Whenever someone comes in and says "I am a welder and I am looking for a standard. I can't remember which one." it makes our job extremely easy. Invariably the answer is the API 1104. It covers the gas and arc welding of butt, fillet, and socket welds in carbon and low-alloy steel piping used in the compression, pumping, and transmission of crude petroleum, petroleum products, fuel gases, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and where applicable, covers welding on distribution systems. Now we have bundled it together with this handy study guide so you have everything you need.
This set includes the API 1104: Welding of Pipelines and Related Facilities and the study guide for the code book. Welding of Pipelines and Related Facilities presents methods for the production of high-quality welds through the use of qualified welders using approved welding procedures, materials and equipment in a new, clearly understood format. The latest 1104 edition presents inspection methods to ensure the proper analysis of welding quality through the use of qualified technicians and approved methods and equipment. The study guide contains information on the use of API Standard 1104, 20th edition, which will assist the student in preparing for using the standard as well as preparing for code-related examinations.
