.
WJ Sperko is a member of one of the sec IX committees and bi-annually posts this very useful article for those involved in welding, welding inspection, etc. to review all the changes to the new Sec IX issue, in a very well documented and easy to read way. Also visit his website for more interesting article and information on welding and ASME sec IX

- You never get what you expect, you only get what you inspect.

Thank you thank you thank you Walter for removing this Frankenstein specification:

"If you don't have time to do the job right the first time, when are you going to find time to repair it?"

RE: Summary of changes to ASME Section IX 2021 - by WJ Sperko

The blow back on A5.36 was huge. AWS cancelled it in January of this year.

While it served a purpose for a welding engineer, the classification system was so complex, few people would ever remember what all the letters and digits represented.

RIP A5.36

Best regards - Al
