The user may require submittal of the procedure for approval prior to the start of PWHT. If access to the process side is impractical, such as on piping or smalldiameter vessels, hardness testing shall be done on the opposite side. Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. Variables affecting the depth of residual stresses are welding heat input, base material thickness, and attachment weld size.

Decades of successful service have shown them to be generally resistant to a form of hydrogen stress cracking HSC called sulfide stress cracking SSC.
Other materials may be vulnerable to cracking, but these materials are outside the scope of this standard. Do not take hardness readings on scaled or dp0472 areas.

Users of this NACE International standard are responsible for reviewing appropriate health, safety, environmental, and regulatory documents and for determining their applicability in relation to this standard prior to its use. All pressure-containing weldments or internal attachment weldments to the pressure boundary are included.
This standard was originally prepared in by NACE Task Group T, which was composed of corrosion consultants, corrosion engineers, and bace specialists associated with the petroleum refining industry.
The term may is used to state something considered optional. C This form of environmental cracking can also occur in nonsulfide environments such as hydrofluoric acid.
HSC has been found to occur in high-strength materials or zones of a hard or high-strength microstructure in an otherwise soft material. Unless otherwise specified by the user, one hardness test should be made for each 3 m 10 ft of weld seam. However, other processes that promote aqueous corrosion of steel and promote hydrogen charging such as hydrofluoric acid can also cause HSC. External attachment weldments are sometimes included as discussed in Paragraph 6.
Overview of NACE International Standard RP - OnePetro
For other welding processes, only one size variation between the electrode or filler metal size used for the qualification tests and for subsequent production welding should be permitted. Using these hardness test methods, the maximum weld deposit hardness should be HV This is believed to be attributable to a lower threshold stress for carbonate cracking. Then remove and reverse the bar, and again move the spacing button to the extreme front position.
Hardness Criterial and Guidelines. The welds for refinery equipment and piping are made to conform to various codes, and according to these codes, these carbon steels are classified as P-1, Group 1or 2. It was reaffirmed in and revised in and Generally, residual stresses are reduced by PWHT. This type of cracking and the use of PWHT as a prevention method are also addressed in this standard. This is because PWHT has two primary benefits: One example is tray-attachment welds in vessels.
External attachment welds often generate residual stresses extending through the entire wall thickness, and if so, they should also receive PWHT.
From this literature and field experience, the following methods of controlling weldment hardness have been determined. It also provides guidelines on filler metal selection to help meet the production weld deposit hardness criteria. Other types of in-service cracking not addressed by this standard are primarily mechanical in nature.
In conjunction with welding variables, this can produce high hardness in HAZs that might not be adequately softened by this specified thermal stress relief. Nothing contained in this NACE International standard is to be construed as granting any right, by implication or otherwise, to manufacture, sell, or use in connection with any method, apparatus, or product covered by Letters Patent, or as indemnifying or protecting anyone against liability for infringement of Letters Patent.
The user shall specify when this hardness testing is required and which of the following practices are required, after reviewing the intended service for the weldment.
With the temper bead technique, the cap pass should be applied so that the edges of the weld beads come within 3. NACE International requires that action be taken to reaffirm, revise, or withdraw this standard no later naace five years from the date of initial publication.
The chemical analysis may be obtained by any of the following methods: Materials and welding conditions used for the procedure qualification tests should be equivalent to what is used for the equipment or piping. They are the basic materials of construction for pressure vessels, heat exchangers, storage tanks, and piping.
