i need help finding specs, preferable asme, wich deals with visual inspection of plate (stainless). i have a problem with pitting and need to write up a inspection proceedure. thanks for the help in advance.
Re: piiting on plate Now it depends on what exactlty the plate is to be used for but generally most the ASME specs refer to ASME V section 9. This section gives details for the needed level of quality for inspection circumstances such as access and illumination. The proper application of optical devices is also described.
If the plate is in a nuclear plant a diffent section is required.
Also be aware the certification requirments vary for VT inspection between different sections of the ASME code.
