COURSE NAME:Magnetic Particle Testing Level I


This course can be scheduled at your convenience, to request this course please click here

Magnetic Particle Inspection involves the magnetisation of a component, followed by the application of ferromagnetic particles. The particles align along discontinuities in the surface, or shallow sub-surface discontinuities. This method is used to test welds, castings, and forgings for surface or subsurface defects, however it can only be used on ferromagnetic metals.


To provide the designers, welding engineers and ambitious welders, welding inspectors with the important know how they need to do a good job. The course fills many gaps of knowledge they like to make it over.
