Spot Radiography

Sir,
I want to know
1. What is spot radiography, acceptance criteria for it ?

2. What is ASTM A 516 material ?

3. What is the diff betn. SA 516 Gr. 70 & A 516 Gr.70 material ?

Can u please please send me answer for these?

Regards

Ajit

1. Spot radiography is an aid to quality control where the code does not require a weld to undergo full radiography (100%) . You can make reference to ASME VIII Div 1 UW-11. Acceptance criteria is UW-52
2. ASTM A 516 material is Carbon Steel Pressure Vessel Plates for Moderate and Lower Temperature Service.
3. There is no difference between SA516 Gr 70 and A516 Gr 70 materials. The difference is only in the Grades. ie Gr 65 is different from Gr 70

Hi Ajit,

To add to Bob's reply, A516 is the ASTM Specification while SA516 is the ASME equivalent.

Mechanical Properties Gr 70:
Tensile: 70 to 90 ksi
Yield: 38 ksi min
Elongation: 17% min in 8” 21% min in 2”

The major difference in Spot vs. 100% RT, other than the coverage, is that in evaluating the image, porosity is not considered. ASME VIII QW-52 vs. QW-51

In spot radiography what is the minimum percentage of weld portion to be radiographed.

Any mandatory requirement for selection of Spot

Spot" shall have a minimum length of 6 inches. One "spot" shall be examined for each 50 ft increment of weld or fraction

When a "spot" ... does not comply with the miniimum quality requirements ... two additional "spots" shall be radiographically examined in the same weld increment at locations away from the original "spot

Dear Ravinder

Thank you for your response reg Spot RT

Kindly advise as per which code or standard that every 50' length of weld 6" length RT considered as Spot RT.

I agree with Roger that porosity is not a factor, but it should be noted, and gross, wormhole or aligned porosity should be repaired per RAGAGEP, as it may be the result of a welding procedure issue.
