- very sensitive to surface breaking discontinuities.
- can be used to inspect almost any material.
- large volumes of parts can be inspected rapidly.
- indications are produced directly on the surface of the part.
Magnetic Particle Testing
- can detect both surface and subsurface defects on ferromagnetic materials.
- can be used to inspect iron, nickel, cobalt and their alloys.
- reliable method for locating surface cracks in ferromagnetic materials.
- can inspect parts with irregular shape easily.
Radiographic Testing(x-ray test)
- detection of surface and internal flaws.
- can inspect on most materials.
- provides a permanent record of the inspection.
- produce direct image of flaw.
- can be used to inspect internal area and inside surface of holes, bores and tubes of aircraft parts.
- special detailed inspection of engine internal condition, impeller, turbine blades, vanes, shrouds, liners, etc……
