Defect Detection (Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) and Die Penetrant Testing (DPT))


How Does It Work?
There are field kits capable of performing both MPI and DPT. Field MPI uses a U-shaped electromagnet called a “yoke” to apply a magnetic field over the area being tested while visual contrast or florescent particles are applied, usually by being allowed to drift to deposition or sprayed on. Field DPT works very similarly to lab DPT, where a die with a high wetting coefficient is applied to the material and left to sit for a certain period of time, after which a developer is added and excess die is wiped away.
When should it be used?
