What welding positions are required when making a 5G weld on pipe?

To determine

The welding positions required when making a 5G weld on pipe.


The welding done on a pipe in horizontally fixed position is termed as the 5G position. To weld in this position, a welder is supposed to have necessary skills to master 5G welding position.


Figure 1: The pipe is fixed horizontally in 5G position welding.

In 5G position welding, the weld changes position from 6 o'clock overhead position to 3 o'clock vertical position. The contour of the weld changes.

While welding in the overhead position, the shape of bead changes. The shape of bead can be seen in the figure below.


Figure 2: The shape of bead changes according to the position of the bead.

There are two sections A-A and B-B in the figure above. The shape of bead changes as per the location of the bead. At section A-A, the bead is bulging in shape at the center and at the sides it gets undercut...
