ASTM WK47160

    Revision of E570 - 09 Standard Practice for Flux Leakage Examination of Ferromagnetic Steel Tubular Products

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E570 - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: E07.07 | Committee E07 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    This document was reviewed as part of the five year reapproval process and found to need several minor wording changes. This includes the allowable notch widths for the reference standards. The description of the reference standard materials was broadened to allow for materials with similar electromagnetic properties so that each material grade does not necessarily need a separate standard.
