Magnetic Particle Inspection

Magnetic Particle Inspection

This non-destructive test helps identify surface and subsurface imperfections in ferromagnetic metals to determine if they are sound enough for industrial applications.

Magnetic particle inspection is performed by inputting a magnetic field into the test material. If any defects near the surface or subsurface 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 and addressed by our technicians.

Solmet maintains fully certified technicians that offer in-house, on-site and field inspections.

Our Full Wave DC (FWDC) machines use the wet, continuous magnetic particle inspection method described in ASTM E1444 . We also offer testing in the field, using either AC or DC contact probes.
