Magnetism Detector displays degree and polarity of residual magnetism in iron and steel objects.

Press Release Summary:

Pocket-sized, hand-held Magnetism Detector displays degree and polarity of residual magnetism in iron and steel objects. It operates by placing base of indicating needle against object being tested. Full-scale deflection is equal to approximately 20 gauss. Typical applications include checking products such as bar, tubing, or metal parts where magnetism can interfere with subsequent machining and handling operation, or with end use of product.

Magnetic Analysis Corporation (MAC) Offers Simple, Cost-Effective Magnetism Detector

MOUNT VERNON, NY/July 16, 2003 - Magnetic Analysis Corporation (MAC) now offers a pocket-sized, inexpensive magnetism detector that displays the degree and polarity of residual magnetism in iron and steel objects. The magnetism detector instantly measures field strength up to ± 20 gauss and determines field polarity, thus enabling users to quickly and easily avoid problems associated with unwanted magnetism. A convenient, hand-held device, the magnetism detector can be used by simply placing the base of its indicating needle against the object being tested. Full-scale deflection is equal to approximately 20 gauss. For example, a reading of ten gauss or less is usually acceptable when checking magnetized bar stock or tabing. Typical applications include checking products such as bar, tubing or metal parts where magnetism can interfere with subsequent machining and handling operations, or with the end use of the product. Other uses include checking tools and aircraft parts. MAC's magnetism detector is available at a low price, and can be purchased with batch discounts.
