Magnetic Particle Inspection Probe/Yoke
Fluorescent Magnetic Particles
Preparation of Helicopter. The helicopter shall be prepared for safe ground maintenance. Partial
inspection for cause (visual indications, sites of mechanical damage, corrosion, etc.) may be performed on all exposed
surfaces of the installed part using this procedure. If required, the center cargo hook shall be removed in accordance
Access. Access is through the rescue hatch door. See Figure 1-4 - CH-47: 29; MH-47: 35.\par184.108.40.206
Preparation of Part. The center cargo hook shall be thoroughly cleaned. Refer to Preparation of Part or Area for NDI,
Inspection Procedure. A magnetic field shall be applied to the part perpendicular to the orientation of
possible cracks. Positions required for this inspection are illustrated in Figure 4-22.
Select AC on the AC/DC power switch.
Place probe/yoke on part in Position 1 as shown.
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 five seconds.
Inspect for cracks using the black light.
Repeat steps a. through e. for Position 2.
Marking and Recording of Inspection Results. Mark and record the inspection results as required by
