Magnetic particle inspection is a nondestructive inspection method used for defect detection in ferrous parts. The method is used to inspect a variety of product forms such as castings, forgings, and weldments. The only requirement from an inspectability standpoint is that the component being inspected must be made of a ferromagnetic material such as iron, nickel or cobalt, or some of their alloys. Ferromagnetic materials are materials that can be magnetized to a level that will allow the inspection to be effective. Many different industries use magnetic particle inspection for determining a component's fitness-for-use.

Some examples of industries that use magnetic particle inspection are the structural steel, automotive, petro-chemical, power generation and aerospace industries. Underwater inspection is another area where magnetic particle inspection may be used to test such things as offshore structures and underwater pipelines.
