Leaks at toes of weld when hydraulically tested with water psi. ASTM A is described as electric-resistance-welded steel pipe. Grade A contains 0.

ASTM A and ASME SA Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes

Grade B contains 0. Depending on which formula I use, Carbon Equivalent is from 0.


Some of the pipes are painted and some are coated with a ‘varnish’ like material. My best guess is that hydrogen from the coating, along with the hardness of the HAZ is causing underbead cracks at the toes of the weld.

Any suggestions for weld procedure would be appreciated. Several things pop up flags in your message. Which in itself, a single-pass a1135 is less then desireable for a leak proof system.

ASTM A135 and ASME SA135 Carbon Steel Pipes

If you want to find out what’s really happening at the failure site, I would advise removing the portion of weld that’s adjacent to the leak flush with the wall and perform a PT test. See if it’s a crack through the wall or is it LOF.
