BS EN ISO 17636-1:2013 Non-destructive testing of welds. Radiographic testing. X- and gamma-ray techniques with film
BS EN ISO 17636-1 specifies techniques of radiographic examination of fusion welded joints in metallic materials using industrial radiographic film techniques.
This part of ISO 17636 applies to the joints of plates and pipes. Besides its conventional meaning, “pipe” as used in this International Standard covers other cylindrical bodies such as tubes, penstocks, boiler drums, and pressure vessels.
BS EN ISO 17636 does not specify acceptance levels for any of the indications found on the radiographs.
This International Standard specifies fundamental techniques of radiography with the object of enabling satisfactory and repeatable results to be obtained economically. The techniques are based on generally recognized practice and fundamental theory of the subject, inspection of fusion welded joints with industrial radiographic films.
BS EN ISO 17636-1 consists of the following parts, under the general title Non-destructive testing of welds:
Part 1: X- and gamma-ray techniques with film
Part 2: X- and gamma-ray techniques with digital detectors
The main changes are that:
The normative references have been updated;
The document has been divided into two parts — this part of ISO 17636 applies to radiographic testing with films;
X-ray devices up to 1 000 kV have been included;
The text has been editorially revised.
