Magnetic Particle Inspection

Magnetic Particle Inspection

The magnetic particle examination method is used to detect cracks, laps, seams, inclusions, and other discontinuities on or near the surface of ferromagnetic materials. Magnetic particle examination may be applied to raw material, billets, finished and semi-finished materials, welds, and in-service parts. Magnetic particle examination is not applicable to non-ferromagnetic metals and alloys such as austenitic stainless steels.
