AWS D17.1 WELDER CERT. QUESTION

AWS D17.1 WELDER CERT. QUESTION

AWS D17.1 WELDER CERT. QUESTION

(OP)
Hello,

When looking at the tube to plate figure for welder certification, is it permissible to drill a hole into the center of the plate? We plan on using this hole to feed gas into the tube. There isn't anything in the spec that says we can't have a hole. Not to mention, once the test is cut up for evaluation, the hole won't matter I believe, as you're examining the weld.

If someone can provide some insight on this, that would be appreciated, thank you!

RE: AWS D17.1 WELDER CERT. QUESTION

If the code doesn't say you can't, you can.

Best regards - Al

RE: AWS D17.1 WELDER CERT. QUESTION

I have seen this done to feed gas for a test. There were no issues raised. I almost said it goes without saying but I am going to say it anyways. Holes are ok for the test but do not cut holes during the project without the engineers/designers permission.
