YM5 REMAGNETISER

.
Should you find it inconvenient to return your YM5 Yoke for re-magnetising, Magnaflux
have a specially designed fixture which allows you to re-magnetise it yourself.

Simple to operate, using a battery, discharging through coils which have the poles of the
YM5 Yoke within them.

MAGNETIC FIELD RISK

Persons susceptible to strong magnetic fields, including those with pacemakers, are
advised not to use or approach this equipment without seeking professional advice.

YM5 Yoke
Serial number:
YM5 YOKE KITS

The following kits are provided to compliment the YM5 Yoke:

Part number: 005K001 Carry case and aerosols (Yoke not included)
supplied as Magnaglo 14HF or Magnavis 7HF kit
Part number: 005K024 Carry case only (Yoke and aerosols not included)

















































USING THE YM5 YOKE
















The Yoke is placed on the workpiece perpendicular to the direction of the cracks.
Each leg can be moved in two directions at each joint, and the pole pieces rotate.
The operator can then adjust the spacing between the legs from about 25 mm to 250
mm and they can also contour the feet to produce a good flat contact on parts with
irregular shapes
The operator then applies the inspection medium, either wet or dry, and surface crack
indications will form immediately. The inspection can proceed rapidly in a series of
steps each finding cracks in a 150 mm x 150 mm area.
Since magnetic contact exists only between the Yoke and the workpiece arcing on the
part itself is impossible. However, damage could occur through inadequate care when
presenting the Yoke to the workpiece.

WARNING

Check the strength of the Yoke by applying the inspection medium to the keeper bar which
has artificial defects. Only remove the keeper bar to carry out inspection work.

DRY POWDERS


1 Grey
Maximum working temperature 315C

Magnaflux dry powders offer a range of colour to
give good contrast on as wide a variety of
finishes as possible. In the event of contrast not
being ideal for inspection, a thin layer of
Magnaflux WCP-2 White Contrast Paint can be
applied prior to testing.
All powders are of closely controlled particle size
and shape and have desirable magnetic
properties. For best results application should be
as a cloud applied near the surface while the
current is flowing. Excess powder settling out can
be blown off.

WCP-2 White Contrast Paint
Magnaflux WCP-2 is a quick-drying white
contrast paint which can be applied as a thin
coating prior to testing where enhanced contrast
is required.

SPECIFICATIONS

Magnaflux, Magnaglo and Magnavis concentrates, prepared inks and dry powders meet the
requirements of ASTM E-1444 with oil suspended inks and concentrates meeting AMS specifications,
plus appropriate industrial and Government specifications, Certifications are available on request.
