DESCRIPTION

 

Welding defects are the result of poor control of the essential and non essential welding main variables described in the welding procedure specification. However, are all welding defects unacceptable by the chosen standards of construction? Yes, within certain limits.



OBJECTIVES


This course offers inspectors, welders, engineers, and professionals working in the welding field an explanation why some welding defects can be accepted and at the same time reduce the costs of nonquality weld seams. This course will focus on the differences between each of the different construction standard philosophies (time distributed equally among the standards is described below) and clarify why the same defect is at times accepted and/or rejected.

 

 

Upon completion of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • Identify causes of weld defects. 
  • Understand the welding defect tolerances of each standard.
  • Understand why tolerances vary for the same welding defect depending on the type of equipment, its position, orientation, etc.
