Inspection, Ultrasonic Product Over 0.5 Inch (12.7 mm) Thick
This specification covers procedures for ultrasonic inspection, by pulse-echo procedures, of flat, rectangular, round, cylindrical, and contoured products having a thickness or cross-sectional dimension greater than 0.5 inch (12.7 mm), using either contact or immersion methods, and using the longitudinal-wave or shear-wave modes or combinations of the two, as necessary. This specification may apply to testing finished machined parts provided the parts can meet the basic testability requirements, such as size, contour, metallurgical structure, and thickness.
AMS2630E is the result of a Five-Year Review and update of the specification. The revision updates inspection methodology to be consistent with AMS2631 including changes to criteria (1.3), clarifing instrument requirements (3.2, 22.214.171.124), revising agreement requirements (3.2.2), updating requirements for curved surfaces (3.4.2), updating reference standards and procedure (126.96.36.199), updating and including calculations for electronic gating (188.8.131.52), adding an alternative FBH methodology (4.1.1) and the associated FBH conversion (Table 4), and updating Figure 5 for clarity.
