Abstract : The information contained in this report is intended to assist both Navy and shipyard/contractor personnel engaged in the welding and inspection of commercially pure titanium seawater piping systems for U.S. Navy surface ships. This report provides recommendations, requirements and guidance information on quality control, materials, welding and inspection for fabrication of titanium pipe welds. The fabrication requirements contained in this report are taken from NAVSEA technical publication S9074-AR-GIB-010/278 Requirements for Fabrication Welding and Inspection, and Casting Inspection and Repair for Machinery, Piping and Pressure Vessels. The mandatory requirements, as indicated by the word shall, are considered to be the minimum acceptable for first quality workmanship. Recommendations and guidance information is not mandatory. The contents of this report are drawn from many sources and have been selected to complement numerous NAVSEA publications without in any way modifying those documents.
