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. Metal Removal Marks Thermal Dressing. Expansion Discontinuities – slightly raised surface irregularities.

The use of the comparators is superior to methods based on photographs which can qstm uncertainties concerning interpretation, particularly with regards o the depth of surface irregularities. This practice covers the standard acceptance criteria for the determination of surface texture, surface roughness, and surface discontinuities of steel castings by visual examination. Non-Metallic Inclusions – Non-metallic material trapped on the surface of castings. A082 Version s – view previous versions of standard.


Metal Removal Marks Welds – indications of welds fully or partially removed by thermal or mechanical dressing. Metal Removal Marks Mechanical Dressing.

Inserts – indications of chaplets sand core supports or internal chills. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

It should assist in avoiding misunderstanding arising atm imprecise descriptions at the order stage and should also help in defining a surface that is amendable to a particular techniques of non-destructive testing. Four levels of acceptance standards are provided. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

Surface Texture – the natural surface of the casting after shot blasting. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract asym accurate, complete or up to date.

Level A for surface texture, Level B for nonmetallic inclusions, Level C for gas porosity, Level D for solidification discontinuities, Level E for sand expansion discontinuities, Level F for metal inserts, Astmm G for thermally cut surfaces, Level H for mechanically prepared surfaces, and Level J for welded surfaces.


Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Gas Porosity – Indications of gas t the casing surface. The comparator w802 also be used as the standard of quality inspection. Fusion Discontinuities – surface irregularities giving a wrinkled appearance.

Visual Inspection Acceptance Criteria.

The casting designer and purchasers can denote the level one to four on the drawings as the requirements a8802 surface quality, then the founder, Dandong Foundry, will check the photos, and learn about the requirements.

Metal Removal Marks Mechanical Dressing – surface remaining after using a mechanical means of dressing a asym surface or a previously thermally dressed surface. The object of this standard is to facilitate cooperation between founder and casting purchaser in determining the surface conditions, and quality level required.
