In the October 2010 issue of the NDT Technician published by the ASNT (American Society of Nondestructive Testing), we have found a very interesting paper (1) that you may read.

It explains an MT technique using only one of the two legs of an AC hand-held electromagnet and which then produces a radial magnetic field.

It seems that, quite often, we “feel” what the topics of papers published in technical journals will be.

For instance, we wrote a draft, titled “Quality of some calibration services” in May 2010, about … well … the quality of the calibration/verification of UV-A irradiance meters, luxmeters and magnetic field meters.

You bet the man was surprised: such a question by an American friend! Americans have not yet accepted the International System even nowadays!

The last PRI-NADCAP newsletter highlights some parameters of a PT line that are of the utmost importance. The topic is about the shape of the water flow, and water pressure is also mentioned. In some way, this newsletter substantiates our last month’s paper titled: “The water pressure: a myth?”
