Efficiently conducting MPI of ferromagnetic pipe and pipe welds to the highest standards of quality and excellence

Magnetic particle inspection (MPI) 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 magnetic particle testing, Shawcor provides all technicians with thorough instruction on the implementation of pre-approved MPI techniques and the resulting interpretation. And thanks to our vast branch network, we can mobilize a magnetic particle inspection team to virtually any project location.

DIVERSIFIED METHODS

Maximizing MPI 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 MPI 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
