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 inclusions are briefly discussed.

Qualification astmm for assessing the data developed by these methods can be found in ASTM product standards or may be described by purchaser-producer agreements.

Materials with very low inclusion contents may be more accurately rated by automatic image analysis, which permits more precise microscopic ratings. Macroscopic methods include macroetch, fracture, step-down, and magnetic particle tests. 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. This practice, however, does not address the measurement of such parameters.

Only those inclusions present at the test surface can be detected. Microscopic methods include five generally accepted systems of examination. As stated in 1.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Metallographic techniques that allow simple differentiation between morphologically similar inclusions are briefly discussed.

Although compositions are not identified, Microscopic methods place inclusions into one of several composition-related categories sulfides, oxides, and atsm last as a type of oxide. 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.

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 e445 fields containing these highest severity ratings are tabulated.

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

When such steels are evaluated, the test report should describe the astj of the inclusions rated according to each inclusion category A, B, C, D. In these microscopic methods, inclusions are assigned to a category based on similarities in morphology, and not necessarily on their chemical identity.

While a minimum level of deformation is not specified, the test methods are not suitable for use on aastm structures or on lightly worked structures. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability satm regulatory limitations prior to use.

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