    WK30877

    1. Scope

    This Standard establishes the minimum requirements for adequate calibration of Liquid Penetrant and Magnetic Particle Testing equipment.

    The standard is needed because pertinent calibration issues are ignored and abused by the general industry. Standardization of the calibration of these devices is long overdue. Users of the document would be prime manufacturers, the US government, general manufacturing, and the in-service industry.


    Keywords

    Calibration, NDT, radiometer, oven, black light meter, white light meter, temperature calibration, field indicator, gaussmeter, timer, ammeter, magnetometer, pressure gage, temperature gage, magnetic yoke.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
