Overview: Investigating the acceptance, rejection, and distortion after welding a set on nozzles used in the manufacture of pressure vessels.
The presentation shows the effect (distortion etc.) of different welding processes have on the same joint using the same material, thickness, and diameter. The seven representative nozzles were setup and tacked by the same person to ensure consistency. The parts were then welded using different processes and combinations of welding processes (TIG/MMA, TIG, etc). The parts were accurately measured (before and after) and were assessed for quality with NDT and DT (VT, RT, PT and microsection). The results were then assessed against different codes from EN 13445, RCC-M, ASME etc.
