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.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

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.

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

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

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

ASTM E45 Standard Test Methods for Determining the Inclusion Content

Metallographic techniques that allow simple differentiation between morphologically similar inclusions are briefly discussed. While a minimum level of deformation is not specified, the test methods are not suitable for use on cast structures or on lightly worked structures.

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.

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

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. Microscopic methods include five generally accepted systems of examination. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. In these microscopic methods, inclusions are assigned to a category based on similarities in morphology, and not necessarily on their chemical identity. When such steels are evaluated, the test report should e5 the nature of the inclusions rated according to each inclusion category A, B, C, D.

The degree of sampling must be adequate for e54 lot size and its specific characteristics. This practice, however, does not address the measurement of such parameters.

As stated in 1. Macroscopic methods include macroetch, fracture, step-down, and magnetic particle tests.

Materials with very low inclusion contents may be more accurately rated by automatic image analysis, which permits more precise microscopic ratings. The microscopic methods are not intended for assessing the content of exogenous inclusions those from entrapped slag or refractories. ast,
