temper etch

I would like to hear the opinion of people using the barkausen noise method to reveal temper etch phenomena.

Thanks Myaakov@excite.com

We have been using Barkhausen noise for evaluating grinding processes for about 5 years now with great success. It prevented us having to spend a substantial amounts of money on a room to house the etching process, especially with the low flash point of the alcohol rinse.
I guess the only down side to the Barkhausen Noise Inspection process is the need for known burn standards to initally establish the settings. Fixturing to hold the parts is also needed.
We have always followed up with a swab nital etch when ever we found excessive stresses identified with the Barkhausen, and in all cases, we were able to verify the condition.
We have trained our machinists on how to use the machine and they attach a readout of the scan with the work order. We have yet to try and establish standards with chrome on them to look at stress slightly below the chrome plating, which would also be beneficial for us.

l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
