ME24CI : Participation to ILC Graphite classification of cast irons


Reference of the ILC ME24CI
References of test methods ISO 945-1  ISO TR 945-2
Frequency This ILC can be organised this year thanks to our preregistration procedure, which ensures an enough number of participants.
Main characteristics Form, distribution and size of graphite
Determination of the assigned values (“true values” for each characteristic) By statistical computation of the totality of the results with possible selection on competence criteria (accreditation, validation by a reference body, quantity of tests performed in the year), test to detect possible collusion, merging of results not obtained in reproductibility conditions, suppression of technically unvalid results.
Type of statistical computation For numerical results, the statistical computation will provide an assigned value with its attached uncertainty, values of standard deviations for repeatability and reproductibility, limits of alerts for bias and repeatability of the participant, indiviual values for uncertainty of results of participants.
Number of products submitted to tests 1
Number of samples per participation 6
Max number of operators per participation 10 (For this ILC, the type of test and sample size allow to provide results determined by several different operators and by several different methods)
Product submitted to tests Cast iron
Type of samples Discs
Approximate dimensions of samples Ø25x10 mm
Specific preparation to be performed by the participant  Preparation of surfaces of observation
Special notice for this ILC Results obtained by several methods may be provided (if the methods are not destructive)
