(ASNT: SNT-TC-1A: 2011)

  • course description:

    This course deals with basic principles of Magnetic Particle Testing, safety precautions, magnetization methods & techniques, magnetization & electric current, magnetic particles and application methods, principles of demagnetization, magnetic testing equipment, types of discontinuities and evaluation techniques, and magnetic testing quality control. Students will prepare a detailed report with reference to test procedures, standards and codes of practice.

  • course learning outcomes:

    At the end of the course, the participants will be able to;
    - Understand basic Principles; Flux Fields; Alternating & Direct pulsating currents.
    - Understand factors affecting Depth of penetration.
    - Understand Effects of Discontinuities on Materials; Current calculation formulas.
    - Understand Current directional flow versus flux field; Discontinuities commonly detected.
    - Select the Proper Method of Magnetization; Sequence of operations.
    - Understand Demagnetization Procedures & Need for demagnetization of parts.
    - Operate Equipment; Black light type; Understand Light characteristics & Tests for black light intensity.
    - Understand Quality Control of Equipment and Processes; Malfunctioning of equipment.
    - Understand Bath concentration; Settling & Other bath-strength tests.
    - Test many numbers of flawed specimens using magnetic particle tests.
    - Interpret results based on ASTM/ASME standards and specifications
    . - Interpret the Company Procedure to perform acceptance/rejection.

  • Course outlines:

    - Hands-On Practical on weld specimens with Plate, Pipe, T, Nod and Nozzle configurations.
    - Hands-On Practical on Flawed forged specimens.
    - Reviews & Discussions.
    - Mock Up Tests, Home Works, and Examinations.
    - Test will be conducted in 3 methods:
