When such steels are evaluated, the test report should describe the nature of the inclusions rated according to each inclusion category A, B, C, D.

Values in parentheses are conversions and are approximate. Macroscopic methods include macroetch, fracture, step-down, and magnetic particle tests. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate w45 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Metallographic techniques that allow simple differentiation between morphologically similar inclusions are briefly discussed. Macroscopic methods are not suitable for detecting inclusions smaller than about 0.

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

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. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This practice, however, does not address the measurement of such parameters. Materials with very low inclusion contents may be more accurately rated by automatic image analysis, which permits more precise microscopic ratings.

Macroscopic methods include macroetch, fracture, step-down, and magnetic particle tests. 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.

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.

ASTM E45 2011 Standard Test Methods for Determining the Inclusion Content of Steel

In these microscopic methods, inclusions are assigned to a category based on similarities in morphology, and not necessarily on their chemical identity. Microscopic methods include five generally accepted systems of examination. 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. 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.

ASTM E45 – 18a Standard Test Methods for Determining the Inclusion Content of Steel

However, experience and knowledge of the casting process and production materials, such as deoxidation, desulfurization, and inclusion shape control additives as well as sstm and furnace liner compositions must be employed with the microanalytical results to determine if an inclusion is indigenous or exogenous.

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.

While a minimum level of deformation is not specified, the test methods are not asstm for use on cast structures or on lightly worked structures.

ASTM E45 – 13 Standard Test Methods for Determining the Inclusion Content of Steel

The microscopic methods are not intended for assessing the content of exogenous inclusions those from entrapped slag or refractories. Microscopic methods include five generally accepted systems of examination. In these microscopic methods, inclusions are assigned to a category based on similarities in morphology, and not necessarily on their chemical identity. 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 ast severity ratings are tabulated.
