Magnetic Particle Examination
Ultratest is the leading specialist in magnetic particle inspections on a wide range of materials and products.
Magnetic particle testing (MT) inspection is a non destructive testing method used for defect detection.
It involves the process of detecting surface cracks or abnormalities in welded and ferrous materials like iron, steel and cast iron. The process involves applying a magnetic field into the part.
MT is fast and relatively easy to apply, and part surface preparation is not as critical as it is for some other NDT methods.
These characteristics make MT one of the most widely utilised non destructive testing methods.
Magnetic particle inspection is popularly known as magnafluxing.
