Magnetic Particle Testing (MT) puts a magnetic field into the inspected material revealing discontinuities.  We certify our technicians in accordance with American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) requirements. Our personnel are qualified to ASNT-TC-1A.  

 Advantages of Magnetic Particle Testing
 

  • Rapid Flaw Detection: Ideal for quickly locating surface and sub-surface flaws and discontinuities in ferromagnetic material like Iron, Nickel, Cobalt, and related alloys.
  • Highly Adaptable: Ideal for inspection of irregular parts. 
  • As Forged or As Welded:  Less preparation of inspected material as sullied surface area is less important than other NDT methods.  Inspection of material in "as is" condition saving cost of cleaning and preparation.
  • Economical: Less expensive application than other NDT methods. 
  • Highly portable:  magnetic particle testing can be performed almost anywhere in the field or shop.
