LECTROMAX 6000-08
HEAVY DUTY MAGNETIC PARTICLE INSPECTION SYSTEM

The LECTROMAX 6000-08 an extremely versatile, high quality magnetic particle crack detection system, offering excellent performance and reliability.


It is designed specifically to meet the exacting demands for quality control during production and maintenance in the railroad, marine and general engineering industries.


In addition to conforming to the general standards for the testing of critical components with magnetising peak currents up to 6000 amps peak AC, plus halfwave DC, the LECTROMAX 6000 complies with MIL-M-6867C, ASTM E1444-94a, BS6072, AS1171, and Australian Electrical Standard AS3100.

The LECTROMAX 6000-08 is configured to comply with Queensland Rail Specification
WSP-RE-MES-30-009, Issue 2 dated 25/06/01, as a complete system and includes the following:-
• 6000 AMPS PEAK AC AND HWDC MAGNETISING POWER PACK.
• ACCEPT PARTS UP TO 4500MM LONG AND 2000Kg WEIGHT.
• 550mm I.D. TRAVERSING COIL.
• LIGHT RESTRICTING HOOD, AND DUAL AIR EXTRACTORS.
• DUAL BLACKLIGHT HAND LAMPS, AND ADJUSTABLE SUPPORT FIXTURE.
• OVERHEAD BLACKLIGHT AND WHITELIGHT ILLUMINATION.
• WORK SUPPORT STEADIES.
• RESIDUAL CURRENT SAFETY DEVICE.
• QUALITY CONTROL KIT.

BRIEF SPECIFICATION

  • Two axis magnetising to detect cracks in any direction.coil magnetising to check for radial or transverse cracks.cracks, and Current through part to check for longitudinal or lengthwise  

  • 6000 AC + 6000 half wave DC peak magnetising currents.AC to locate surface defects and DC for deeper penetration.

  • Accepts parts up to 4500mm long and 2000kg in weight.

  • 550mm internal diameter 4 turn coil, producing 12,000 peak ampereturns. Optional 750mm ID Coil.

  • Advanced control / display assembly. Multi-data panel displays, peak amperes, AC-DC selected mode, HEAD - COIL selected mode,thermal overload condition, rotary position of current control.

  • Continuously variable current control enabling setting of any desiredmagnetising current value from 100 amps up to the rated maximum.

  • The rotary position of the current control is displayed digitally in unit steps of 1-100.

  • Electronic self regulating current control maintains required current.

  • Electronic timer controls the period of the magnetising shots for consistent repeatability. Preset to 0.5 second.

  • Automatic push button AC electronic demagnetising.

  • When demagnetising is initiated, the actual current ammeter display ramps down to zero, over a period of 5 seconds, monitoring the diminishing AC demagnetisation cycle.

  • A special feature ensures that if the DC mode has been selected for magnetising, on initiating the demagnetising cycle, the mode automatically  changes to AC for the demagnetising cycle, then reverts back to DC.

  • Automatic electronic current overload protection.Magnetising cable takeoff points for special or off bench testing, e.g. engine blocks. Optional extension cable kit.

  • Pneumatic end clamp system fitted to both heads for positive electrical contact.

  • An air filter, regulator and gauge fitted to control and monitor the clamping pressure.

  • Supplied with adjustable roller steadies to support cylindrical parts from 50 to 300mm diameter and up to 1750kg in weight.

  • Left hand steady is cantileved from head to allow coil to be parked clear for loading parts.

  • 40 litre inspection fluid storage system with efficient jet agitation system suitable for oil or water based fluids.

  • Two 240V 2A general purpose power outlets for ancillary equipment.

  • Fitted with a residual current safety device to protect the operator in theevent of an earth circuit fault.

  • Padlockable mains isolation switch. All external enclosures and electrical controls to IP55 rating.
