Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)
Detecting surface and subsurface flaws in ferromagnetic materials
Our magnetic particle testing service can be used for examining all types of components, from small items such as castings and forgings to larger in-service components. This method of non destructive testing can identify surface breaking and slight sub-surface defects such as cracking and pores, particularly in welds, which may cause reductions in durability and lifespan.
We are also able to offer MPI as part of our site services which include vibration analysis (VA) and crack detection (CD) of critical plant machinery. We often carry out VA/CD on impellers for glass furnaces, which assists the Plant’s preventative maintenance program.
