14A Aqua-Glo

Water-Based Fluorescent Magnetic Particle Suspension

14A Aqua-Glo is a highly sensitive water-based magnetic particle suspension for locating very fine discontinuities in critical applications and difficult to reach areas. 14A Aqua-Glo offers the benefits of a water bath and the convenience of portable packaging. It is ideal for spot inspections and difficult to process situations where bulk processing is impractical.

This water-based, non-flammable formula contains high-sensitivity 14A fluorescent magnetic particles and is primarily used for field testing with a portable magnetic field generator. 14A Aqua-Glo is ready-to-use, and creates a bright yellow-green fluorescent indication when viewed with ultraviolet light. The ultra-sensitive particles provide clear, bright, fluorescent green indications under ultra-violet light for unbeatable inspection quality and accuracy.

14A Aqua-Glo is applied to magnetized parts prior to inspection. It is used to detect cracks and seams, as well as inclusions, laps, tears and flakes. 14A Aqua-Glo can detect flaws that are open to the surface of the part, or slightly sub-surface. Parts tested can be forgings, welds, castings, and stamped or machined ferromagnetic materials, such as steel and other alloys of iron, nickel, and cobalt.

Benefits

Increases indication detection with 14A particles

  • Find smaller, finer indications in critical applications using the highly sensitive, strong ferromagnetic 14A fluorescent particles
  • Optimized particle size and shape help particles move freely to stick to a wide variety of discontinuities with less particle clumping

Minimizes inspection time

  • Clear, bright fluorescent indications form quickly due to the highly fluorescent, highly mobile 14A magnetic particles
  • Minimal background fluorescence help indications stand out more so inspectors need to spend less time examining each part

Improve inspection consistency and reliability

  • Maintain magnetic particle system performance over greater periods of time thanks to the highly-durable, easily dispersed 14A particles
  • Reduced particle clumping helps maintain particle concentration in the suspension bath for dependable inspections

Convenient to use

  • Fast, reliable solution with immediately ready-to-use mixture of 14A magnetic particles, water conditioners and corrosion preventatives – no measuring or dilution required
  • Designed to be used in a variety of applicators, so you can choose your preferred method to apply the solution
