Magnaflux Services In Shop and Field Services

Crack detection is done with the use of Magnaflux technology at  Neponset Valley Machine. We have  trained to properly identify any inclusions before components are put back into operation. While much of this work is done for engine components, we are also set up to inspect many other non engine related components such as gears, spindles, shafts, etc.

Crack Detection/Magnaflux

Due to the age and stress of most engines the Magnuflux method is utilized to identify cracks in cylinder heads, engine blocks, connecting rods and crankshafts as well as other components of the engine that need to be checked.

The Magnuflux process utilizes an electrical current to produce magnetism in the part being checked,  a solution containing iron powder is flowed over the part.  The components having been magnetized will draw

the iron powder to the void area "crack" . Utilizing the ultraviolet black light clearly shows the flow "crack".
The Magnuflux process is a critical step many cracks would otherwise go unnoticed, particularly cracks in parts such as crankshafts. Cracks in crankshafts are often not  visible to the naked eye.
