Magnetic particle inspection is an extremely sensitive non-destructive testing (NDT) method for use on ferrous materials. It can detect minute cracks open to the surface as well as some sub-surface discontinuities. Magnetic particle inspection is one of the most economical and fastest ways to ensure that ferrous materials are safe and ready for use in the field. In simplified terms, this type of non-destructive inspection is performed by creating a magnetic field around the material being tested and then applying a carrier fluid holding particles typically made up of iron oxide. Any defect in the surface or just under the surface of the subject material will distort the magnetic field surrounding it, causing the particles in the carrier fluid to be drawn to it. This attraction is easily detected and identified. If there are no flaws in the material, the particles within the magnetic field will remain evenly distributed throughout. The productivity and sensitivity of this method makes magnetic particle inspection a standard requirement in the inspection industry.
