Liquid penetrant testing (PT) and magnetic particle testing (MT) are common nondestructive techniques to identify surface breaking defects and discontinuities. There are limitations and disadvantages of these techniques such as the need to remove coatings, handling and disposing of chemicals, limited traceability, and the general time-consuming process to perform these inspections. These limitations and disadvantages can be resolved by using eddy current arrays (ECA) as a complimentary technique. The 2019 ASME code now includes using ECA for the inspection of welds and other ferrous and non-ferrous materials. This webinar will show side by side examples of components tested with MT/PT alongside with data collected with an eddy current array. The objective is to show how ECA technology can be used to augment MT and PT. This is especially true for mission critical components requiring a high POD or to reduce the downtime required for an inspection.
The target audience for this webinar are asset owners who currently perform MT and PT exams and for eddy current users and technicians who are interested in seeing how ECA compares to MT and PT.
About American Society for Nondestructive Testing
The American Society for Nondestructive Testing,
Inc. (ASNT) is the world's largest technical society for nondestructive testing
(NDT) professionals. Through our organization and membership, we provide a
forum for exchange of NDT technical information; NDT educational materials and
programs; and standards and services for the qualification and certification of
NDT personnel. ASNT promotes the discipline of NDT as a profession and
facilitates NDT research and technology applications.
ASNT Mission Statement
ASNT exists to create a safer world by advancing scientific,
engineering, and technical knowledge in the field of nondestructive testing.™
ASNT Strategic Objectives
Increase participation in society’s activities.
Promote an inclusive vision across ASNT’s
membership and the NDT community.
Be a premier provider of NDT/NDI/NDE/NDC
information including publications, references, archives, training and
Support national and international acceptance and
use of ASNT’s services.
Promote advancement of research and
implementation of NDE technology.
Grow ASNT through partnership with industry,
government, professional organizations and educational institutions.
Advocate and provide NDT personnel certification.
Maintain ASNT’s fiscal stability in order to
fulfill the society’s mission.
ASNT will identify paths for lifelong education
and career development within the NDT profession including theory, application
and skills for the practitioner, engineer and researcher.
