This is the same for level 4 and 5 as these flaws are increasing and the design life will be dramatically shortened.
ASTM E – 15 Standard Reference Radiographs for Ductile Iron Castings
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. 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.
Reference radiographs for other steel casting thicknesses may be found in Reference Ashm standards E and E Therefore, the adjunct reference radiographs remain valid for use with this standard regardless of the date of production s186 the revision level of the text standard.

Called Type 2 in previous revisions. The reference radiograph films are an adjunct to this document and must be purchased separately from ASTM International, if needed see 2. The x-ray image of the die-cast anode above shows a serious casting aw visible as a dark shadow in the connection area and is a real-life sample con rming the di culties encountered with this design.
We have anodes stocked in 2 locations in the USA, utilising purpose-made connectors that have been used in over 1 million anodes over the last 35 years see g 4 for TA2 and TA5A connectors. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

E Reference Radiographs for Heavy-Walled to in. Even though the silicon iron material retains gas porosity, if the anodes are produced to level 3 then there are additional flaws in the manufacturing procedure which are quantifiable and ideally should not be accepted.
Reference radiographs containing ungraded discontinuities are provided as a guide for recognition of a specific casting discontinuity type where severity levels are not needed. Although it is not economically viable to carry out an x-ray test on every anode, it is possible to demand that anodes supplied should pass an x-ray criteria level such as level 2 or better and that a percentage of anodes should be tested.
The basis of application for these reference radiographs requires a prior purchaser supplier agreement of radiographic examination attributes and classification criterion as described in Sections 45and 6 of this standard. E Reference Radiographs for Heavy-Walled 2 to in. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. Categories and severity levels for each discontinuity type represented by these reference radiographs are described in 1.
Additionally, the centrifugally cast anode utilises a straight-walled anode design that has no change in cross section or thickness at the centre of the anode and no complex arrangement of sand cores die cast anodes require up to 10 sand cores per anode which are susceptible to individual discrepancies between every casting.
Some companies, such as the ENI Group simply state their refusal to accept any anodes that are below level 3 and other companies have based their design life on their own experience and installations. The x-ray acceptance criteria should and does take in to account both the size, frequency and type of defect present.
This change in section is an inherent weakness in the design of a die-cast anode because the change in wall thickness means the thicker part of the casting cools more slowly than the narrow section.

Section 9 addresses purchaser supplier requisites where weld repairs to castings may be required. Called Type 1 in previous revisions. E Reference Radiographs for Heavy-Walled to 12 in. This slower cooling rate not only causes an inferior grain structure that is almost as poor as sand-cast anodes, but also necessitates an additional riser to help feed the shrinkage that is catalysed from the change in section.
ICS Number Code The best way to verify the integrity of the sub-surface structure of a casting is by x-ray. You can find out more about which cookies we are using or switch them off in settings. If you disable this cookie, we will not be able to save your preferences. Many companies are now specifying that anodes should be supplied that pass an x-ray test to level 1, level 2 or level 3 ASTM E This is a unique feature of the Centrifugal Casting method and is highly advantageous to the integrity of the casting.
In the top x-ray of the die-cast anode dark circular shadows depicting sub-surface shrinkage can be seen around the area of the pouring cup, i. In some applications, reference radiographs for steel castings may not be entirely applicable to ductile cast iron material dependent upon design or other usage criteria.
Following is a list of e86 categories, types and severity levels for the adjunct reference radiographs of this standard: Categories and severity levels for each discontinuity type represented by these reference radiographs are described within each applicable standard above. Reference radiographs qstm ungraded discontinuities are provided as a guide for recognition of a specific casting discontinuity type where severity levels may not be needed.
Therefore, the adjunct reference radiographs remain valid for use with this standard regardless of the date of production or the revision level of the text standard. We e18 no amendments or corrections for this standard.

Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. These are our key findings. Reference Radiograph standards E and E provide some overlap of severity levels for similar discontinuity categories within the same energy level range see 4.
