Magnetic Particle

Magnetic particle inspection is used for locating discontinuities on the surface and slightly subsurface in ferromagnetic objects. It is able to be used on a wide variety of materials, as well as various sizes and shapes. Magnetic particle inspection is very economical and provides instantaneous results. It is capable of making very small linear discontinuities visible.

Defects that can be found with magnetic particle inspection include:

  • Fatigue Cracks
  • Grinding Cracks
  • Heat Treat Cracks
  • Stress Corrosion Cracks
  • Laps
  • Seams
  • Stringers
  • Star Cracks
  • Lack of Fusion
  • Cold Shuts

Our certified technicians are able to perform both fluorescent and visible magnetic particle inspection methods. We are able to accommodate parts of any length and those weighing up to 5,000 pounds in our lab. In the field, we are able to inspect parts of unlimited weight and size.
