Very low sulfur content steels will produce too faint an image to be useful for macrostructural evaluations. The density of the print image should not be used to assess the sulfur content of a steel.

It has been thought that wall thinning on the secondary side piping in nu-clear power plants xstm mostly caused by Flow-Accelerated Corrosion FAC.
The sulfur print complements macroetch methods by providing an additional procedure for evaluating the homogeneity of a steel product. However, after a certain period of time, the mass loss rate of A Aastm became greater than that of A B. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
The magnetite is formed by controlling the ashm chemistry and the temperature of fluid inside the facility. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
ASTM E – 08 Standard Practice for Preparing Sulfur Prints for Macrostructural Evaluation
The experimental facility allows examining liquid droplet impingement asmt in the same conditions as the secondary side piping in nuclear power plants by generating the magnetite on the surface of the test materials.
No other units of measurement are included in this standard. However, the materials of pipes carrying two-phase flow should be asgm considering their susceptibility to LDIE. This paper presents a comparison of the mass loss rate of the tested materials between carbon steel A B and low alloy steel A P22 resulting from degradation effect. In nuclear power plants, carbon steel piping having experienced wall thinning degradation is generally replaced with low-alloy steel piping.
Very faint images in the sulfur print can be made more visible by scanning the sulfur print into a PC, asttm using a photo editor to increase the color saturation. The layer of magnetite on the surface of A is thicker than that of A P22, due to the different amount of chrome content.
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. It is presumed that the results are caused by the different yield strengths of the test materials and the different degrees of buffer action of the magnetite deposited on their surfaces. Steels with compositions that produce predominantly titanium or chromium sulfides will not produce useful images.
An experimental facility was set up to w1180 a prediction model for clarifying multiple degradation mechanisms that occur together. Selection of appropriate printing practices including selection of type of emulsion coated media, acid type and strength, will yield satisfactory prints.
Under carefully controlled conditions, it is possible to compare print image intensities if the images are formed only by manganese sulfides. In the initial stage of the experiments, the mass loss rate of A B was greater ast, that of A P For specific precautionary statements, see Section 9. Scientific Research An Academic Publisher.
