Magnetic Particle inspection

What is NDT Magnetic Particle Inspection?

NDT Magnetic Particle Inspection is a non-destructive testing (NDT) technique used to detect surface and near-surface defects in ferromagnetic materials. It involves the use of a magnetic field and fine magnetic particles to identify cracks, discontinuities, or other defects that may not be visible to the naked eye. NDT Magnetic Particle Inspection is widely used in industries such as aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, and manufacturing to ensure the integrity and safety of critical components such as welds, castings, and forgings. It is a reliable and cost-effective method for identifying defects early in the inspection process, allowing for timely repairs or replacements to be made, and minimizing the risk of failure or downtime.

How does NDT Magnetic Particle Inspection work?

NDT Magnetic Particle Inspection works by creating a magnetic field in the material being inspected using a magnetic yoke, coil, or permanent magnet. If there is a defect or crack present, the magnetic field will cause magnetic flux leakage around the defect, resulting in the accumulation of fine magnetic particles at the defect location. This accumulation creates a visible indication, which can be observed using visible or fluorescent magnetic particles. The inspector can then evaluate the size, shape, and location of the indications to determine the severity and type of defect. NDT Magnetic Particle Inspection can be performed using either a dry or wet method, depending on the application and requirements. It is a sensitive and efficient method for detecting surface and near-surface defects in ferromagnetic materials, making it an essential tool in non-destructive testing for ensuring product quality and safety.
