Efficiently conducting MT of ferromagnetic pipe and pipe welds to the highest standards of quality and excellence
MT is one of the most widely used non-destructive testing methods for identifying both surface and near sub-subsurface defects on ferromagnetic pipe and pipe welds.
After a magnetic field is introduced into the object, iron fillings are dusted onto the surface to be tested. The fillings will cluster along edges of a flaw to reveal cracks or other defects. Because extensive training is vital to ensure a proper inspection, Shawcor provides all technicians with thorough instruction on the implementation of pre-approved MT techniques and the resulting interpretation. And thanks to our vast branch network, we can mobilize an inspection team to virtually any project location.
Maximizing MT in conjunction with other non-destructive methods:
- Dry Powder
- Contrast Technique
- Wet Florescent Magnetic
HIGHLY TRAINED TECHNICIANS
Armed with many hours of training and adhering to all MT best practices and standards, Shawcor technicians ensure:
- Proper alignment between magnetic flux and the defect
- Post-inspection demagnetization as necessary
- A thorough evaluation and interpretation of anomalies
