Magnaflux Tool Steel Test Ring
The Magnaflux AS-5282 Tool Steel Ring (formerly Ketos Ring) is a magnetic particle test piece with pre-drilled holes to simulate subsurface discontinuities. It offers a reliable method of verifying magnetic particle system performance when actual test parts with discontinuities are not available.
The Tool Steel Ring is meant to be a quick overall system performance indicator. This ring is to be processed by the continuous method using a 1-inch diameter central conductor. When properly processed, indications of artificial subsurface discontinuities will be produced on the circumferential surface of the ring. The number of indications produced is the function of magnetizing current amperage and the characteristics of the indicating medium.
