The best way to avoid common mistakes in pipe welding is to understand the process and working conditions associated with the process.
Firstly, the pipes to be joined need to be prepared correctly, making sure the edges to be joined a clean and straight. If this is not done correctly there can be problems including a lack of fusion in the weld, slag trapments and hydrogen inclusion.
Aside from the preparation, there are a number of challenges associated with welder working conditions. The process itself can produce a risk of injury unless the correct precautions are taken. The risks include the heat created by the welding tools, the bright light created by the arc, and the release of particles or gases.
Pipe welding can add additional hazards due to the working conditions associated with pipes. This includes having to work in uncomfortable or even dangerous positions and locations, including underground or underwater. Other factors may include working in very hot or cold conditions, depending on the location of the pipe as well as hazards associated with the contents of the pipe, whether sewage or oil.
However, with the correct preparation, training and equipment ,many of these challenges can be solved.
