ASME Definitions, Consumables, Welding Positions

ASME P Material Numbers Explained ASME has adopted their own designation for welding processes, which are very different from the ISO definitions adopted by EN24063.


Description Oxyfuel Gas Welding Shielded Metal Arc Welding (MMA) Submerged Arc Welding Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG/MAG) Flux Cored Wire Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (TIG) Plasma Arc Welding

Straight polarity = Electrode -ve Reverse polarity = Electrode +ve ASME F Numbers

F Number 1 2 3 4 5 6 2X 3X 4X

General Description Heavy rutile coated iron powder electrodes :- A5.1 : E7024 Most Rutile consumables such as :- A5.1 : E6013 Cellulosic electrodes such as :- A5.1 : E6011 Basic coated electrodes such as : A5.1 : E7016 and E7018 High alloy austenitic stainless steel and duplex :- A5.4 : E316L-16 Any steel solid or cored wire (with flux or metal) Aluminium and its alloys Copper and its alloys Nickel alloys

(vertically upwards or downwards). ASME Welding Positions Graphic Representation Note the welding progression.X represents any number 0 to 9 ASME A Numbers These refer to the chemical analysis of the deposited weld and not the parent material. A1 Plain unalloyed carbon manganese steels. A2 to A4 Low alloy steels containing Moly and Chrome Moly A8 Austenitic stainless steels such as type 316.5X 6X 7X Titanium Zirconium Hard Facing Overlay Note:. must always be stated and it is an essential variable for both procedures and performance qualifications. Welding Positions For Groove welds:Welding Position Flat Horizontal Vertical Upwards Progression Vertical Downwards Progression Overhead Pipe Fixed Horizontal Pipe Fixed @ 45 degrees Upwards Pipe Fixed @ 45 degrees Downwards Welding Positions For Fillet welds:Welding Position Flat (Weld flat joint at 45 degrees) Test Position 1F ISO and EN PA Test Position 1G 2G 3G 3G 4G 5G 6G 6G ISO and EN PA PC PF PG PE PF HL045 JL045 . They only apply to welding procedures in steel materials.

2 Basically there are three inclinations involved.1 and QW461.90 degrees . y y y 2F 2FR 3F 3F 4F 5F PB PB PF PG PD PF Flat. which includes from 0 to 15 degrees inclination 15 .Horizontal Horizontal Rotated Vertical Upwards Progression Vertical Downwards Progression Overhead Pipe Fixed Horizontal Welding Positions QW431.80 degrees inclination Vertical. 80 .

.For each of these inclinations the weld can be rotated from the flat position to Horizontal to overhead.
