As a customer I would not accept it.

Historical Version s astm a435 view previous versions of standard. The equipment shall be of the pulse-echo straight beam type.

Standard Specification for Straight-Beam Ultrasonic Examination of Steel Plates

Again, I think it is great that you take this much effort into something like this for your company, as well as the cutomer. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents, therefore, each system must be used independently of the other.


The test shall be done by astm a435 of the following methods: As you described ” Plate is Astm a435 as per referece standard”.
