ASME SECTION VIII

4.0 WELD LENGTH SHOWN IN SPOT RADIOGRAPHS:

4.1 Each radiograph shall clearly show a minimum of 6 inches (152 mm) of
weld length.

4.2 In addition to 4.1, all "four-way" junction radiographs shall clearly show not
less than four (4) inches (102 mm) of longitudinal weld length on each side
of the circumferential weld. A junction is considered a four-way when the
course stagger is 5T or less. T equals the thickness of the thicker plate.
5.0 EVALUATION OF INDICATIONS:

5.1 All relevant indications shall be evaluated in terms of the Acceptance


Criteria in this procedure.

5.2 Relevant indications not characterized as being a crack or zone of


incomplete fusion or penetration shall be evaluated as being:

5.2.1 Elongated indications if their length is more than three (3) times the
width.

5.2.2 Rounded indications if their length is equal to or less than three (3)
times the width.

6.0 GEOMETRIC UNSHARPNESS LIMITATION GUIDELINES:

The geometric unsharpness values in procedure RT-1 shall be used as a guide.

7.0 ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA FOR 100% RADIOGRAPHY OF DIVISION 1


VESSELS AND ALL RADIOGRAPY OF DIVISION 2 VESSELS:

Sections of welds that are shown by radiography to have any of the following
types of discontinuities are unacceptable. The weld shall be repaired and re-
radiographed in accordance with this procedure.

7.1 Any indication characterized as a crack or zone of incomplete fusion or


penetration.

7.2 Any other elongated indication which has a length greater than:

1/4 inch (6.3 mm) for T up to 3/4 inch (19 mm)


1/3 T for T from 3/4 inch (19 mm) to 2-1/4 inch (57 mm)
3/4 inch (19 mm) for T over 2-1/4 inch (57 mm)

ASME SECTION VIII

T = the thickness of the weld excluding any allowable reinforcement. For a


butt weld joining two members having different thicknesses at the weld, T
is the thinner of these two thicknesses. If a full penetration weld includes a
fillet weld, the thickness of the throat of the fillet shall be included in T.

7.3 Any group of aligned indications that have an aggregate length greater
than T in a length of 12 T, except where the distance between successive
imperfections exceeds 6L, where L is the length of the longest
imperfections in the group.

7.4 Rounded indications in excess of that shown as acceptable in Appendix 4


of Division 1 or in Appendix 8 of Division 2 of the ASME Section VIII Code.

8.0 ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA FOR SPOT RADIOGRAPHY OF DIVISION 1


VESSELS ONLY:

8.1 Welds in which the radiography shows any of the following types of
discontinuities are unacceptable until repaired and re-radiographed per this
procedure.

8.1.1 Any indication characterized as a crack or zone of incomplete


fusion or penetration.

8.1.2 Indications characterized as slag inclusions or cavities which have a


length greater than 2/3T where T is the thickness of the weld
excluding any allowable reinforcement. For a butt weld joining two
members having different thicknesses at the weld, T is the thinner of
these two thicknesses. If a full penetration weld includes a fillet
weld, the thickness of the throat of the fillet shall be included in T.
Maximum length of any such indication shall be 3/4 inch (19 mm).
Any such indication shorter than 1/4 inch (6.0 mm) shall be
acceptable for any plate thickness.

8.1.3 If several indications within the above limitations exist in line, the
weld shall be acceptable if the sum of the longest dimensions of all
such indications is not more than T in a length of 6T (or
proportionately for radiographs shorter than 6T) and if the longest
indications considered are separated by at least 3L of acceptable
weld metal, where L is the length of the longest indication.

8.2 Rounded indications are not a factor in the acceptability of welds required
to be spot radiographed.

9.0 EVALUATION AND RE-EXAMINATION:

9.1 When a spot radiograph is graded acceptable in accordance with Section


8.0, the entire length of weld represented by this radiograph is acceptable.

9.2 When a spot radiograph discloses welding which does not comply with the
minimum requirements of Section 8.0, two additional radiographs (tracers)
shall be taken in the same weld unit at locations away from the original
spot.

9.2.1 If the two additional radiographs (tracers) show welding which meets
the minimum quality requirements of Section 8.0, the entire weld
unit represented by the three radiographs is acceptable. The
unacceptable welding disclosed by the first of the three radiographs
shall be removed and the area repaired and re-radiographed.

9.2.2 If either of the two additional radiographs (tracers) shows


unacceptable welding, the entire unit of weld represented shall be
rejected. At the option of the manufacturer:
EITHER
The entire unit of rejected weld shall be removed, the joint rewelded
and spot radio-graphed in accordance with this procedure.
OR
The entire unit of rejected weld shall be 100% radiographed and
only unacceptable welding need be repaired and spot radiographed
in accordance with this procedure.
