Test Weld

PIPE INCLINED FIXED (45° ±5°) AND NOT ROTATED DURING WELDING.

(G) TEST POSITION H-L045 (6G VERTICAL UP)

(H) TEST POSITION H-L045 (6GR VERTICAL UP) (T-, Y- OR K-CONNECTIONS)

Figure 5.4 (Continued)—Positions of Test Pipe or Tubing for Groove Welds plane. The pipe shall not be rotated during welding. See Figure 5.4(C).

5.8.5.4 Position H-, J-L 045 (6G down) or H-L 045 (6G up) Pipe Inclined Fixed. The pipe shall be inclined at 45 degrees with the horizontal. The pipe shall not be rotated during welding. See Figure 5.4(E and G).

5.8.5.5 Position H-, J-L 045 Restricted (6GR). Test for complete joint penetration groove welds of tubular T, Y-, and K-connections—The pipe shall be inclined at 45 degrees with the horizontal. The pipe (or tube) shall not be rotated during welding. See Figure 5.4(E), and Figures 7.4, 8.4.

5.8.6 Plate Fillet Welds. In making the tests to qualify fillet welds, the test plate positions shall be as indicated below (illustrated in Figure 5.5):

5.8.6.1 Position PA (IF) Flat. The plates are placed such that each fillet weld is deposited with its axis approximately horizontal and its throat approximately vertical. See Figure 5.5(A).

5.8.6.2 Position PB (2F) Horizontal. The plates are placed such that each fillet weld is deposited on the upper side of a horizontal surface and against a vertical surface. See Figure 5.5(B).
