Steel Cleanliness, Aircraft Quality Martensitic Corrosion-Resistant Steels Magnetic Particle Inspection Procedure
|Publication Date:||1 August 2010|
This specification covers steel cleanliness requirements in inch/pound units for aircraft-quality, ferro-magnetic, hardenable, corrosion-resistant steels as determined by magnetic particle inspection methods. This specification contains sampling, specimen preparation, and inspection procedures and cleanliness rating criteria (See 8.2).
The metric version, MAM2303, has been cancelled. The SI units have been included in this specification, but the inchpound units are primary (See 8.5).
This procedure has been used typically for the cleanliness evaluation of blooms, billets, tube rounds, stock for forging or flash welded rings, slabs, bars, sheet, strip, plate, tubing, and extrusions used in fabricating parts subject to magnetic particle inspection, but may be used for qualification of a heat, melt, or lot of steel.
