A highly-sensitive water-based magnetic particle fluid for non-destructive testing has been introduced by Magnaflux. Enabling visible non-fluorescent wet method magnetic particle testing, the fluid is designed to locate fine and medium discontinuities on finished parts.
The product, MV-740, provides clear, strong indications due to the heavy buildup of the highly magnetic particles. It is packaged ready-to-use with no need for dilution and can be used with the company’s WCP-2 white contrast paint to improve contrast and inspection sensitivity.
The particle buildup around leakage fields make for heavy-contrast indications, enabling the inspection of a wide range of components without fear of corrosion or specification non-conformance, says the company. Inspections can be performed in all conditions without the need for darkness or UV lights, including at temperatures below freezing. For more info, see www.magnaflux.com.
