Braze Joints

Hi, I am trying to figure out what creates a standard for braze joints and braze joint inspection. I know about ultrasonic cscan and Quasar Process Compensated Resonant Inspection. Though highly doubtful I am wondering if there is any visual inspections you can do to determine a good or bad braze joint. I am also wondering if there is an industry standard to do a destructive inspection,like how many parts to pull from a lot to determine a lot pass/fail.

Re: Braze Joints
Oh yeah just to you clarify. I am looking for general visual inspection techniques. I know it is heavily part specific if there are any techniques. I am looking for examples like percentage of braze alloy above joint.

One of the commonly used method of confirming internal braze coverage using a visual method is to control which surface the braze is introduced and perform the inspection on tne opposite surface. this becomes a verification of braze flow. For NDT methods UT and X-Ray are your primary methods for confirming braze flow. In order to comply with a requirement that requires a specific percentage of braze coverage one of these methods will be needed.
