P-Series

Economical Power Pack Magnetic Current Generators

P-Series portable power packs are convenient and economical inspection units that are used in a wide range of magnetic particle inspection applications that require only moderate power.

These portable electromagntic current generators are ideal for inspecting large or heavy parts, in-service mobile equipment or job-site weld testing with magnetic particle inspection NDT method.

P-Series power packs are availble in two configurations P-70 and P-1500 to meet a variety of mag particle inspection needs. Click on the tabs below for more details on these configurations.
