MFE 2412 Magnetic Flux Leakage Tank Floor Scanner

Does anybody have any experience in using the MFE 2412 Tank Floor Scanner manufactured by MFE Enterprises Incorporated, Texas, USA. We are having problems with floor plates which are not exactly flat.

Re: MFE 2412 Magnetic Flux Leakage Tank Floor Scanner
The problem with magnetic flux leakage floorscanning equipment is the sensors being either coil or hall effect are affected by changes in liftoff from the plate under test.

If the surface is extensively scalloped the bouncing around of the machine can give false indications. This can be rectified on some systems by lying thin plywood over the scalloped plate and scanning thru the ply after re-calibrating the instrument first. If the problem is wavy plates where the sensors get sharp changes in lift off not much can be done but to UT back up the area.

For your interest laminations in the plate also can give false indications. On some machines variations in the scanning speed can affect the the defect indications so UT backup is essential for most applications.

Re: MFE 2412 Magnetic Flux Leakage Tank Floor Scanner
I have yet to come across tank floor plates that are exactly flat. May I suggest that attention is paid to wear on the scanner wheels which can lead to excessive grounding of the magnetic carriage. A change in the scanning direction can also help. If warping is extreme it may be necessary to use the smaller scanning head. Some more information on the limitations of this technique can be found on our web page www.mfescan.com
