Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: These compositional restrictions are based on hardenability calculations performed in 6 accordance with methods described in IIW 25 Document IX Hence, limiting weldment hardness does not prevent this form of cracking. Its acceptance does not in any respect preclude anyone, whether he or she has adopted the standard or not, from manufacturing, marketing, purchasing, or using products, processes, or procedures not in conformance with this standard.

This type of cracking and the use of PWHT as a prevention method are also addressed in this standard.
This should be done by applying the following additional essential variables, as appropriate. According to these codes and standards, these carbon steels are classified as P-No.
Experience has shown that accurate HAZ hardness measurements cannot be obtained effectively on most shop and field production welds using portable hardness testing methods.
Welding Research Council Bulletin No. Subtract the determined weld hardness from the test bar hardness. It was originally prepared inreafftied in and revised in and Also, additional welds should be hardness tested for each high-hardness weld that is found, at a rate determined by the user. Hardness Criterial and Guidelines. This waiver may be applied even if a different consumable is used for the root pass. Controlling weldment hardness does not prevent ASCC because high tensile stresses may still be present.
While this standard covers only P-No. The user may require submittal of the procedure for approval prior to the start of PWHT. Most petroleum refining equipment and piping is constructed of carbon steel having a minimum specified tensile strength of up to MPa 70, psiand in nearly every case, the equipment is fabricated by welding. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: This standard was originally prepared in by NACE Task Group T, which was composed of corrosion consultants, corrosion engineers, and other specialists associated with the petroleum refining industry.
Therefore, some companies in the refining industry are using one or more of the following practices to control HAZ hardnesses: However, identification of the specific environments to which the guidelines set forth in this standard are to be applied to prevent various forms of inservice environmental cracking is the responsibility of the user. Do not take hardness readings on scaled or discolored areas. Therefore, an enhanced stress-relieving heat treatment should be used to avoid carbonate cracking.
Overview of NACE International Standard RP - OnePetro
Advanced search Show search help. Materials and welding conditions used for the procedure qualification tests should be equivalent to what is used for the equipment or piping. Additional information on the use of preheat and heat input to control weldment hardness and susceptibility to delayed hydrogen cracking during fabrication is available.
A smooth, relatively flat surface improves the accuracy of hardness readings, and one method to achieve this is finish grinding with an 80 or finer grit sandpaper disc. Welderments are defined to include the weld deposit, base metal heat affected zones HAZS and adjacent base metal zones subject to residual stresses from welding.
They are nacs basic materials of construction for heat exchangers, pressure vessels, storage tanks, and piping.
Hardness limits and PWHT requirements for these exceptions i. Generally, residual stresses are reduced by PWHT. ASCC generally has three requirements: However, the practices recommended herein are intended to avoid in-service cracking, and are not intended to address cracking that can occur during fabrication, such as delayed hydrogen cracking. These methods do not sufficiently reduce residual stress, and therefore should nade be considered in lieu of thermal stress relief.

In both types of welds, hardness test results have typically been obtained from the points in which the hardness rp04472 cross the weld fusion lines and from representative areas of the heataffected zones. Ep0472 input shall be calculated using Equation 2: Other hardness testing techniques may be employed if approved by the user. Regardless of the method of corrective action taken, the weld deposits shall be retested to ensure that the corrective action has resulted in acceptable hardness values.
Figure 1 is a simplified schematic showing the interrelationships of the various cracking mechanisms discussed in this standard.
