The extensive Magnetic Particle testing service provides an extremely sensitive nondestructive testing method for use on ferrous materials, magnetic particle testing can detect minute cracks open to the surface, and some subsurface discontinuities. Magnetic Particle testing is performed by creating a magnetic field around the material being tested and then applying a carrier fluid which holds 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. Magnetic Particle testing can accurately reveal flaws that normal visual inspection cannot detect including cracks, seams, laps, and fusion discontinuities.
