Welding Procedure Specification (WPS)
Like a recipe for welders, a Welding Procedure Specification, or WPS, are the written documents describing standard welding procedures for a given type of job.
Our inspectors know each industry, alloy or material type and the different requirements and specifications they are required to meet.
When testing for fitness of service before deployment, every weld procedure is checked, to test for adherence to the WPS-PQR. Prior to certification, fitness of the PRQ is determined by sending a test weld through a material testing laboratory.
Stringent record keeping of every flaw or fault traces back to the company and welder responsible for both so that QA/QC can be tracked, managed and reported on.
