AWS- A5.01M/A5.01:2008 Procurement Guidelines for Welding Consumables


A5.01M/A5.01:2008 (ISO 14344:2002 MOD) Procurement Guidelines for Consumables —  Welding and  Allied Processes — Flux and Gas Shielded Electrical Welding Processes (Historical), provides a means by which the information needed for the procurement of welding consumables to an AWS filler metal specification can be stated clearly, concisely, and completely. It includes a method by which the heat, lot, testing, and certification requirements that are essential to so many of today’s welding applications can be specified in the procurement document. This specification makes use of both U.S. Customary Units and the International System of Units (SI). Since these are not equivalent, each system must be used independently of the other.

This standard contains the essential welding variables for chromium-molybdenum steel in the thickness range of 1/8 through 1/2 in. in the as-welded condition, or 1/8 in. through 1-1/2 in. in the postweld heat treated (PWHT) condition, using manual shielded metal 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 welding procedure specification (WPS) was developed primarily for pipe applications. ISBN 087171-593-7
