Non-destructive testing of welds - Magnetic particle testing (ISO 17638:2003)

Status: Withdrawn · Replaced by: SS-EN ISO 17638:2016

Scope
This International Standard specifies techniques for detection of surface imperfections in welds in ferromagnetic materials, including the heat affected zones, by means of magnetic particle testing. The techniques are suitable for most welding processes and joint configurations. Variations in the basic techniques that will provide a higher or lower test sensitivity, are described in Annex A.

This International Standard does not specify acceptance levels of the indications. Further information on acceptance levels for indications may be found in EN 1291 or in product or application standards.
