BS EN 10228-1:2016 - Non-destructive testing of steel forgings. Magnetic particle inspection

BS EN 10228-1:2016

Non-destructive testing of steel forgings. Magnetic particle inspection

Status : Current, Under review   Published : June 2016



This European Standard describes techniques and acceptance criteria to be used for the magnetic particle testing of forgings manufactured from ferromagnetic materials. The method described is used for the detection of surface discontinuities. It can also detect discontinuities just below the surface but the sensitivity to such discontinuities decreases rapidly with depth.


A steel forging is considered to be ferromagnetic if the magnetic flux density is greater than 1 T for a tangential magnetic field strength of 2,4 kA/m.
