Inclusions are measured and rated quickly and accurately. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Accurate and fast measurements of inclusion types A, B, C and D. Macroscopic methods include macroetch, fracture, step-down, and magnetic mehhod tests.
Values in parentheses are conversions and are approximate. This practice, however, does not address the measurement of such parameters. By agreements between producer and purchaser, these test methods may be modified to count only certain inclusion types and thicknesses, or only those inclusions above a certain severity level, or both.
Metallographic techniques that allow simple differentiation between morphologically similar zstm are briefly discussed.
Special Aircraft Quality Steel Cleanliness: The degree of sampling must be adequate for the lot size and its specific characteristics. Results are immediately displayed. Easy to set controls for detecting both sulfide and oxide type inclusions. However, experience and knowledge of the casting process and production materials, such as deoxidation, desulfurization, and inclusion shape control additives as well as refractory and furnace liner compositions must be employed with the microanalytical results to determine if an inclusion is indigenous or exogenous.
Both Method A and Method D reports can be produced. Inclusion Rating Testing There are a number of microscopic test methods that have been developed to determine the non-metallic inclusion content of wrought steel.
Although compositions are not identified, Microscopic methods place inclusions into one of several composition-related categories sulfides, oxides, and silicates—the last as a type of oxide. Materials with very low inclusion contents may be more accurately rated by automatic image analysis, which permits more precise microscopic ratings.
While a minimum level of deformation is not specified, the test methods are not suitable for use on cast structures or on lightly worked structures. Inclusion Rating Control Panel: As stated in 1. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. In case of a dispute whether an inclusion is indigenous or exogenous, microanalytical techniques such as energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy EDS may be used to aid in determining the nature of the inclusion.
These inclusions are characterized by morphological type, that is, by size, shape, concentration, and distribution, but not specifically by composition. We employ an automated image analysis system by Clemex Technologies, which provides standardized programming that conforms to many of the following specifications.
Historical Version s — view previous versions of standard. Convenient controls for correcting uneven illumination. Set reject levels for automatic logging of any rejectable inclusions. In some cases, alloys other than steels may be rated using one or more of these methods; the methods will be described in terms of their use on steels. Only those inclusions present at ast, test surface can be detected.
Rate live samples using camera on and off switch, or stored file images may be measured. For each method, inclusions are assigned to a category based on similarities in morphology, and not necessarily on their chemical identity.
Macroscopic methods are not suitable for methox inclusions smaller than about 0. Also, by agreement, qualitative practices may be used where only the highest severity ratings for each inclusion type and thickness are defined or the number of fields containing these highest severity ratings are tabulated. When axtm steels are evaluated, the test report should describe the nature of the inclusions rated according to each inclusion category A, B, C, D.
The control panel has early labeled buttons, not cryptic icon graphics. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced mmethod the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The microscopic methods are not intended for assessing the content of exogenous inclusions those from entrapped slag or refractories. These test methods deal only with recommended test methods and should not be construed as defining or establishing limits of acceptability for any grade of steel.
Number of fields rated and total area rated are constantly displayed. There are a number of microscopic test methods that have been developed to determine the non-metallic inclusion content of wrought steel. Microscopic methods include five generally accepted systems of examination. All measurements and statistical results are sent automatically to an Excel report. In these microscopic methods, inclusions are assigned to a category based on similarities in morphology, and not necessarily on their chemical identity.

While the methods are primarily intended for rating inclusions, constituents such as carbides, nitrides, carbonitrides, borides, and intermetallic phases may be rated using some of the microscopic methods. Results are immediately displayed. Microanalytical techniques such as energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy EDS may be used to aid in determining the nature of the inclusion.
