Magnetic Particle Inspection

Non-destructive Magnetic Particle Inspection

Magnetic particle inspection is a nondestructive testing process for detecting surface and slightly subsurface imperfections in ferrous materials.

Magnetic particle inspection is performed by inputting a magnetic field into the test material. If any defects near the surface are present, our lab technicians will notice a leakage field. The flux particles will build up in the areas of leakage and form an area of indication, which is evaluated by our technicians to determine any further action. As an American company built on the American values of integrity, honesty and trust, each and every product forged or tested at Solmet Technologies is 100% traceable.

100% traceable. We test materials up to 48" in length and up to 500 lbs.

At Solmet, we test magnetic materials up to 48 inches in length and up to 500 pounds in our two full wave DC mag machines. These machines use the wet, continuous method described in ASTM E1444. Solmet also offers magnetic inspections in the field using either AC or DC contact probes.
