sets on peaks of the profile while a conicalshaped point projects into the valleys Digital models store and upload data for analysis Replica Tape Used in conjunction with a spring-loaded micrometer (analog or

digital) Compressible foam attached to 2 mils of polyester film (Mylar) Digital version of micrometer can upload data (USB) Replica Tape Using HT Replica Tape Obtain measurement with X-Coarse replica tape If reading is 0.8-1.5 mils (red zone), record the measurement using Coarse tape

If reading is 2.6-4.5 mils (blue zone), record the measurement using X-Coarse tape If reading is between 1.5-2.5 mils using X-Coarse, obtain a second reading (same location) with the Coarse tape If the reading with the Coarse tape is also within 1.5-2.5 mils inclusive, average the two values Portable Stylus Instruments (ASTM D7127) Retractable arm with diamond point stylus Arm is automatically retracted Rt: The distance between the highest peak

and the lowest valley within any given evaluation length Rmax: The greatest distance between the highest peak and lowest valley for any of the five sampling lengths that comprise an evaluation length Pc: The number of peak/valley pairs, per unit of evaluation length, extending outside a deadband centered around the mean line over the sampling length Frequency of Surface Profile

Measurements No. of readings indicated in ASTM standards No. of locations not indicated in ASTM standards No. of locations may be indicated by the project specification Proposed SSPC Standard provides no. of locations to characterize the surface Primary purpose of this webinar Number of Readings (to determine location average) Based on Test Method (unless otherwise specified) ASTM D4417

Sufficient number of readings for Method A (visual comparator) 10 readings per location for Method B (depth micrometer) 3 readings per location for Method C (replica tape) ASTM D7127 (portable stylus instrument) 5 traces per location Number of Locations (to characterize the surface) Minimum of three 6 x 6 (15cm x 15cm) locations Per surface preparation apparatus

Per work shift or 12-hour period (whichever is shorter) Optional method (Non-mandatory Appendix B) Based on changes in process between acceptance of jobsite standard & completion of production surface preparation Surface Preparation Apparatus Individual Blast Pot (multiple nozzles) [1] Individual abrasive recycling/blast cleaning units (multiple pots) [2] Individual centrifugal units (stationary or

mobile) [3] Individual power tool [4] 1 2 3 4 Reporting Report: Range of Location Averages (lowest

location average & highest location average) Surface Profile Measurement (per apparatus) Example (based on replica tape): Location 1: 4.5, 4.8, 4.1 mils; (4.5) Location 2: 4.0, 5.0, 3.8 mils; (4.3) Location 3: 3.5, 4.1, 4.8 mils; (4.1) Range: 4.1-4.5 mils; Average 4.3 mils Conformance to the Specified Surface Profile Range The average of the location averages must

fall within the specified surface profile range Location averages and average surface profile measurements outside of the specified range are not acceptable The magnitude of the non-conforming surface profile measurement areas must be determined, marked and recorded OK OK End of Prepared Area

OK Nonconforming Location 6 x 6 (15cm x 15cm) areas Nonconforming Location OK

OK OK Chalk line demarcating nonconforming area OK Appendix A: Calibration & Verification of Accuracy (shop/field) Calibration of instruments (applies to ASTM D4417 methods B&C; ASTM D7127) Calibration by manufacturer or approved laboratory only

Recalibration per manufacturers recommended interval (typically annual) Obtain a dated Certificate of Traceability Appendix A: Calibration & Verification of Accuracy (shop/field) ASTM D4417 Method A (visual comparator): visual for damage Microscopic examination in a laboratory to confirm depth of valley relative

to corresponding peak (if necessary) Appendix A: Calibration & Verification of Accuracy (shop/field) ASTM D4417 Method B (depth micrometer) Zero set (float glass plate) beginning & end of shift Verify accuracy using shim with cut-out/hole on float glass plate Verify cone tip condition

If surface profile conforms,

document process control items Appendix B: Determining Compliance Based on Process Control Procedure A change in process during production requires remeasurement Denote time of the change & location of surfaces prepared prior to the change Obtain two measurements at random locations One in an area prepared prior to the change in process One in an area prepared after the change in process Document: Locations of tests; test method(s); test results; conformance to specification The magnitude of the non-conforming surface profile

of blast media Appendix C: Additional Considerations Measuring surface profile exposed by waterjetting units Profile may vary considerably. Additional measurement locations may be required Measuring surfaces prepared using power tools (SSPC-SP11; SP15) Consider productive life of cleaning media; Additional measurement locations may be required Use ASTM D4417, Method B only
