Flux Leakage Test

Independence Tube now has the capability to in-line Flux Leakage test products produced in our Chicago, Marseilles and Decatur Divisions. Flux Leakage testing relies on magnetic field measurement close to the surface of magnetized material. Flaws (defects) in the material cause "leakage" of the magnetic field. With the absolute and differential channels, this Flux Leakage system is able to detect a wide variety of defect types, from ID and OD notches to pinholes.

Flux Leakage is critical in those applications needing a superior tube as well as many of the ROPS (Roll Over Protective) applications in the market today. Flux Leakage works with superior absolute channels and also differential channels. This combination presents the best platform to detect and analyze many abnormalities in the weld.

Independence Tube produces structural steel tubing from prime steel on the most advanced tube mill equipment in the industry. High frequency welding techniques, now with in-line Flux Leakage testing assures the ultimate in weld integrity. Structural steel tubing's ease of fabrication, high strength and pleasing appearance make it a "First Choice" material. Potential applications are as unlimited as the designer's imagination.

Flash Removal and in-house Band Saw cutting also available.

Flux Leakage

A magnetic flux is generated in the tube and any leakage from the tube is easily detected.
