Electric Power Applications of Magnetic Particle Testing

Magnetic particle testing is extensively used in power plants because a large number of components are made out of ferritic steels. Ferromagnetic materials allow application of magnetic particle techniques, including wet fluorescent, wet visible and dry powder. The most frequently used of these, because of its high sensitivity, is the wet fluorescent magnetic particle technique.
