This is a text-only standard. This standard extends the application of steel casting reference radiographs E, E, and E The reference radiograph films. This standard is issued under the fixed designation E ; the number 1 These reference radiographs are under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee. E-7 on.

In the top x-ray of the die-cast anode dark circular shadows depicting xstm shrinkage can be seen around the area of the pouring cup, i. 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.
This includes cobalt or equivalent isotope radiation and from 2—MV up to 4—MV X-rays- Set of 28 plates nominal 5 by 8 in.
A direct comparison of Centrifugally Cast Tubular Anodes and Die Cast Tubular Anodes
These changes could xstm changes in the films or processing chemicals used, changes in the dies or printing for the cardboard mats, etc. This is a unique feature of the Centrifugal Casting method and is highly advantageous to the integrity of the casting.
The best way to verify the integrity of the sub-surface structure of a casting is by x-ray. Strictly Necessary Cookies Strictly Necessary Cookie should be enabled at all times so that we can save your preferences for cookie settings.
The reference radiograph films are an adjunct to this document and must be purchased separately from ASTM International, if needed see 2.

Called Type 1 in previous revisions 2 Cb — feathery shrinkage — Severity levels 1 through 5. 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 wstm 10 sand cores per anode which are susceptible to individual discrepancies between every casting.
The x-ray acceptance criteria should and does take in to account both the size, frequency and type of defect present. Called Type 3 sstm previous revisions.
ASTM E – 15 Standard Reference Radiographs for Ductile Iron Castings
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. 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.

These connections can be made in the factory or in the eld. 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 application, if so agreed upon in a purchaser supplier agreement see Section 1 and 5.
Where such modifications may be appropriate for the casting application, all such changes shall be specifically called-out in the purchaser supplier agreement or contractual document. At level 2 for the acceptance criteria, there are some specific asfm that will influence the overall life of the anode.
Each volume consists of three categories of graded discontinuities in increasing severity levels, and three categories of ungraded discontinuities.
Reference radiographs containing ungraded discontinuities are provided as a guide for recognition of a specific casting discontinuity type where severity levels may not be needed. The table below represents the most up to date summary for assessing the design life against the x-ray level acceptance criteria.
SI values are shown for information only. 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.
Following is a list of discontinuity categories, types and w186 levels for the adjunct reference radiographs of this standard:.
At acceptance criteria level 3 the casting may not perform correctly. 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.
Called Type 3 in previous revisions 1. Subscription pricing is determined by: 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.
Categories and severity levels for each discontinuity type represented by these reference radiographs are described in 1.
Categories and severity levels for each discontinuity type represented by these reference radiographs are described in 1. Already Subscribed to this document. Reference radiographs for other steel casting thicknesses may be found in Reference Radiograph standards E and E Each volume consists of three categories of graded discontinuities in increasing severity levels, and three categories of ungraded discontinuities.
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 Radiograph standards E and E provide some overlap of severity levels for similar discontinuity categories within the same energy level range see 4.
In the image, this area has been de ned as a level 3 defect. These are our key findings. This x-ray shows our centrifugally-cast anode. This includes cobalt or equivalent isotope radiation and from 2 — MV up to 4 — MV X rays- Set of 28 plates nominal 5 by 8 in.
