1.0 PROPUSE
The purpose of this procedure is intended to provide the
customer and involved authorities with information concerning
methods, techniques .equipment and personnel to employed in
carrying out magnetic particle inspection ,Wet and Dry Nonfuorescent continuous method by AL-NABAA Inspection services.
Excluded from the scope of this procedure is MPI by the use of
prods. Should this method of testing become necessary then this
procedure shall be reviewed accordingly.

2.0 SCOPE
This procedure establishes minimum requirement for magnetic
particle testing (Wet and DRY non-fuorescent continuous )to be
perform by AL-NABAA inspection services NDT personnel. The
magnetic particle inspection shall be used to detect crack and
other discontinuities at or near the surface of the weld , raw
material , billet , blooms, castings and forgings like ferromagnetic
materials by electromagnetic yokes and permanent magnetic
yokes.

MPI

shall also mean Magnetic Particle Inspection or Magnetic


Particle Testing (MT/MPT),the process of Non-Destructive
Testing where by a magnetic field is induced into the test
area and with the application of very fine iron particles
suspended in a liquid. Detects surface or near-surface
discontinuities by means of distortions in the normal
magnetic field.

equipment against. Damage or accidental adjustments that would
invalidate calibration or prevent operating systems from
functioning correctly.
Appropriate personnel protective Equipment for the task being
carried out shall be worn. Consideration shall be given to the
working environment for example
- Construction site activities ,
- Fabrication shop activities,
- Working in confined spaces,
- Those associated
withthe
materials being used
,note
manufactures instructions,
- Those associated with the equipment being used and
electrical connections
etc,

PROCEDURE

9.1 Surface
preparation
Surface to be inspected shall be cleaned by the contract
and shall be free
from oil, grease thick paint ,loose rust, scale , which may
interfere with satisfactory testing .welds shall be cleaned
and dressed prior to testing and shall be free from
spatter and stag. The operator /technician shall inform
the client if he decides further cleaning is necessary, e.g.
by grinding .
9.2 INSPECTION
MEDIUM
9.2.1
The magnet particles used in the examination shall
have high permeability
,low retentively suitable size and shapes to produce
magnetic particle indication.

9.2.2
For wet method inspection with colored particles.,
(non-fuorescent), the inspection medium used shall be of
the black magnetic ink type delivered either by aerosol or
by a manually charged system . the concentration of
particle shall be as specified or recommended by the
manufacturers. Inks shall be of an internationally accepted
standard

9.2.3 A removable white medium shall be used to ensure that


a good surface contrast is obtained .the contrast medium
may be applied by either aerosol or brush. In both cases
care shall be taken to ensure an even coating.
9.2.4 For dry method of inspection the magnetic particle used
shall be an international standard and shall be applied
using a rubber bulb applicator
.The color shall be selected in order to provide adequate
contrast with the surface being examined.
9.2.5 The following Magnetic Particle material or equivalent
(section 6.0) shall be used.
Black magnetic ink
:
MR 70 Or
equivalent White Background Lacquer : MR
70 S Or equivalent
9.2.6 Where applicable testing shall be made after P.W.H.T. For
non P.W.H.T.
weld meant, at a minimum of 24 hours after the completion
of welding .
9.3 Magnetization
9.3.1permanent U shape magnet.AC or DC yokes shall be used
.
9.3.2 Each alternating current electromagnetic yoke shall have
a lifting power of at least10 lb. (4.5Kg) at the maximum
poles pacing that will be used .
9.3.3 Each direct current electromagnetic yoke or the permanent
magnetic yoke shall have a lifting power of at the least 40
lb. (18Kg) at the maximum pole spacing that will be used.
The lifting capacity of the magnet shall be verified at the start of
the working shift as per procedure AN-QA-NDT-MT-07-10: Control of
Measuring and Monitoring Devices .
9.3.4portable fux indictors shall be used to assess the intensity

9.4.1 the examination procedure to identify any surface or near
surface defects shall be in accordance with ASME BPV
Code .Section V ,Article 7 and shall be reported in
accordance with this procedure.
9.4.2 Examination shall be conducted with the surface to be
tested under continuous magnetization
whilst the
inspection medium is being applied.

9.4.3 At the least two separate examinations shall be


conducted on each test with the lines of magnetic fux
perpendicular to each other from one examination to the
second .
9.4.4Inspection shall be conducted with sufcient over tap to
ensure 100 percent coverage.

9.4.5Inspection shall not be carried out if the surface


temperature exceeds the 40 degrees C for wet continuous
magnetization technique.
9.5 Examination Area
9.5.1
Magnetic particle Testing indications may be inspected
in either natural or artificial white light. The intensity of
visible light at the surface of the part/work piece
undergoing examination should be a minimum of 1000 lux
and verified with lux meter where applicable.
9.5.2
For some field inspections ,visible light intensities 500
lux may be used
when agreed on by the contractor .
9.6 Demagnetization
9.6.1
Demagnetization shall be required following final
magnetic particle
9.6.2
When demagnetizing with yoke use alternating
current and energies the yoke. When it is in contact with
the test object, with current still applied separate the test
object or yoke relative to one another.
9.7 Post Cleaning
Remove all traces of magnetic particle and the vehicles from
the test object. Cleaning Shall be done with suitable solvent or by
other means.

10.0 ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA


The magnetic particle indication interpretation shall be as per one
of the criteria in depending on ASME Code Latest version the
