MT testing - Magnetic particle method in lifting technology

The MT test (magnetic particle method) is an essential test method in lifting technology to ensure the safety and reliability of chains and other load handling equipment.

In view of the high stresses and safety-relevant functions of chains in lifting technology, regular inspection of the chain links for surface cracks using the magnetic particle method is essential. This procedure is required by law and serves to ensure that the chains meet the high requirements and safety standards.

During the MT test, the chain is placed in a magnetic field and then coated with a fine iron powder. The magnetization makes cracks and other surface defects clearly visible, as the iron powder collects on these irregularities. This inspection enables the precise identification of potential weak points that could remain undetected during a visual inspection.
