Stainless steel (SS) is used in many industrial applications. While welding, the microstructures and the base material of the weld can change due to factors such as welding techniques, welding materials and the heat treatment. As a result, the weld can become brittle and sensitive to corrosion.

Quality control is therefore very important and in most cases Non-Destructive Testing methods are preferred. Ferritic and martensitic stainless steel is magnetizable. On the other hand austenitic stainless steel is not magnetizable. As a result, the quality of a weld can be determined by measuring the amount of ferrite (magnetizability). Ferrite measurements in stainless steel are often prescribed within the industry.

During this course you will learn to measure with a Feritscope. Knowledge of various types of stainless steel is desirable for participation in the Ferrite Measurements course. The Ferrite Measurements course consists of theoretical section with information about the background of the measurements in combination with the practical part of the course. The importance of the amount of ferrite in the material is discussed in detail in this one-day course.
