yoke pole spacing

Dear all,

I want to know what's the affect of pole spacing of yoke if I open the pole too close?

Hi Mulianto,
If you open the poles up too far, then the magnetic field between the poles may not be enough to detect the cracks you need to find.
If you keep them too close together, there are two risks
1. You will get a smaller coverage, so need to test next test much closer
2. You may saturate with magnetism and cause too big a background to see cracks.

That's a very simple explanation. Hope it helps.

Godfrey

Mulianto,

I use a Parker DA 200 probe. My manual recomends 5 to 6 inches between the legs. Here is a link to a PDF of the manual. I hope this helps.

You can see the effect with a simple specimen: a plate 50x250x20 mm with a subsurface 1-1,5 mm hole on the side. Good look, ciao, ezio

Pole spacing too close means the magnetic field between the the poles will be greater and it leads to non relevant indications named as banding.

Hi, Mulianto,

Making your Yoke pole spacing too close will create too much sensitivity due to the increase in the magnetic field strenght and that creates unnecessary indications. On the otherhand, making your pole spacing too far would provide lesser magnetic field strenght (lesser sensitivity).
So it is better for you to established your own correct pole spacing by doing some experimentation using same material of the same thickness with a known artificial defect and with that you can make your own appropriate MT procedure.
