ISO 15614 - does pipe butt weld qualify plate weld

ISO 15614 - does pipe butt weld qualify plate weld

ISO 15614 - does pipe butt weld qualify plate weld

(OP)
Hi,
I'm writing my first PQR/WPS and have a question regarding the interpretation of ISO 15614.
The standard states that butt weld on pipe with OD>25 covers all diameters > 0.5D.
Does this mean that it covers butt weld on plate with implied diameter of infinity?
Thanks

RE: ISO 15614 - does pipe butt weld qualify plate weld

Yes.

It literally says so under ยง 8.3.3
"A butt weld qualification for pipes covers butt welds in plates."

Thanks,
I guess our version of the standard is quite old and that was added recently

RE: ISO 15614 - does pipe butt weld qualify plate weld

It was added in the 2017 version.
The 2004 version did cover plates when testing on pipes, as you correctly stated a plate is a tube with diameter = infinity.

Obviously I would suggest using the latest version, however be careful with the 2004 version as there have been several amendments, some of them with quite important modifications to the original standard.
