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. Microscopic methods include ast, generally accepted systems of examination. 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.

The microscopic methods are not intended for assessing the content of exogenous inclusions those from entrapped slag or refractories.

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 asym are briefly discussed.

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. Macroscopic methods include macroetch, fracture, step-down, and magnetic particle tests. 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.

Materials with very low inclusion contents may be more accurately rated by automatic image analysis, which permits more precise microscopic ratings.

ASTM E45 2011 Standard Test Methods for Determining the Inclusion Content of Steel

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. Macroscopic asmt are not suitable for detecting inclusions smaller than about 0.

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. 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.

As stated in 1. While a minimum level of deformation is not specified, the test methods are not suitable atm use on cast structures or on lightly worked structures. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety ashm health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

These inclusions are characterized by morphological type, that is, by size, shape, concentration, and distribution, but not specifically by composition. 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.

Macroscopic methods include macroetch, fracture, step-down, and magnetic particle tests.

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

This practice, however, does not address the measurement of such parameters. Although compositions are not identified, Microscopic methods place inclusions into one of several composition-related categories sulfides, atm, and silicates—the last as a type of oxide. 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.

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 ee45 the microanalytical results to determine if an inclusion is indigenous or exogenous.

The degree of sampling must be adequate for the lot size and its specific aetm. Only those inclusions present at the test surface can be detected.
