Magnetic particle testing is a very forgiving test method

July 2013

One of our readers, an auditor for a company that manufactures mechanical components, lets us know he has audited a sub-contractor who uses MT to check its fully machined and finished parts after the ASTM E709 and DIN 54130 standards and after the acceptance criteria supplied by the prime.
This inspection is performed on magnetic bench with a water-based fluorescent magnetic ink.

Ht and B figures

May 2013

Mr Leau, a French NDT technician, sent us a message:

First of all, thank you for all your articles on your Website, which are always very interesting.
I submit to you a "topic":
In many MT procedures (and standards) the suitable high and low values of the tangential magnetic field to perform the inspection are stated, for example, between 2,000 and 6,000 A/m. Some operators think this shall be followed blindly, and dare in no case exceed the high value (i.e. 6,000 A/m in the above quoted example.)
Be it an oversight or not in the standards, it seems that they mention no constraining high figures.

Relevant vs Significant
Non-relevant vs Non-significant

April 2013

Further to our Editorial(1) published in June 2011 on our Website, we are coming back to this question of vocabulary.
We have asked several experts, all knowledgeable in non-destructive testing (NDT) and in English language. Some are also fluent in French, or have French as their mother tongue.
Underneath, you may find the most interesting answers we have received.
Trust us … the situation is not that clear!!!
