Four levels of acceptance standards are provided. 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.

Gas Porosity – Indications of gas t ast, casing surface. Surface Texture – the natural surface of the casting after shot blasting.

The comparator can also be used as the standard of quality inspection. Fusion Discontinuities – surface irregularities giving a wrinkled appearance. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.


Inserts – indications of chaplets sand core supports or internal chills. Expansion Discontinuities – slightly raised surface irregularities.

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. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

Metal Removal Marks Mechanical Dressing. Metal Removal Marks Mechanical Dressing – surface remaining after using a mechanical means of dressing a cast surface or a previously thermally dressed surface.

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, Level G for thermally cut surfaces, Level H atm mechanically prepared surfaces, and Level J for welded surfaces.

The use of the comparators is superior to methods based on photographs which can introduce uncertainties concerning interpretation, particularly with regards o the depth of surface irregularities. Visual Inspection Acceptance Criteria. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any a82 that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete asm up to date.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The object of this standard is to facilitate cooperation between founder and casting purchaser in determining the surface conditions, and quality level required. It should assist in avoiding misunderstanding arising from 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.

The casting designer and purchasers can denote z802 level one to four on the drawings as the requirements of surface quality, then the founder, Dandong Foundry, will check the photos, and learn about the requirements.

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