The article provides tips for U.S. welding inspectors on checking austenitic stainless steel tube and pipe systems in hygienic applications, in compliance to the American Welding Society (AWS) D18.1/D18.1M specification. Welding inspectors are required to verify preconstruction weld sampling (PWS) as acceptable per AWS D18.1/D18.1M Section 6 and use it as a standard during production day.
