CSWIP 3.0 Visual Welding Inspector exam and training

CSWIP 3.0 TWI Visual Welding Inspectors Course and exam guideline

Certification for welding inspector course 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[…]

ultrasonic pipeline inspection by pigging

pig cleaning system

what is pig cleaning system? each oil and gas company is required to carry out pipeline inspection activities. Inspection methods that are often used vary according to company requirements. starting from UT conventional, LRUT, MTM, visual inspection to the most sophisticated method, namely ILI or often called pigging. based on my 15 years of experience in the inspection field, this pigging method is the most perfect inspection method with a relatively cheap price compared to the LRUT method. This pigging inspection process is carried out by inserting pig in the pipe without interrupting the pipe operation or stopping the flow[…]

arc welding basics

understanding arc welding basics and type of arc welding

Arc Welding Welding can be defined as “the operation that produces coalescence of two or more members by applying heats or pressure or both, with or without the use of filler metal” . Welding (Metallurgical joining) can further be classified by the joining mechanism into 4 groups : Fusion welding ( can be referred to as welding in the narrow sense), solid phase joining (pressure welding), diffusion welding and joining by liquid-solid phase reaction (Brazing & soldering). Fusion welding consist of 5 categories : gas welding, arc welding, electroslag welding , thermite welding and high energy beam welding (electron beam[…]

welding procedure specification pdf

(pdf) what is Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) definition ?

Welding procedure specification (WPS) Welding Procedure Specification is a document containing the variables of the welding parameter created for the purpose of being used as a welder or welding operator to perform welding work (welding connections) in accordance with the provisions of the code (ASME, API and AWS). 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, i.e construction, for example when manufacturing pressure vessels, storage tanks, process piping, and pipelines. Welding is also often done at the time after the EPC[…]
