THE Applus+ SOLUTION
Applus+ are able to deliver bespoke ferrite-testing services to any industry, at any stage of manufacture, anywhere in the world. Clients can expect the highest degree of quality control, through strict internal competency testing and technical procedures.
Applus+ is able to deliver results by the placement of a single probe on the surface of the specimen, whereby the reading is displayed automatically and stored in the instrument. For easy ferrite-content measurements along a weld seam, our testing instruments offer continuous measurement-capture functions. When scanning the weld seam, the continuous readings are captured and stored. This provides a ferrite-content profile along the weld seam. Ferrite-content measurements can be taken regardless of the properties of the substrate material and starting at a plating thickness of 3mm. Corrective calibrations to customer-specific calibration standards or correction factors can be used to take into account influences of the specimen shape, plating and substrate thicknesses.
Results are generally available instantly and, depending on the client’s requirements, can be provided as spot or profile readings and as percentages or as ferrite numbers.
