Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI or MT) is an extension of visual inspection. This critical technique for non-destructive testing (NDT) is used for the detection of surface and near-surface flaws (discontinuities) in ferromagnetic materials.
MT electrically induces magnetic fields in ferrous material to create a highly sensitive inspection method. This method can detect miniscule cracks and slightly subsurface discontinuities that can lead to part fatigue and eventually part failure.
Africana NDT performs this fast and reliable inspection method on castings, forgings, weldments, automotive parts, fasteners, and critical component parts.
