Restricted-300x228

RESTRICTED WELDING

6GR Welding Position in accordance with AWS D1.1. Standard. This is often called restriction welding, which the “R” in the term 6GR is with restriction ring, while 6G in the term 6GR is the same as in 6G positions. The difference with the 6G and 6GR position is the restriction ring and the bevel preparation.

Shielded Metal Arc Welding - Pipe

SHIELDED METAL ARC WELDING (SMAW) PIPE

This course covers the knowledge and skills that apply to welding pipe. Topics include pipe positions, joint geometry, and preparation with emphasis placed on bead application, profile, and discontinuities. Upon completion, students should be able to perform SMAW welds to applicable codes on carbon steel pipe with prescribed electrodes in various positions. This course is designed to enhance skills with the shielded metal arc (stick) welding process. Emphasis is placed on advancing manipulative skills with SMAW electrodes on varying joint geometry. Upon completion, students should be able to perform groove welds on carbon steel with prescribed electrodes in the flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions.

Course Length: 8 weeks Course Hours: 320
