Demagnetizers - Model 3534

The Gould-Bass Series 3534 Demagnetizers are designed particularly for removing the strong residual magnetic fields induced into parts by magnetic particle inspection magnetization, but they can be used with equal effectiveness in tool rooms and ships for general demagnetization applications.

Power Packs - Magne-Tech Retro Pak

Magne-Tech® Retro PaksTM are supplied as stand alone units. They are intended for use as replacements for outdated, worn out, inadequate power packs where the tank and frame unit is still serviceable.

The Retro Pak is ideal for use as a stand alone power pack for use with cables and prods and can be fitted with optional casters for ease of mobility.

Magne-Tech® Retro PaksTM enable the user to upgrade, replace or extend the life of wet horizontal magnetic bench units. All Retro Paks have a complete, independent control console which can be mounted, as show, or be placed anywhere within the length of the flexible conduit supplied.

A noteworthy features that a conventional magnetic bench can be converted to a MULTI-MAG® multidirectional unit at a minimal cost.

Magne-Tech Multi-Mag Models

The Gould-Bass Multi-Mag® systems provide outstanding defect detection and provide major time and cost savings over conventional magnetic testing methods. By providing for magnetization of the part in multiple directions in one firing sequence, virtually all defects can be revealed without having to process the part with a separate head shot and coil shot, which is the case with conventional magnetization techniques.

In the multidirectional (Multi-Mag®) mode, each power pack delivers current to the test part, with switching occurring at 0.003-second intervals. During a 0.5-second shot, some 90 directional switches will be made, that is, thirty in each direction occurring over the full 0.5-second. Thus the system appears to provide simultaneous magnetization while separating the application of field in al three directions. Current flows for a duration of 0.000 to 0.009 second based on the current control setting, and will repeat itself every 0.009 second for the full duration of the magnetizing shot. This switching sequence occurs in all three of the power packs on an individual basis. The multidirectional magnetization mode can be carried out with the choice of alternating current (AC), half-wave direct current (HWDC), or full-wave direct current (FWDC).

Features/Benefits:

  • Magnetizes in 1, 2 or 3 directions
  • Individually controllable outputs
  • Infinitely variable current control
  • Adjustable shot timer
  • Three magnetizing currents available: AC, HWDC, FWDC
  • Two modes available – Multi-mag® and conventional
  • Demagnetization – auto AC and/or reversing DC
  • Electronic plug-in control modules
  • Thermal overload protection
  • Digital ammeters with hold feature
  • Maximum ampere output up to 6,000 amperes
  • Unique agitation system maintains bath strength to within
  • 3% of theoretical level
  • Stainless steel tank
  • “Quick Break” incorporated in all machines
  • Auto-flood / auto sequencing (optional)
  • Centralized control panel provides operator ergonomics

Powered conveyor with inspection booth (optional)
