MAGNETIC PARTICLE TESTING (MPT) - Level 1


Price             : RM 1,000
Location        : Puchong Selangor, Malaysia

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MAGNETIC PARTICLE TESTING (MT)

Magnetic Particle Inspection is a nondestructive testing method used for detecting surface and near surface flaws and defects. MPI is fast and relatively easy to apply, and surface preparation is not as critical as it is for other NDT methods. These characteristics make MPI one of the most widely utilized nondestructive testing methods. MPI uses magnetic fields and small magnetic particles similar to iron filings to detect flaws in components. The only real limitation is that the component being inspected must be made of a ferromagnetic material such as iron, nickel, cobalt, or one of their alloys. The method is used to inspect a variety of product forms including castings, forgings, and weldments. The structural steel, automotive, petrochemical, power generation, and aerospace industries are a few examples that utilize magnetic particle inspection. Underwater inspection is another area where magnetic particle inspection may be used to test items such as offshore structures and underwater pipelines.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The course provides a full appreciation in the techniques and methods of magnetic particle inspection. A high theory and practical content is offered by the course. The course will suit a wide variety of NDT personnel including QC inspector and technicians and relates to the inspection of forgings, casting and welded structures.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This course is opened to all participants, in particular NDT personnel, supervisors, NDT trainers, contractors and researchers and those who are interested in Ultrasonic Testing technique.
