in this edition and 3.3 in 2005 edition);
?€? MODIFY the process requirements (SEE 3.4 in this edition and 3.4 in
2005 edition);
?€? ADD the requirements for macroscopic inspection items; ADD the
requirements for 1 080MPa rail welded joints (SEE 3.5 in this edition and 3.5 in 2005 edition);
?€? MODIFY the requirements for hardness of welded joints (SEE 3.5 in this edition and 3.5 in 2005 edition);
?€? MODIFY the inspection method (SEE Chapter 4 in this edition and
Chapter 4 in 2005 edition);
?€? MODIFY the inspection rules (SEE Chapter 5 in this edition and Chapter 5 in 2005 edition);
?€? MODIFY the Annex A, Gas pressure welding records of rails (SEE Annex
A in this edition and Annex A in 2005 edition);
?€? MODIFY the Annex B, Records of weld fracture defects (SEE Annex B in
this edition).

TB/T 1632.1-2014 Welding of rails - Part 1. General specification
3 Requirements
3.1 Welding rail requirements
The rails for gas pressure welding shall meet the requirements of Chapter 4 in TB/T 1632.1-2014.
3.2 Equipment and material requirements
3.2.1 Automated gas pressure welding equipment shall be adopted in
preference. In the welding process, it shall be able to automatically record the change of parameters such as gas flow, rail-end pressure, etc. over time. 3.2.2 The purity of oxygen used for gas pressure welding of rails shall not be less than 99.5%, while the purity of acetylene shall not be less than 98%. 3.3 Personnel requirements
Each welding operator shall hold a job training certificate issued by the technical institution approved by the railway authority.
3.4 Process requirements
3.4.1 Welding environment requirements. The welding places shall have no rain or heavy fog, at a temperature of not lower than 0??C. When the temperature is below 0??C, measures of heat preservation shall be taken for the oxygen and acetylene cylinders. Meanwhile, early drying shall be carried out within the range of 400mm on each end face of the rails to be welded. Wind shall not be greater than Level 5. In case of above Level 4, wind shielding measures shall be taken.
3.4.2 POLISH the end faces of rails prior to welding. The allowable deviation of the end face inclination shall be 0.2mm. SEE Figure 1.
3.4.3 For the alignment clamping operation of rails, alignment shall be based on the working edges on the top of the rail and the side of the railhead. 3.4.4 The flame surface of the heater shall be parallel to the end face of the rail.
3.4.5 The convex shearing process shall be carried out automatically. The convex shearing process shall not cause damage to the joints and the rail parent metal. After convex shearing, there shall be no macroscopic cracks on or welding slag squeezed into the surfaces. The maximum convex shearing allowance (the height of weld reinforcement after convex shearing) for each part of the joint is as follows. 2mm for railhead; 2.5mm for railhead jaw; 2mm for rail web; 1.5mm for rail flange.
reinforcement of the rail flange shall be under smooth transition. Longitudinal grinding shall be carried out along the rails. It is not allowed to carry out horizontal grinding. There shall be no grinding burn on the rail surfaces. Misalignment in the vertical and horizontal directions on the non-working faces of the welded joints shall be conducted with longitudinal grinding transition. 3.4.10 An imitation-type grinding machine shall be used to perform shape finishing on the top surfaces of the rails and the working edges on the sides of the railheads for the welded joints. Shape finishing shall maintain the contour shape of railheads. The length of the shape finishing shall not exceed the limit of 400mm on both sides of the weld center line. Shape finishing shall not cause any mechanical or thermal damages to the welded joints or rails. Shape
finishing shall not be used correct the excessive flatness deviation and excessive joint misalignment.
3.4.11 When a mobile gas pressure welding machine is used for CWR
(continuous welded rail) long rail welding, it shall be operated in coordination with the CWR laying process. During locking welding, dwell convex shearing shall be adopted. When the welded joints are cooled to below 300??C, it is allowed to remove dwell pressure.
3.4.12 Mass production shall be carried out after passing the type inspection. The production process shall be the same as the test specimens of the type inspection.
3.4.13 The welded joints (finished products) of each rail shall be marked. The markings shall be located on the same side of rail web of the welded long rails, 1m to 3m away from the welds. In addition, the markings shall be clear, upright and identifiable for at least 5 years (or 1 overhaul cycle). The marking method shall ensure that the welded joints (finished products) of each rail are traceable based on the record sheet.
3.4.14 After welding, the following information shall be recorded (REFER to Annex A).
a) rail markings, laying positions and welded joint markings;
b) environmental conditions (including temperature, wind, precipitation and measures taken);
c) model of the welding machine;
d) welding and normalizing processes (including welding pressure, oxygen and acetylene flow, heating time, swing frequency and width of the heater); e) quality inspection and flaw detection results after welding;
f) welding operation group;
g) names of welders and inspectors;
