Mi-Glow® 418

Our Solution Results in:

  • Reduction of Mi Glow 418 consumption in NDT processes
  • Greater sensitivity and brightness of the Mi Glow 800 & Mi Glow 920 results in faster NDT inspections
  • Post heat treatment MPI capability (high temperature)

Mi-Glow® 418

Mi-Glow® 418 uses or latest generation Mi Glow® 800 and Mi Glow 920 particles which have exceptional sensitivity, uniform size, and ideal magnetic characteristics for fluorescent magnetic particle inspection. The elite combination of Mi- Glow® 800 and Mi Glow 920 allows for a tremendous range of detection from small to large discontinutities typically found in the NDT of forgings, castings, welds, and high volume NDT applications. Mi Glow 418 can also be used in a mixed lighting environment where total darkness is not possible or a safety concern. Mi Glow 418 is a fluorescent yellow/green powder premixed with borate free Wetting Agent #34 for use in water media. Borate free Wetting Agent #34 helps to alleviate potential health and safety concerns associated with chemistries containing borates. Wetting Agent #34 contains excellent corrosion inhibitors and offers incomparable defoaming properties ensuring a reliable magnetic particle inspection.

Mi Glow

Advantages

  • Borate free wetting agent with excellent wetting characteristics
  • Low foaming – Well controlled water conditioning agents
  • Economical - requires 53% less product to achieve desired concentration within a fluorescent MPI system (MG 418 requires 6 g/L compared to our direct competitor of 11.25 g/L)
  • Circle Systems unique bonding method offers a very tightly bonded particle which

Provides total particle encapsulation, eliminating free unbonded pigment, resulting in a low background, high performing magnetic particle inspection powder

Sensitivity – The superior Mi Glow 800 & Mi Glow 920 particles have larger surface areas which mean smaller sized particles with increased sensitivity and brightness
