Course description: An introduction to welding of pipe using the shielded metal arc welding process (SMAW), including electrode selection, equipment setup, and safe shop practices. Emphasis on weld positions 1G, 2G, 5G, and 6G using ER6010 welding electrode.
Course objectives: Students completing this course should be proficient in welding 6″ Schedule # 40 wall pipe with an E-6010 root, fill, and cap. This being done in the horizontal 2-G weld position Describe equipment and required pipe preparation and perform 1G, 2G, 5G,and 6G welds.
Lecture: Examine SMAW equipment and required pipe joint preparation, to perform 1G, 2G, 5G, and 6Gwelds, in the uphill weld progression.
Lab: Students completing satisfactorily will have the skills necessary to complete industry standards quality welds in the 2G, 3G, 5G, and 6G welding positions, and downhill progression with ER6010 welding electrode. Also have the knowledge to set up welding equipment, select the proper welding electrode for each joint configuration.
