Why you need an Expert for welding procedure (WPS) development and qualification (PQR)?

Qualitest Canada experienced staff can assist you in developing a welding procedure to align with your project requirements and keep within compliance of Clients specifications, Provincial requirements (ABSA, BC Boiler Safety, TSASK etc.), applicable construction codes and standards. We can also provide Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS) consulting and documentation interpretation.

Our Engineers are fully aware of the provincial requirements like ABSA, BC Boiler Safety, TSASK etc, and they can prepare your weld procedure as per your project requirements. We provide WPQ specs for ASME, CSA, AWS, API standards and Client’s requirements. This are the reasons, you need Expert for welding procedure (WPS) development and qualification (PQR).

A welding procedure qualification is necessary to ensure quality and durability of your welds. Each standard has its own nuances and details that require guidance from experienced professionals, like those found at Qualitest Canada.

Welding Procedure Development & Qualification

A WPS is the official document that describes a specific welding procedure that is used as a guide for your welders to insure they are using proper techniques to produce dependable and quality welds as per the code specification. A WPS is developed for each type of material being used as well as the different welding types and are usually based of off the specific codes from the ASME, CSA, AWS and API. Every welding procedure specification is backed by a procedure qualification record.

Procedure Qualification Record (PQR)

Once a WPS is developed or interpreted from client specification a welding procedure qualification record is required to support the WPS and insure that the procedure produces strong quality welds. A PQR can support one or several WPS as long as they fall under the same required specification. This is required and demonstrates that your company has the knowledge to perform this particular procedure and that your welds possess the correct metallurgical and material properties.

This is determined by sending a test weld through our material testing laboratory where we will certify the WPS with a PQR. Once the procedure is approved by the authority, we can also qualify your welders to assure the required knowledge and skill to perform this procedure is satisfactory. Contact Qualitest Canada by phone at 780-851-2020 or email at admin@qualitests.com to learn more about our WPS/PQR Development and welder testing.
