The effect of welding flame heating on the weld structure and the weld heat affected zone

weld heat affected Zone The welded joint can be divided into three main zones having different micro structures: base metal zone; heat affected zone; and a weld seam weld zone. In gas welding, due to slow heating , the heat affected zone (near- heat zone) is larger than in the case of arc welding . The thermal influence zone has several structural sections caused by the heating temperature in the range of 450-1500 ° C and differing in the shape and structure of the grain. The thermal influence zone consists of the following sections: incomplete fusion overheating normalization incomplete re-crystallization[…]

CSWIP 3.0 TWI Visual Welding Inspector for plate

Certification for welding inspector During the fabrication process of equipment, we often encounter the welding process. Welding inspector officers have the duty to maintain welding quality. This QA / QC process starts from weld preparation, weld process and after welding. The welding inspector has several kinds of certifications. For Europe, we are familiar with welding inspectors CSWIP 3.0 and CSWIP 3.1. In November 2019, I took part in the training and examination of the CSWIP 3.0 Welding Inspector certification in addition to my previous competence, which was a certified welding engineer. The CSWIP 3.0 Visual Welding Inspector course is designed[…]

what is Welding Procedure Specification (WPS)?

Welding procedure specification (WPS) Some of the EPC activities that are critical in the oil and gas industry are welding. Welding is carried out when the EPC enters the third phase, ie Construction, for example when manufacturing pressure vessels, storage tanks, process piping, and pipelines. Welding is also often done at the time after the EPC project is finished or Plant has started up, for example when there is an improvement or when Turn around. Welding that is done when the plant is operational has a much greater hazard than when the EPC project. When the plant is operational, there[…]

what are the advantages and disadvantages of gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW)

gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) GTAW or gas tungsten arc welding process is a manual welding process that can only be done by an experienced welder. GTAW produces excellent quality and excellent welding quality. This process is often used for pipe welding or pressure vessels with special materials such as high-temperature steel, stainless steel or high strength steel. This GTAW welding process is also often used with the SMAW process, which is in the root (which requires good and clean quality) using the GTAW process and is followed by a faster SMAW process. GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) is an[…]
