ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA
FOR RADIOGRAPHIC TESTING : TABLE 341.3.1 pg. no. 84
For MAGNETIC PARTICLE TESTING : para 344.3.2 pg. no .89
For ULTRASONIC TESTING : para 344.6.2 PG. NO. 90

Acceptance Criteria.
Acceptance criteria shall be as described in (a) or (b).
(a) A linear-type discontinuity is unacceptable if the amplitude of the indication exceeds
the reference level and its length exceeds.

(1) 6 mm (1∕4 in.) for Tw 19mm (3∕4 in.)


(2) Tw/3 for 19 mm (3∕4 in.) <Tw 57mm (21∕4 in.)
(3) 19 mm (3∕4 in.) for Tw > 57mm (21∕4 in.)
(b) The fracture-mechanics-based ultrasonic examination acceptance criteria in
Appendix R may be used if all requirements of Appendix R are met.

For LIQUID PENETRANT TESTING : para 344.4.2 PG. NO. 89

An indication of an imperfection may be larger than the imperfection that


causes it; however, the size of the indication is the basis for acceptance
evaluation.
Only indications that have any dimension greater than 1.5 mm (1∕16in.) shall be
considered relevant.
(a) Indications

(1) A linear indication is one having a length greater than three times its width.

(2) A rounded indication is one of circular or elliptical shape with a length equal
to or less than three times its width.

(b) Examination.
All surfaces to be examined shall be free of
(1) Relevant linear indications
(2) Relevant rounded indications >5.0 mm (3∕16 in.)
(3) Four or more relevant rounded indications in a line separated by 1.5 mm (1∕16
in.) or less, edge to edge
