hall effect meter tangential field

Hi everybody..
I have a question on intensity magnetic field for MPT...
Most specific call for a field strenght of 30Gauss to 60Gauss to have a perfect magnetization of part. The question is:
Is correct to say: 30 Gauss Tanks and best regard
Aldo

hi aldo
better way to measure the intensity of magnetic field is placing a QQI on the surface of part, at a point where u got a clear indication that will be ur exact value in gauss can be measured with help of gauss meter can be in between 30 ~60 OR 30 gauss

Aldo,
FYI, most procedures specify the 30-60 gauss out of old versions of ASTM E 1444. The 2005 version has the 60 gauss maximum requirement removed. I've found that with using the QQI's, the current needed to properly see the QQI indication is usually greater than 60 (or sometimes much less than 30 G). It all depends on the material in question. QQI's is definitely the way to go, especially with irregular geometries.

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak
...
es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
