Magnetic Testing is used to detect surface and slightly subsurface flaws and discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials such as carbon steel.
Principal uses for Magnetic Testing include the final receiving and in process inspections of welding, castings and forgings.
Components manufactured for the power generation, oil and gas, structural steel fabrication, pressure vessels and tanks as well as the automotive, rail or aircraft industry are often inspected utilizing Magnetic Particle testing for quality control purposes.
Testing during maintenance or overhaul of industrial machinery while shutdown is also often performed. Items typically inspected as part of a shut down or as part of a preventative maintenance program may include components such as lifting devices, hooks, elevating platforms, rotating equipment.
We can perform the following Magnetic Particle Inspections:
Magnetic Particle weld inspections during manufacturing
Magnetic Particle Inspections on critical parts used as part of a preventative maintenance program
Magnetic Particle Inspections as part of a Pipeline Integrity program
Magnetic Particle safety inspections
Portable magnetic particle inspection utilizing portable AC or DC yokes for field work or onsite for the inspection of welds, castings, forgings
Fixed wet bench fluorescent magnetic particle inspections of large volumes of manufactured parts utilized in the automotive or aerospace industry
