A90 Standard Test Method for Weight of Coating on Iron and Steel Articles with Zinc or Zinc- Alloy Coatings.
This standard applies to control valves having bodies, bonnets, cover plates, and bottom flanges made of carbon steel, low alloy and high alloy (stainless) steel, nickel-base alloy, cast iron, and ductile iron.
Magnetic particle inspection (MPI) is a nondestructive testing (NDT) technique used to detect surface and subsurface defects in ferroelectric materials such as iron, nickel and a few steel alloys.
While low-alloy white-iron castings, which have an alloy content below 4%, develop hardness in the range of 350-550 HB, the high-alloy irons range in hardness from 450-800 HB.
