PL-10 and PL-8 Portable Magnetizing Coils
Parker's portable magnetizing coils are designed for magnetic particle inspection of ferrous metal parts. The new coils allow for the use of either dry powder or wet fluorescent inspection media and may be used for demagnetizing as well.
The coils are molded in a tough black polyurethane material and come equipped with a foot switch and 10' yellow neoprene power cord. The sealed electrical connection box has a 2" × 4.5" flat base, allowing the coil to stand in a vertical position. The coils are designed for a 50% duty cycle and are equipped with thermal overload protection. Both the PL-10 and the PL-8 operate from a standard 115 VAC, 60 Hz power source, but may also be operated from a 12 V battery. The PL10S and PL8S operate from a 230VAC, 50-60 Hz power source.
PULSED DC VERSIONS
Models PL-10PDC and PL-8PDC operate from a standard 115VAC input, but produce a powerful pulsed DC magnetic field.
PDC versions use a thumb-switch.
Plug the power cord of the coil into the appropriate outlet. Depress the foot switch. A definite magnetic pull will be felt by insertion of a ferrous metal object into the center of the coil. Inspection is accomplished by placing the part longitudinally parallel to the axis of the coil within the center of the coil nearer the outer circumference. Activate the foot switch and apply the inspection medium while the coil is energized. This is referred to as the continuous method and will reveal defects at right angles to the coil axis.
While using the wet method, allow the coil to remain energized for approximately two seconds after applying the wet medium. Remove the part for inspection.
To demagnetize a part after inspection, simply place the part within the coil near the outer circumference. While the coil is energized, remove or pull the part approximately two feet away from the coil before turning the coil off. Larger parts may be demagnetized by placing the coil directly over the part and withdrawing the coil in the same manner.
Note: The coil comes with a plastic carrying case.
Note: CE Certification is only required for electrical products sold in the EU or other overseas markets where applicable. It is not required in the U.S. and is generally not offered on 110V products.
