Qualifying welders for different process using same coupon

Qualifying welders for different process using same coupon

Postby laurudolphy » Tue Jan 28, 2014 1:55 pm

Dear Folks,
My previous query was if I could delete one of the processes when writing a coupon, especially when I had a PQR which was qualified using combined process.

Mawsamit has replied that it cannot be done, and has quoted an AWS Committee interpretation .

Taking my query to the next level.

I have a PQR/WPS for a combined process i.e. Pipe with SMAW for the root pass and FCAW for the Hot,, Fill and Cap.

Using this WPS, if I were to have a welder who would weld a coupon for both processes, SMAW + FCAW, can I qualify that welder for SMAW and FCAW individually, which means that he is qualified to weld a joint using SMAW process, without backing and FCAW process with backing.

Please advise.

Regards
