Re: NDT after PWHT

See B31.3 Para. 341.3.1.(a) "For P-Nos. 3, 4, and 5 materials, examination shall be performed after completion of any heat treatment."

This implies that P1 and P2 materials do not require examination after heat treatment UNLESS otherwise specified by the contract or relevant procedures.

MT must be carriedout after any PWHT for detectingany stress cracks.

Yes you are right MT, is for detecting cracks (amongst other defects), however the Code writers are very experienced in the welding and heat-treating of standard materials (i.e. Group P1) and are sufficiently confident that proper PWHT of such materials will not cause cracking to be able to codify this with no requirement for PWHT MT. So in the case of welding plain carbon (P1)steels, "must" does not apply.
