The global of NDT is the very confusing place, even for the most experienced Technicians/Engineers. So many methods, certification and so much accountability and responsibility for companies and individuals alike.
Magnetic particle testing is one of the most important non-destructive testing techniques used by many industries.This testing recognizes the interior imperfections in ferromagnetic substances like cobalt, and some of their alloys, iron, and steel etc. This is only one of the little kinds of Non-destructive testing skill and is so named since the materials and products are analyzed or study without equipment casualty. From the element in bridges to high performance, magnetic particle testing is used to identify the defective parts before they are put to use. Using the wrong implementation to match the component is the main source of incorrect testing. To understand the main problems relating to magnetic particle testing may go a long way toward allowing repeat phenomenon. The only requirements are that the product inspected must be made of ferromagnetic materials. We are offering Magnetic Particle Testing NDT training courses in our center.

How does magnetic particle testing work?

The concept is literally simple. Any metal or object that is magnetized will be surrounded by an invisible magnetic field. If there is any defect – like crack, space or a hole in the metal object the defect will cause an interference in the magnetic field. Magnetic particle testing allows you to get clearly see that disruption and then identify the defect.

Which Equipment is used for Magnetic Particle Testing?

These are the types of equipment which are used for magnetic particle testing
Whether equipment for wet or dry method
Magnetization requirements (AC or DC)
Demagnetization- incorporated or separate unit
Degree of automation
Amperage required
Line voltage requirements
Air supply requirement
Accessories needed or required.

Which Industries can use magnetic particle inspection?

1.  Structural steel industry
2. Petrochemical industry
3.   Aerospace industry
4.  Power generation industry
5. Automotive industry


In order to perform NDT extensively in all industrial applications, certification is mandatory. The certification is made in line with SNT-TC-1A of ASNT which is explained in detail.
SNT-TC-1A- Society for Non-destructive testing(SNT)
                     Technical Council (TC)
                     First Document(1A)
The document published by ASNT provides guidelines for the establishment of qualification and certification program. This will help the candidates in qualifying, a person engaged in any of the NDT methods. This is not a strict specification. So this can be modified according to the requirements.

What are the levels of qualification

There are three levels of qualification. They are

Target consumers

The usage of Magnetic particle testing is at some point in a manufacturing life cycle from an introductory form of the ingots to the finishing wrought or welded products after the item has been placed in service.

Customer service

The involvement of modern industry and the requirement for secure and more genuine products and equipment dictates the utilization of fabrication and testing methodology that protect maximum reliability. Magnetic particle testing can be applied properly provide:

1. Increased product usage and reliability
2. Identifying problems at the right time to improved production processes so that they can be corrected properly
3. To minimize the costs in terms of so many returned items and to make changes in that items.
4. Quality improvement

Why attend this course?

Candidates should have the opportunity to utilize a huge diversification of materials, castings, welds, and products on this academic and practical course. This course is highly suitable for beginners and also NDT experienced candidates.We are also provide excellent training and preparation for examinations.
