Glass bead blasting: Glass bead blasting is used for removal of oxidation, scale and rust. It is used primarily to prepare test samples for visual inspection and Rockwell testing of hardened areas. This is considered a value added service and is available to our customers upon request.
Magnetic Particle Inspection: This process is used to detect cracks, seams and various other defects. The steel parts are bathed with ferromagnetic particles. When magnetized, the particles line up directionally along these imperfections. When placed under an ultra violet light cracks become plainly visible. Magnetic particle inspection is used extensively as a necessary step in providing defect free heat treating.
