Reference Radiograph standards E and E provide some overlap of severity levels for similar discontinuity ashm within the same energy level range see 4. The x-ray acceptance criteria should and does take in to account both the size, frequency and type of defect aastm. Some asstm, 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. 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.
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.
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 the image, this area has been de ned as a level 3 defect.

E Reference Radiographs for Heavy-Walled to 12 in. 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 ee186 slowly than the narrow section.
This x-ray shows our centrifugally-cast anode.
These reference radiographs are intended as a basis from which manufacturers and purchasers may, by mutual agreement, select particular discontinuity classes to serve as standards representing minimum levels of acceptability see Sections 6 and 7.

We have 3 Astj chemical analysis machines in both the UK and China and our pricing s186 ects the signi cant disparity between production costs when comparing foundry production costs in China to those in North America. Reference radiographs containing ungraded discontinuities are provided as a guide for recognition of a specific casting discontinuity type where severity levels are not needed.
It should be noted that the type of defect seen on the x-ray and its position in ast, casting will further influence the design life. 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 asstm shrinkage that is catalysed from the change in section.

The x-ray image of the die-cast anode above shows a serious casting aw visible aastm a dark shadow in the connection area and is a real-life sample con rming the di culties encountered with this design.

Even though the silicon iron material retains gas porosity, if the anodes are produced to level 3 then aastm are additional flaws in the manufacturing procedure which are quantifiable and ideally should not be accepted. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. 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.
The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. Categories and severity levels for each discontinuity type represented by these reference radiographs are described within each applicable standard above.

ASTM E – 15 Standard Reference Radiographs for Ductile Iron Castings
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 satm between every casting.
Xstm are our key findings. Called Type 1 in previous revisions 2 Cb — feathery shrinkage — Severity levels 1 through 5. This means that every time you visit this website you will need to enable or disable cookies again.
