Aetm methods include five generally accepted systems of examination. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not w45 as part of the standard. Materials with very low inclusion contents may be more accurately rated by automatic image analysis, which permits more precise microscopic ratings.

The microscopic methods are not intended for assessing the content of exogenous inclusions those from entrapped slag or refractories. 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. Asgm degree of sampling must be adequate for the lot size and its specific characteristics. In these microscopic methods, inclusions are assigned to a category based on similarities in morphology, and not necessarily on their chemical identity.

Values in parentheses are conversions and are approximate. As stated in 1. 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. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Active view current version of standard. 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.

Metallographic techniques that allow simple differentiation between morphologically similar inclusions are e4 discussed.

Macroscopic methods include macroetch, fracture, step-down, and magnetic particle tests. Microscopic methods include five generally accepted systems of examination.

Macroscopic methods include macroetch, fracture, step-down, and magnetic particle tests. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

This practice, however, does not address the satm 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.

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. In these microscopic methods, inclusions are assigned to a category based on similarities in morphology, and not necessarily on their chemical identity.

Macroscopic methods are not suitable for detecting inclusions smaller than about 0. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. These inclusions are characterized by morphological type, that is, by size, shape, concentration, and distribution, but not specifically by composition.

Values in parentheses are conversions and are approximate. 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.

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. 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. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

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. 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.

Metallographic techniques that allow simple differentiation between morphologically similar inclusions are briefly discussed. Qualification criteria for assessing the data developed by these methods can be found in ASTM product standards or may be described by purchaser-producer agreements. 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.

When such steels are evaluated, the test report should describe the nature of the inclusions rated according to each inclusion category A, B, C, D. Only those inclusions present at the test surface can be detected.
