6g weld test
what does a 6g weld test consist of?
there are a whole crapload of different 6g tests.
the only thing they all have in common is the position.
a 6g position is where the axis of the pipe is on a 45 degree angle.
the reason a 6g position is used is because it tests the welder on his good side as well as the bad...one side will always seem easier depending on if your are right handed or left handed.
some of the more common 6g tests are :
6 inch schedule 80 carbon steel pipe 37 1/2 degree bevels 1/8 gap with 1/8 land. 6010 root, 7018 fill and cap
6 inch schedule 80 carbon steel pipe 37 1/2 degree bevels 1/8 gap with no land. tig root pass and second pass, 7018 fill and cap
