Simply put, magnetic particle inspection is a non-destructive test method that offers detection of surface, linear and near surface discontinuities in ferromagnetic test materials. Ferromagnetic material refers to material that can be magnetised. A linear indication is any indication that has a length dimension at least three times greater than its width.
There are many advantages to magnetic particle inspection, including the fact that it is a quick and simple method in principle as well as application. It is exceptionally sensitive to the detection of surface and slightly sub-surface linear indications, and indications also appear on the actual test part.
The test method process may often work through contaminant layers and coating thickness, and the method lends itself to high volume production and automation inspection. Another benefit of this type of inspection is the fact that it is far less expensive than other more sophisticated means of quality assurance.
