Reference Sensitivity for fusion plus weld test of T joints

What is the reference sensitivity required for 0° probe, when testing the fusion zone (and weld) of Full Penetration Joints from main member side?

Whether Lamination test sensitivity (2nd back wall echo at 80% etc) is acceptable or we need to make a DAC suind SDH? Consider the following codes:

Case 1: According to ABS Guide
Case 2: According to AWS D1.1
Case 3: According to API RP 2X

Rgds,

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
