Magnaflux is pleased to introduce a new and unique way to inspect small parts or small areas without the mess and penetrant overspray associated with aerosol cans. Zyglo and Spotcheck Penetrant Pens contain the same proven Magnaflux materials, but in easy-to-use pens. They are a sure bet in making it easy inspecting reworked parts, where only a small area needs to be processed.

• Ideal for testing small parts and areas

• Solvent removable

• Ultra high sensitivity (Zylgo)

• No Mess

For more information on the convenient and practical Penetrant Pens, contact Magnaflux at 847-657-5300 or on the web at www.magnaflux.com.

NEW From Daraclean
A Heavy-Duty and Economical
Powder Detergent
We are pleased to introduce a brand
new, heavy-duty powder detergent
named DARACLEAN ® LC5.
LC5 is a heavy-duty, cost effec-
tive, powder detergent for use with
most metals and hard surfaces. This
new product has proved success-
ful in removing dirt, grease, grime,
oil, waxes, and buffing compounds.
Using powerful chemical action,
oils and solids are broken down and
pulled free from part surfaces while
inhibitors prevent surface pitting
and corrosion. LC5 brings all these
benefits together in an economical
powder form.
For further information on this
new powder detergent, contact
Daraclean at 847-657-5300 or on
the web at www.magnaflux.com.

New AstM Revision Reflects trend toward Aqueous Cleaners

The latest revision of ASTM E-1417 included an update of Section 7.1.1, reflecting the ongoing trend moving away from solvents for cleaning. The new wording clearly puts aqueous-based cleaning on an even level to the traditional solvent cleaning and vapor degreasing.

Solvent cleaning remains the simplest method for preparing a surface for penetrant inspection. However, there can be several disadvantages, such as flammability, VOC’s, health and safety hazards, high material costs, and high disposal costs. All of these issues disappear when using an aqueous cleaning process. When changing over from solvent to an aqueous process, there are new factors to consider:

• Parts must be washed, rinsed, and dried

• Regular laboratory checks of cleaner concentration

• Base material compatibility with cleaner

• Specification compliance

In addition, aqueous pre-cleaning needs to be setup up correctly to ensure a successful inspection. When alkaline cleaners are not sufficiently rinsed, residues can mask surface flaws and degrade the dyes in both visible and fluorescent penetrant. Adequate rinsing is necessary to ensure all the soils and cleaner are removed. Rinsing with RO or DI water would be preferred to obtain a residue-free surface for inspection. Water remaining on the surface will prevent the penetrant from entering small cracks, so the part must be thoroughly dry before applying penetrant. Likewise, flash-rusting can mask small flaws and prevent the penetrant from wetting the surface, so an aqueous cleaner that includes corrosion inhibitors is recommended.

As always, pre-cleaning should be performed according to the specific guidelines set by the cognizant engineering organization or governing specification for the inspection.

penetrant examination. If etching is required, the parts shall be appropri-
ately cleaned, then etched and delivered to penetrant examination.

The following is an open letter sent by Magnaflux to Committee K and Committee E07 regarding tool steel ring performance issues that have been reported to us by several customers:

by Phyllis Doyle

ACCESSORy PRODUCT MANAGER

SUbjECT: TooL STEEL RING

This letter is being written to bring attention to an issue regarding Tool Steel Test Rings (Ketos Rings) and their adherence to the requirements of the AS-5282 specification. When this speci- fication was first developed in the late 1990’s the machinery used to create the table of predicted indications was a one phase FWDC output unit. At this time Magnaflux recognized a potential prob- lem, as the original intent of using the Tool Steel Rings to analyze sensitivity of dry powders required the use of a 3 phase FWDC machine. Three phase and single phase FWDC machines perform differ- ently, particularly at low amperage levels. The issue at hand is the differ- ence of magnetizing current available between single phase FWDC units and three phase FWDC units, especially in the 0 – 1000 amp output range. Below you will find two pictures. Each picture shows three rings, one manufactured by Magnaflux and the other two by differ- ent manufacturers. In one picture the rings were processed using a single phase FWDC MPI unit. In the other picture the rings were processed using a three phase FWDC MPI unit. In all cases the rings were processed at 500 amps using the same MPI bath. The differences in the rings performance are apparent. The one phase FWDC unit produces sharper, more distinct indications.

1 PH FWDC @ 500 Amps

The results from this evalua- tion identify a problem with current specifications regarding Tool Steel Test Rings. 500 amps delivered by a single phase FWDC MPI unit is not necessar- ily equivalent to 500 amps delivered by a three phase FWDC MPI unit. The Ketos Rings we have evaluated that have been manufactured by our competitors do not meet the letter of the overriding specifications at low amperage levels, yet they are being shipped as certified Ketos Rings. Magnaflux has recognized this issue in our own Ketos Rings, and have taken the correct action of stopping ship- ment of Ketos Rings until this issue can be resolved. The good news regarding the AS- 5282 specification is that it has led to the production of more consistent Tool Steel Test Rings, which are also more similar in performance. In addition, it appears that Rings have become much more consis- tent from batch to batch. However, the issue regarding magnetizing current is an issue that we feel must be resolved.

offered Solution:

Magnaflux recommends that the tables in ASTM E-1444 and AS-5282 be used as a guide, and that Ketos Ring performance should not be specifically held to these parameters. Actual ring performance needs to be monitored on a day to day basis (taking into account the

type of machine being used to provide magnetizing current). Customers should then simply monitor any changes to the performance of the Ketos Ring within the controlled environment (amperage setting, bath quality, bath timing, etc.) of a specific magnetic particle inspection machine or system. In this way the Tool Steel Ring will become a useful tool similar to the PM-5 Panel utilized today to monitor complete system functionality of Penetrant Inspection systems.

Magnaflux Position:

During the course of attempting to fully understand this issue, Magnaflux sus- pended the shipment of Ketos Rings to our customers. The only issue we have identified with the performance of our Rings is at the 500 amp level. In ALL other aspects the rings have met or exceeded specification requirements. All rings produced by other manufacturers that we have evaluated have yielded the exact same results. Because Magnaflux understands changes to specification language will take time, and because we know our rings are the same or superior to the other rings on the market, we have resumed the Ketos Ring shipments. This letter accompanies each ring as an explanation regarding the 500 amp level issue facing the entire industry.
