SCSI has expanded its inspection capabilities with the addition of magnetic particle inspection (MPI) – a very sensitive nondestructive test method used to identify defects on the surface of parts made from ferromagnetic materials including:
– Attachment parts
– Con rods
– Ground engagement tools
– Machined or stamped parts
– Transmission cases
For heavier parts, or parts that need to be inspected off-site, SCSI uses a magnetic yoke hand-held device. This portable tool also helps with specific part areas the bigger machine can not reach.
Why use the wet fluorescent method of MPI?
Wet fluorescent MPI is more reliable and more sensitive to very fine defects and more convenient than the visible dry method. Plus,
– The wet suspension reduces the chance of adherence to surface contamination and allows for the use of smaller particles for better flow to small leakage fields
– Test samples are viewed in a dark environment under a black light where the fluorescent colors provide better visibility of indications
– The particles are contained in a liquid carrier for easier and more uniform spray application
How Does it Work?
