ASME MT Examination Procedure

Can someone help me out here.
ASME V Article 7 states "Equipment of the same type" as a Nonessential Variable.
What is this referring to?
Thanks
Stan

Just a guess, but I would think that they are referring to types of equipment as yokes, pirtable MT units, etc.
To me, the brand of yoke used would not be an essential variable.

The intent is that you can perform circular magnetization using a horizontal bench or portable unit, while longitudinal magnetization may be completed using a yoke or other means determined by the procedure. This can be a necessary technique since some part configurations or sizes make the use of a coil or cable wrap impractical or do not allow it. Per ASME Section V Article 7: If the L/D Ratio is Less than 2 you shall not use a coil for longitudinal magnetization. This would require you the use an alternate method to perform the required inspection in accordance with this code such as a yoke.
