The MFL Compendium: Articles on Magnetic Flux Leakage

Product Number 212

The MFL Compendium: Articles on Magnetic Flux Leakage is a compilation of technical articles on magnetic flux leakage (MFL) drawn from ASNT’s monthly journal Materials Evaluation. The content offers real-world and laboratory-tested insight into the field of MFL. Students will find this publication to be an invaluable tool toward building an understanding of MFL while the seasoned technician will find the guide to be a useful reference document. The Compendium is one of the references used in the development of the ASNT NDT Level III examination for magnetic flux leakage and it is also cited as a training reference in the 2011 edition of ANSI/ASNT American National Standard CP-105.
