If you have D1. Again not rocket science, but I hate seeing guys re-inventing the wheel. I have never seen a xray rig on a water job, but I have yet to work on one. Nebraska – Section We will be doing a 36″ waterline and that is the only code that is implied on the drawings. Puget Sound Olympic – Section Rochester – Section That largely depends on length of line and psi- might be something to look into.
Having read postings from you in the past, it appears you tend to focus and specialize more in the gas and energy business than large bore waterlines. Powered by mwForum 2. I would say though, if I was going to contract a decent sized large bore waterline, and especially if I was not going to self perform or be able to be onsite for its daily managment, I would absoutely recruit a guy with experience and expertise as a lead man to oversee and train zwwa welders in a few of the awwz like but strap fit ups.
It required the voltage module to be installed on my Classic D, which I wasnt going to spend for, so he by passed the code wth charpy testing on my weld c26 and I was good to go. It will typically refer to D1. It is essentially AWS D1. Welding of gasketed joints may require modification to the parameters of this welding standard. They refered everything to the welding inspector.
Anyone know the AWWA c code ?
Generically speaking, my experience with AWWA is that it doesn’t have a lot of teeth. As I have recently completed inspection on a storm water pumping station with AWWA listed as the ruling code, I will say I was suprised that the code offered little guidance.
North Florida – Section It also list the welds to be performed with 70xx. I’ve worked 5 large c260 waterlines as a rig welder, one 42″ short line I contracted myself, so I have some experience but there are others who specialize in that niche and can speak more authoritavely than myself. Arizona – Section Looks to me the welding falls under D1. Nevada – Section Florida West Coast – Section Of course, every inspector will have their say in intrepretation of this code.
He swears by it, as you know, most rig welders prefer to avoid wire. There are several guys on this forum with such experience who might be looking for work, I’ve heard most of their work is slow untill after the new year so they migh be available. So, am I right aawa the beleif that the onsite inspector can interpret this at his discretion?
I did initial inspection and follow up inspection after they allowed repairs to parts that didn’t line up with their pumping station. Good visual weld appearance is alway appreciated but rarely nit-picked and not to the standards most pipeline or facility welders produce. By Cactusthewelder Date Not being familiar with the accept reject to D1.
When will they learn?!? Other welding required c26 field fabrication and installation of specials and appurtenances is also discussed.
