Ferrite Content Meter for Measurement of the Ferrite Content in Austenitic and Duplex Steel

Measuring Ferrite Content Has Never Been Easier

Sometimes, knowing the exact ferrite content is essential. Especially wherever austenitic steels and duplex steels have to withstand heat, aggressive chemicals and/or high pressure. If the ferrite content is too low (in the area of weld seams, for example) this can lead to a loss in strength. On the other hand, too-high ferrite content reduces corrosion resistance, toughness and ductility. But if you check the ferrite content with the Fischer Feritscope® FMP30C, you know for sure.

This handy instrument lets you measure the ferrite content anytime, anywhere – it’s fast, precise and non-destructive. It is particularly advantageous when used in chemical plants, energy plants and process engineering plants. The wide variety of Fischer probes makes it easy for you to measure the ferrite content, even if the spot is hard to reach. Just apply the probe and let the Feritscope® FMP30C handle the rest.

The FMP30C is designed to measure the ferrite content in the range of 0.1 – 80 % Fe or 0.1 – 110 FN using the magnetic induction method. Applications include austenitic cladding or welds in stainless steel pipes, containers, boilers or other products made of austenitic or duplex steels.

How it Works:

Upon probe placement on the surface of the specimen, the reading is displayed automatically and stored in the instrument. The instrument also features an "external start" function which allows you to use the probe on hard-to-reach areas, making it ideal for measurements in pipes, bores or grooves.

For inspecting weld seams on polished surfaces, the "continuous display" function provides continuous readings. A change in the ferrite content reading indicates that the weld seam has been found. When scanning the weld seam with the probe positioned, use the "continuous measurement capture" function as well so that the continuous readings are captured and stored. This provides a ferrite content profile along the weld seam.
