super austenitic plate material

Can anyone assist us on a way of measuring the residual magnetism (if any) on a super austenitic plate material after welding?

Re: super austenitic plate material
Austenitic stainless steels unlike Martensitic don't typically have residual magnetism problems. To verify this I would suggest using a Hall Effect Probe. Just out of curiousity, what is the AMS number of the material you are dealing with?

Re: super austenitic plate material
Austenitics do suffer from a magnetic effect especially after a weld repair, its called retained Delta ferrite.
Too higher delta ferrite can impair the corrosion properties of the stainless material. The delta ferrite levels usually found after welding to an approved weld procedure can be between 3-6% Fe, on repairs to a repair or un authorised re running of weld cap profiles levels of Fe can rise to around 10-12%.
Equipmemt used to measure accurately is the Forster Mangnetoscop 1.068 model.
