Magnaflux penetrants help safeguard against metal fatigue

Magnaflux will demonstrate its range of non-destructive testing (NDT) products, formulated to help engineers, technicians and mechanics know when parts have reached the end of their useful life. Amongst their many applications, its products are used to help develop safer parts for cars,  test the steel used in the tallest buildings and make sure that, even after hundreds of take-offs and landings, aerospace components remain safe.

At Southern Manufacturing 2020 it will showcase its range of liquid penetrant inspection (LPI) and magnetic particle inspection (MPI) solutions for non-destructive testing. The LPI range includes fluorescent and visible penetrants, cleaners, emulsifiers, developers, penetrant inspection equipment and penetrant rinse water treatment units. The MPI range includes fluorescent and visible magnetic particles, contrast paints, water bath additives, cleaners, test benches, mobile test units, demagnetisation units, magnetic yokes and UV lights.

Highlights include the new Y-2, AC electromagnetic yoke that creates strong magnetic fields for the detection of surface indications during magnetic particle testing. It is lightweight with an ergonomic grip and trigger for field inspection and to improve inspector productivity through a lightweight, ergonomic design.

Also featured will be a new range of water-based fluorescent penetrants, used for finding cracks and flaws in castings, forgings, extrusions and other materials with rough surfaces. They are water-based and contain no petroleum distillates, which (depending on local regulations) may allow its rinse water to be disposed of directly into the sewage system.
