Wrapper plates and back heads may be renewed in whole or repaired as follows:
(a) Wrapper plates or backs heads shall be cut between two rows of staybolts or on a
line of staybolts where the thickness is approximately the same as the original construction. If welding is employed on a line of staybolts, the staybolts shall be fitted with
a welded collar as required by Figure 52.01–3 of this subchapter.
(b) The edges of wrapper plates riveted to tube sheets and back heads shall be removed
by cutting out the rivets.
(c) The edges of existing plates and new plates shall be beveled by chipping, flame cutting
or grinding so as to form a suitable groove whereby complete penetration of the weld
metal will be obtained. The edge preparation and preheat shall comply with the requirements of § 59.10–5(h).
(d) The edges of the new plate shall be buttwelded and the plate shall be riveted to
the flanges of the tube sheet and back heads and the staybolts renewed.
(e) Sections of wrapper plates of combustion chambers outside of stayed areas may be
repaired by welding provided the welded joints are stress-relieved by means of controlled
heat and the joints are nondestructively tested.
