Magnetic particle inspection is a form of non destructive testing that we use to verify that a ferrous component is not cracked or damaged during it’s service life. Crack detection at H-E Parts Engine Solutions is done with the use of Magnaflux technology. Our personnel responsible for the test have acquired ASTM Level 2 certifications and undergo annual vision check’s to ensure that we can identify any surface defect that is illuminated under the Magnaflux’s black light. We rely on this method for all of the ferrous components in our remanufactured engines. This includes crankshafts, counterweights, connecting rods, gear-train and cylinder block. This process ensures that we detect defects early in the remanufacturing process.
