magnetic crack inspection

Dec 02, 2020 · Unbeknownst to the average person, this inspection method has been used to assure the quality of their automobile engine/drivetrain, motorboat/aircraft engine, rail car/track, firearm, or building structural weldment. Figure 1 illustrates multiple grinding crack indications on an aircraft gear using fluorescent magnetic particle testing.

The smaller the defect, the longer the penetrating time. Fine crack-like apertures require a longer penetrating time than defects such as pores. When the part to be inspected is made of a material susceptible to magnetism, it should be inspected by a magnetic particle inspection method if the equipment is available.

MT is also used in inspection applications for pipelines to check for stress corrosion cracking. Because defects can cause major integrity problems, companies around the world in many industries need magnetic particle testing and other NDT inspection methods to ensure compliance with quality control programs and standards.
