Q: The Maximum Interpass temperature recorded on my BS EN ISO 15614-1 WPQR (S355 Carbon Steel MAG Butt Weld in Plate) is 229°C. Surely the welding Inspector has made a mistake...everyone knows it should be 250°C?

A- 20mm

B- 10mm

Q: I've been told that if I weld a 30mm thick fillet weld for a BS EN 287-1 test I will get a range of approval of 5mm and above, is this the best test to take?

A: Not quite, BS EN 287-1 gives you a range of approval of 3mm and above for any fillet weld test piece thickness over 3mm. It sounds like there is some confusion with another standard that offers a similar range of approval but references welding procedure qualifications, not welder qualifications.
