It has been recognized that repair welding plays an important role of in the long term, safe operation of pressure equipment. In 2009, the Japan Welding Engineering Society (JWES) published guidelines for repair welding of pressure equipment, to meet the great need for the safe operation and proper maintenance of aging plants. This paper gives brief descriptions of three types of repair welding method, “Flaw excavation and repair welding”, “Butt-welded insert plates”, and “External fillet welded patches”, which welding methods are based on Chemical Plant Welding Research Committee of JWES.
