some doubt on ISO 17640-2017
zoom image



hi, everyone! I have some doubt on the ISO17640. for Annex A, butt joint in plates and pipes, for example, if the thickness is 10mm, using the testing level A, for longitudinal discontinuities inspection, how could we get the total numbers of scanning is 2? why is it not 1?

from A or B side, scanning have to be performed from both side of the weld seam.

hi, everyone! According to my interpretation, (A or B) means that "we can detect" longitudinal discontinuities from A or B, but when you indicate 2 scans in the table, it means that "must be inspected" from both sides of the weld (A and B).

Hello,

Two (2) scans because it takes two sides of the weld, right and left referenced to the longitudinal axis. Some defects like 401 are prone to be detected only by one side of the parent material.
In general, in my opinion it is good to ensure the right ang le or closest as possible to it to the ut beam and the welding surface, where most probably are important flaws like 401-402. It has been done by the direct beam, one knot and two knots.
