Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) Testing

HomeMagnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) Testing
An inspection technique that detects volumetric changes, Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) Testing is facilitated by tank floor mapping utilizing today’s latest computerized equipment. With MFL, a strong magnet induces a magnetic field in the material. On a corrosion spot, a leakage field will arise. The larger the corrosion, the larger the leakage field.

After the fairly quick Magnetic Flux Leakage / MFL Inspection is complete, the suspect areas of the tank floor surface will be quantified by slower but more accurate Ultrasonic Testing (UT).

Mark IV Tank Floor Scanner is one of a new generation of MFL systems designed for the inspection of bulk liquid storage tank floors. The system takes advantage of the latest developments in magnet design to deliver enhanced performance on thicker floor plates 300mm.

Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) testing is a widely used, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) method for the detection of corrosion and pitting in steel structures. MFL is often used for integrity assessment of pipelines and storage tanks, but the principle can be applied to assets in any industrial sector.

MAGNETIC FLUX LEAKAGE PRINCIPLE

The basic principle behind MFL involves magnetizing a ferrous metal object to saturation level with a powerful magnetic field. Where the object has no flaws, the magnetic flux will remain undisturbed.

High magnetization levels are required to differentiate corrosion from other pipeline features such as hard spots, stress and strain variations and to minimize the effects of remanent magnetization and velocity.

Where there is internal or external metal loss, the magnetic flux leaks from the object.

In the MFL testing device, a magnetic sensor is placed between the poles of a magnet yoke to record the leakage field by Hall-effect sensors. Eddy current sensors integrated in the magnetic flux sensors are used to improve the differentiation between internal and external defects.
