welding test

How much time is allowed for a 2" tube test with a .625 wall thickness? I was usually given a 4 hr. time limit to complete the test.


Time limits are not in the welding code or standard.

that is something imposed by the testing facility or contractor, or test supervisor.

It makes sense to have some type of time limit.

but I have not found that it is consistent from one test shop to another....even on the same exact test.
