 VS1901
Introduction to Pipe Welding

Objectives:
The pipe welding series is designed to demonstrate basic welding techniques for various types of pipe materials. This introductory presentation describes the welding processes which are most commonly used in pipe welding, and the metals with which the welder can expect to work. Some of the fundamental joints are also explained. Particular attention is paid to safety, which should be a primary concern for every welder.

Students will be able to:

  • Identify basic pipe materials.
  • Identify three welding processes.
  • Describe welding safety rules.
  • Identify basic pipe welding joints.
  •  
     

     

     
     VS1902
    Joint Design and Preparation

    Objectives:
    This presentation will introduce you to the preparation and alignment of pipe joints. This is a necessary first step in any pipe welding operation. Joint designs are introduced and procedures are demonstrated for the assembly of joints. Joint preparation is a crucial step in pipe welding. It must be performed properly to keep the pipe within its design specifications.

    Students will be able to:

  • Describe and set up square butt joint welds with and without a drill ring.
  • Describe and set up bevel joint welds with and without a drill ring.
  • Identify the 1G, 2G, 5G, and 6G positions for pipe welding.
  •

    Carbon Steel Pipe Welding

    Objectives:
    This presentation will introduce you to basic procedures used to weld carbon steel pipe. It can be welded with either the shield metal arc process or the gas metal arc process. Techniques are introduced for welding with these processes in the 1G, 2G, 5G, and 6G positions.

    Students will be able to:

  • Describe the procedure to weld carbon steel pipe with the shielded metal arc process.
  • Describe the procedure to weld carbon steel pipe with the gas metal arc process.
  •  
     

     

     
     VS1904
    Aluminum Pipe Welding

    Objectives:
    This presentation will introduce you to techniques for welding aluminum pipe. Two processes are demonstrated: gas metal arc welding and gas tungsten welding. Aluminum pipe may be welded in four different positions: 3G, 2G, 5G, and 6G. Methods to weld in all of these positions will be explained.

    Students will be able to:

  • Describe the procedure to weld aluminum pipe with the gas tungsten arc welding process.
  • Describe the procedure to weld aluminum pipe with gas metal arc welding process.
  •  
     

     

     
     VS1905
    Alloyed Steel Pipe Welding

    Objectives:
    This presentation will introduce you to techniques for welding stainless steel pipe. Three processes are demonstrated: the shielded metal arc process, the gas metal arc process, and the gas tungsten arc process. Stainless steel pipe may be welded in four different positions: 1G, 2G, 5G, and 6G. Methods to weld in all of these positions will be explained.

    Students will be able to:

  • Describe the procedure to weld stainless steel pipe with the shielded metal arc process.
  • Describe the procedure to weld stainless steel pipe with the gas metal arc process.
  • Describe the procedure to weld stainless steel pipe with the gas tungsten arc process.
