identified and marked on the spools with the welder identification for
each joint.

7.3 Fit Up and Tack Welding

1) Fit-up assembly shall be carried out by using locally prepared couplers.


All the required pipe holding work benches, assembling brackets, U
bolts etc. would be made in house to suit the pipe sizes.
2) For butt welds a uniform root opening as specified below shall be
maintained.
1.5 mm for pipe diameters < 50 mm
1.5 / 2.5 mm for pipe diameters 50 mm to 250 mm.
2.5 / 3.5 mm for pipe diameters > 250 mm
3) For all socket weld joints the pipe end shall be free from cutting burrs. A
clearance of 1.6 mm shall be provided between the end of pipe and
bottom of socket.
4) Internal misalignment shall be limited to
1.6 mm for pipe diameter 24 and below.
3.2 mm for pipe diameter 26 and above.
5) The pipes shall be tack welded in three equidistant positions. Tack Weld
shall be done as per approved WPS by a qualified welder.

7.4 Welding

1) Welding procedures and welders shall be qualified as per Project


Specifications and relevant codes, prior to start of the welding.
2) Ensure that the edges are free from dirt, rust, oil, grease, paint etc.

3) Welding shall be done as per approved WPS for the particular piping. Pre
heating and welding consumable shall be checked before starting of
welding.
4) Each weld layer shall be cleaned before starting to weld next layer. The
cleaned area shall be free from slags. Any visual defects like cracks,
pores, spatters weld shall be removed by grinding before the next layer is
applied. The ends of weld layer shall be removed by grinding at tack
points of each weld. Any possible weld excess layer will be removed by
grinding.
5) For the fabrication & welding of Stainless Steel pipes, only Stainless Steel
tools & consumables (Wire Brush Chipping, Hammer, and Abrasive disc)
shall be used.
6) Appearance of finished weld shall be as even as possible and free from
spatter, under cutting, cracks, excess reinforcement etc.

7.5 Non Destructive Examination

1) The extent of NDT will be in accordance with Project General Specification


for different piping systems. The acceptance criteria shall be in accordance
with ASME B 31.3.
2) If PWHT is applicable for any piping system, NDT shall be carried out after
completion of PWHT.
3) Welding record shall be maintained with proper identification of joint,
welder etc. for all joints.
4) NDT shall be carried out as per approved procedure and the results shall be
recorded properly.
