Course Description
The Magnetic Particle Level I and II course training is provided as required by ASNT SNT-TC-1A and CP-189 for Magnetic Level II technicians using the MT method.
Magnetic particle inspection is a method of locating surface and subsurface discontinuities in ferromagnetic materials. It depends on the fact that when the material or part under test is magnetized, magnetic discontinuities that lie in a direction generally transverse to the direction of the magnetic field will cause a leakage field to be formed at and above the surface of the part. The presence of this leakage field, and therefore the presence of the discontinuity, is detected by the use of finely divided ferromagnetic particles applied over the surface, with some of the particles being gathered and held by the leakage field. This magnetically held collection of particles forms an outline of the discontinuity and generally indicates its location, size, shape, and extent. Magnetic particles are applied over a surface as dry particles, or as wet particles in a liquid carrier such as water or oil.
The MT Level I and II course provides the technical, theoretical and practical knowledge to attain Level II certification from an employer once on the job experience requirements have been met. The course combines classroom lecture with hands on application of the method on flawed samples. Upon completion of the course and successfully passing the proficiency exam the student will be able to perform the duties of a Level II MT technician.
