This specification covers a corrosion and heat-resistant nickel alloy in the form of welded and drawn tubing 0.125 inch (3.18 mm) and over in nominal OD and 0.015 inch (0.38 mm) and over in nominal wall thickness (see 8.6).
This Information Report describes eddy current testing, flux leakage testing, ultrasonic testing, and magnetic particle testing of steel tubing. The purpose of these testing methods is to expose flaws in the tube material or weld zone, such as discontinuities, seams, cracks, holes, voids, and other imperfections characteristic to the specific construction of the tubing. When agreed upon between the producer and purchaser, nondestructive testing is used in lieu of destructive hydrostatic pressure proof testing. Aircraft and Aerospace applications were not considered during the preparation of this document.
This specification covers a nitriding grade of premium aircraft-quality, low-alloy steel in the form of bars, forgings, mechanical tubing, and forging stock. AMS6496 and AMS6497 cover UNS K23280 with other quality levels.
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of rolled or forged rings up to 6 inches (152 mm) inclusive, in nominal thickness at the time of heat treatment, and having an OD to wall thickness ratio of 10 or greater (see 8.6).
This specification, in conjunction with the general requirements for peening media covered in AMS2431, establishes the requirements for the procurement of conditioned carbon steel cut wire shot with a hardness of 55 to 62 HRC.
