JD when you say “past inspection”. What kind of inspection? Must have been a walk by visual inspection. Please educate me here. I've never heard of anybody working to code that didn't have to properly care for low hydrogen welding rods.
But! I've been on numerous bridge projects welding falsework, and at the bottom of the blue prints there would be a note that reads something to the effect of, all welds must conform to AWS. Not a welding inspector on site, nor a rod oven. All the 7018 welding rod would be stored in a gang box, and it would never fail where a carpenter type would leave the lid to the gang box open during a rain storm, and I'd have to pour the water out of the can of 7018. So “past inspection” is a very broad statement. :lol:

The last bridge job I welded on was about 9-10 years ago. It was a repair job on a hit bridge on I-380. Every weld on the main beams where x-rayed before the state inspector would sign off on the job being complete. I used some 7018 rod on that job that where years old but had been stored inside.

My main point being that if you store the rods with low heat they will stay dry and last a long time.

JD that just goes to show you the degree of welding inspection in this country!
I think it was in 1998 I was sent to California to over see the welding of 1-mile of pipe tray in a refinery. This pipe tray was over water. The pipes in this tray carried product to and from the refinery to the shipping dock. The welders were all running wire, the erection crew welder was tacking with 7018. The refinery's welding inspector would keep track of the amount of time the 7018 was out of the rod oven!
