There are many different types of magnetic particle equipment, ranging from small portable power packs to wet bench units, all the way to high-amperage stationary power packs for large structures.
If you are following ASTM E1444, ASTM E3024, ISO 9934, or Nadcap AC7114/2, your equipment must be calibrated on a semi-annual basis. No matter what type of magnetic particle equipment you have, and no matter which specification you follow, the same five steps are used to perform equipment calibration.
