1) This WPS must be used in conjunction with WPS No. GEN.

2) All passes shall be made with the addition of filler metal.

3) For impact tested fabrication only, minimum allowable travel speed shall be determined by the
following formula (fabrication without impact testing has no travel speed requirements):

Minimum Allowable Travel Speed = S = Volts X Amps
