Standard Welding Procedure Specification (SWPS) for Gas Tungsten Arc Welding followed by Shielded Metal Arc Welding of Chromium-Molybdenum Steel (M-5A/P-5A), ER90S-B3 and E9018-B3, 1/8 inch [3 mm] through 1/2 inch [13 mm] Thick, As-Welded Condition; 1/8 inch [3 mm] through 1-1/2 inch [38 mm] Thick, PWHT Condition, Primarily Pipe Applications

This standard contains the essential welding variables for chromium-molybdenum steel in the thickness range of 1/8 inch [3 mm] through 1/2 inch [13 mm] in the as-welded condition; or 1/8 inch [3 mm] through 1-1/2 inch [38 mm] in the postweld heat treated (PWHT) condition, using manual gas tungsten arc welding followed by manual shielded arc welding. It cites the base metals and operating conditions necessary to make the weldment, the filler metal specifications, and the allowable joint designs for groove welds. This standard welding procedure specification (SWPS) was developed primarily for pipe applications.
