Magnetic Particle Inspection

This inspection method is used for detecting surface breaking defects in ferromagnetic materials. A magnetic field is created in the object, and surface defects then cause detectable magnetic leakages. Magnetic Particle Inspection is possible to detect defects up to a depth of 2 millimetres.

Besides portable test equipment, MME Group has various medium sized testing machines in the test laboratories for serial inspections. MME Group has used Magnetic Particle Inspection for the following applications:

  • shipping
  • construction
  • offshore
  • petrochemicals
  • aviation
  • industrial building
