Steel Cleanliness, Aircraft Quality Magnetic Particle Inspection Procedure
|Publication Date:||1 May 2020|
This specification covers steel cleanliness requirements in inch/pound units for aircraft-quality ferro-magnetic steels, other than hardenable corrosion resistant steels (refer to AMS2303), by magnetic particle inspection methods. This specification contains sampling, specimen preparation, inspection procedures and cleanliness rating criteria (see 8.5).
he metric version, MAM2301, has been cancelled. The SI units have been included in this specification, but the inch/pound 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.
