Magnetic Particle MPI Testing Level 1, 2 Training – Trinity NDT, India

Magnetic particle testing or Magnetic particle inspection – called MPI inspection or magnetic crack detection – MPT / MT in short is one the most widely used Nondestructive testing method for inspection of ferro magnetic materials, components and structures made of Iron, Nickel and Cobalt alloys. As majority of engineering materials are predominantly made of Steel alloys this method is considered important in testing of materials in raw material, during manufacturing and in-service inspection stages. We also provide MPT testing services from our Aerospace NDT testing labs in Bangalore, India. It is also one of the largest magnetic particle testing services company.

MPI testing is one of the predominantly used NDE method considering the operating cost of equipment, consumables and certified Level I / II inspectors. Trinity Institute of NDT technology in Bangalore India is conducting Magnetic particle Inspection MPT testing training courses. The institute has participants from Hosur, Mysore, Mangalore, Hyderabad, Patna-Bihar, Chennai, Cochin, Ahmedabad and also Delhi NCR.  Trinity NDT training Institute is considered as the Best learning courses Institute for MPT test training in India.

MPI testing – Training

Magnetic particle testing method detects surface and subsurface discontinuities. The depth of detection varies considerably from material to material based on magnetic permeability, strength of magnetic flux generated, magnetic particle properties, sensitivity desired and orientation of discontinuity with respect to the direction of magnetic field induced. Although test method can prove sensitivity up to approximately around 14mm under ideal conditions, but in actual practice the detectability or sensitivity is much lesser. Our MPI training facility is serving candidates from Hosur, Mysore, Mangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Patna, Cochin and Ahmedabad apart from lot many other cities in India.

MPI inspection method is used for testing Automobile components, railway components, precision engineering components, shafts, gears, forgings, castings, plates, bars, rods, rolled products. The magnetic particle crack testing is also applicable for cylinders, pistons, hydraulic components, pressure vessel and boiler components, welded joints, structures, Aerospace components, components for ships, mining, oil and gas pipe line construction, storage tanks, bridges etc. Also this method detects fatigue cracks and other in-service discontinuities effectively. MPI equipment such as Permanent magnets, electromagnetic yokes, bench type MPI equipment with head shot technique, central conductor and coil techniques and prod technique are commonly used. This Magnetic particle MPI testing method also can be suitable for automation to test mass production components for detecting cracks and other anomalies. Know more about Trinity NDT – NABL ISO17025:2017 Accredited Inspection Services on MPI testing.


MT level 2 training & certification – SNT TC 1A & ISO9712

The test results depends largely on skill and proficiency of the magnetic particle testing MT Level I / II technician and it is essential to engage only qualified and certified professionals to carry out MPI testing. Employer based Certification program such ASNT SNT TC 1A Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 in Magnetic particle testing MPI Testing or EN479 or ISO9712 Level I and Level 2 or IS 13805 are some of the important training and certification courses available to get the individual to get certified in MPI testing.
