AJM23-35-WRP-DFT-000

1. General
This Specification covers the welding defects repair detected by the N.D.T applicable
procedures.
2. References
Repair shall be complied with the requirements of the following codes, standards and
Purchaser requirements.
API 650, Edition 2007,
ASME section V
ASME section IX
3. Application
Elimination of Surface Defects without Welding (Minor Defects)
Weld metal surface defects may be removed by grinding or machining and shall not be
repaired by welding provided the requirements as follow:
The remaining thickness of section is not reduced below that required.
The depression after defect elimination is blended uniformly into surrounding surface.
The area examined after blending by magnetic particle or liquid penetrant method meet the
requirements of applicable codes to ensure that the defect has been removed or indication
reduced to an acceptable limit.
Defect Removal in Repair by Welding (Major Repairs)
Unacceptable defects detected visually or by NDT controls shall be removed by mechanical
or thermal gouging process, the area to be prepared for repair shall be examined and will
comply with the requirements of NDT procedures.
Grinding after arc gouging and prior to repair welding shall eliminate a minimum of 1.6 mm of
base material.
When the distance of subsequence defects will be less than 50 mm, will be repaired
together.
If the defects to repair are any type of cracks, always will be made a ultrasonic control of the
defects in the adjacent area, to ensure that there is not any type of micro cracks, before to
start to repair.
After the repair done, the surface shall be blended uniformly into the surrounding surface.
The weld repair shall be in accordance with applicable code and submitted to the purchaser
for approval.
The examination of weld repair(s) shall be repeated as required for the original welds
including 4 inches on each end of the repair.

Detailed Repair Procedure


All essential variables used in the welding repair shall be in accordance with the applicable
SMAW or GTAW welding procedure, latest approved edition.
Overlap or Excessive Convexity.
These defects shall be reduced by removal of excess weld metal by grinding.
Grinding

Excessive concavity of welds or craters, under cutting (0.8 mm over). These defects shall be
cleaned and deposited additional weld metal. Undercuts less than 0.8 mm shall be cleaned
by grinding.

The defects shall be removed by chipping, grinding, machining or arc-air gouging


when arc-air gouging is used, the gouged surface shall be ground to clean metal
surface.
Step 2. Examination on the Repair Welding Defects.
After defects elimination, the area shall be re- examined by magnetic particle method
or liquid penetrant method to ensure that defects have been removed. Qualified NDE
personnel and the qualified NDE procedures shall perform the examination.
Step 3. Repair Welding.
The repair welding shall be performed in accordance with an approved and qualified
WPS in this specification. Qualified welders shall perform this welding. After repair
welding, the surface shall be blended uniformly into the surrounding surface.
Step 4. Examination on the Repair Welds.
The examination required for the original weld or the base material shall be repeated
for the weld repair. The examination shall be performed by the qualified NDE
personnel and qualified NDE procedures.
4. Documentation
All welding repair shall be documented.
