    Structural Integrity Technical Group: Latest Developments in Fitness for Service Procedures in BS7910, R6 and ASME/ API579

    The application of fitness for service procedures in different industries worldwide is heavily dominated by three key codes and standards: BS7910, R6, and ASME/ API579. By a rare coincidence all three of these important documents have either been revised recently or are in the process of being revised in the very near future. Experts with detailed knowledge of the developments in each document will make presentations to help highlight the most significant changes. The speakers are highly experienced engineers who chair a committee or are members of one or more of the committees overlooking the developments in these codes.

    This is a Member only event, specifically for members of the South Western, South Wales and Northumbrian branches of The Welding Institute. Other members may be able to attend should spaces become available.

    Overview: This talk will look at the metals that require purging prior to welding, explain the reasons why this process is done and then show and demonstrate the products that HFT manufacture.

    • ·         Inflatable Pipe Purging Systems
    • ·         Weld Purge Monitors capable of reading down to 1ppm
    • ·         Water Soluble Purging Film
    • ·         Argweld Weld Trailing Shields
    • ·         Flexible Welding Enclosures

    Using these products saves welders time and money on expensive argon but the end result is bright, shiny, oxide free welds that don’t require any post cleaning and no rejections.

    Speaker: Luke Keane (Technical Sales Manager - Huntingdon Fusion Technologies)


    Speaker Biography: Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT) have been in business for over 45 years.  They are inventors, designers and manufacturers of weld purging equipment.

    Luke joined the company 7 years ago in a sales role but quickly progressed to become Technical Sales Manager looking after our 45 Worldwide Distributors.  He has also been heavily involved in product development, taking feedback directly from site in order to improve our inflatable purging systems and weld purge monitors.

    More recently we have re-designed our Weld Trailing Shield and Luke played a pivotal role in that development.  He has also been working very closely with a nuclear client involved with HPC and designed a unique blocking and purging system for the welding of duplex sump boxes.

    Overview: TWI has invented a highly disruptive, new sub-surface machining technique called ‘CoreFlow.’ The solid state process is a development of friction stir welding which allows for sub-surface networks to be integrated into structures.

    The solid state process is a development of friction stir welding which allows for sub-surface networks to be integrated into structures. This revolutionary new technology already has potential uses in heat exchangers and cooling systems as well as for integrated fluid management and light-weighting. This exclusive webinar introduces the new technique as well as explaining how it can be beneficial to industries ranging from aerospace and automotive to IT, communication and beyond.

    Speaker: João Gandra (Principle Project Leader, TWI Ltd).

    Speaker Biography: João specialises in friction welding processes, including Friction Stir Welding. His current role is to support TWI Member companies seeking to adopt these technologies. He acts as a consultant during product development, prototyping and technology transfer. Most of his experience was gathered in the aerospace, rail and automotive sectors. Before joining TWI, João completed a PhD in Manufacturing and Industrial Management at the Technical University of Lisbon, where he also worked as an assistant lecturer. He has published over 20 peer-reviewed publications, actively participating in international standards committees like the ISO 25239 for Friction Stir Welding

    NDT and Condition Monitoring Technical Group: Enhancing the Inspection Process using Advanced NDT Methods

    In recent years there have been significant developments in technology which allow considerably increased performance of NDT methods, in terms of both the ability to detect imperfections and of efficiency of the inspection process. This has largely been enabled by the application of digital technology. While these developments are familiar to NDT professionals, it is not necessarily the case that those responsible for specifying the inspections to be used during the fabrication process of for ensuring fabrication quality are up to speed with the benefits that these advancements allow.

    The aim of this meeting is to present the benefits of a variety of advanced NDT systems and methods and how they may be used to improve the efficiency of inspections both during fabrication and in-service. It is aimed at welding engineers, those involved in ensuring fabrication quality, project engineers responsible for specifying NDT requirements and maintenance engineers.
