126.96.36.199 Access. Not applicable.
188.8.131.52 Preparation of Part. The part shall be thoroughly cleaned. Refer to Preparation of Part or
184.108.40.206 NDI Equipment Settings. Refer to Magnetic Particle Method, paragraph 1.4.8.
220.127.116.11 Inspection Procedure. A magnetic field shall be applied to the part perpendicular to the orientation of possible
cracks. Position required for this inspection is illustrated in Figure 2-10.
a. Select AC on the AC/DC power switch.
b. Place probe/yoke legs on part as shown.
c. Press the test switch and apply a light coat of magnetic particle media at the same time.
Remove the media momentarily before removing the current. Current should be applied for no more than
d. Inspect for cracks using the black light.
