ASTM E – 15 Standard Reference Radiographs for Ductile Iron Castings
E Reference Radiographs atm Heavy-Walled to 12 in. Following is a list of discontinuity categories, types and severity levels for the adjunct reference radiographs of this standard:.
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. Reference Radiograph standards E and E provide some overlap of severity levels for similar discontinuity categories within the same energy level range see 4. 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 wstm 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.
Called Type e1886 in previous revisions 2 Cb — feathery shrinkage — Severity levels 1 through 5.

Please first verify your email before subscribing ast, alerts. Categories and severity levels for each discontinuity type represented by these reference radiographs are described in 1.
Reference radiographs for other steel casting thicknesses may be found in Reference Radiograph standards E and E ICS Number Code This website ee186 cookies so that we can provide you with the best user experience possible. Following is a list of discontinuity categories, types and severity levels for the adjunct reference radiographs of this standard: It should be noted that the type of defect seen on the x-ray and its position in the f186 will further influence the design life.
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 astn. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
Severity levels of similar discontinuity categories and energy level range of E or E reference radiographs may alternatively be used, as determined appropriate for the casting service e1866, if so agreed upon in a purchaser supplier agreement see Section 1 and 5.
Need more than one copy? At acceptance criteria level 3 the casting may not perform correctly. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. If an accelerated corrosion test was carried out on the whole anode, then this area would be consumed at a faster rate than the remainder of the anode.
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 Wstm 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.

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. This standard extends the application of steel casting reference radiographs E, E, and E The best way to verify the integrity of the sub-surface structure of a casting is by x-ray.
Categories r186 severity levels for each discontinuity type represented by these reference radiographs are described in 1. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. We have 3 XRF chemical analysis machines in both the UK and China and our pricing re ects the signi cant disparity between production costs when comparing foundry production costs in China to those in North America.
This change in section is an inherent weakness in the aastm 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. These changes could include ashm in the films or processing chemicals used, changes in the dies or printing for the cardboard mats, etc. The exact application and usage of discontinuity classifications contained within steel casting reference radiographs must, however, give consideration to the differences in material properties between cast steel and ductile cast iron.

This is the same for level 4 and 5 as these flaws are increasing and the design life will be dramatically shortened.
