Pipe welding update

An updated publication from Industrial Press, “Pipe welding procedures”, second edition, details the manipulating procedures used to weld pipe joints. Industries such as power plants, oil refineries, chemical plants, food processing plants, and those that operate cross-country pipelines have created a demand for welders who are capable of producing high quality pipe welds consistently. This book educates experienced welders about pipe welding, assists in training of pipe welders in trade schools, and helps those workers now working at the trade of pipe welding to enlarge their knowledge and improve their skills. Achieving a perfect pipe weld is tricky. The chapters in “Pipe welding procedures” detail the correct welding techniques that should be used as the weld progresses around the pipe joint. The author also points out potential mistakes and provides reasons for using the recommended procedures.
The reader will also find information on heat input and distribution, essentials of shielded metal-arc technology, distortion, pipe welding defects, welding safety, and qualification of the welding procedure and the welder.
The second edition includes new or expanded coverage of root bead, pulse current, gas tungsten arc welding, welding steel for low temperature (cryogenic) service, down hill welding, and much more.
The author, Hoobasar Rampaul, has worked as a pipe welder in refinery construction and maintenance, as a welding inspector, and as a teacher at the Hobart School of Welding Technology.
“Pipe welding procedures” is available through American Technical Publishers.
