Steel Structure Analyzer NOVOTEST KRC-M2 (Coercive Force Meter)

Steel Structure Analyzer NOVOTEST KRC-M2 is designed for measuring coercive force of metal products in accordance with IEC 60404-7 and is used for non-destructive testing of chemical-thermal, thermal and thermomechanical treatments, evaluation of mechanical properties and residual stresses.

Steel structure analyzer is used for determination of mechanical properties, and measurement the hardness of metal products, as well as measurements of products of ferromagnetic alloys in the presence of correlations between the studied parameters. In addition, the device is used for testing the surface layer of ferromagnetic material for grading the metal in steel grades.

KRC-M2 has an electromagnet transmitter with integrated Hall sensor and removable pole tips.

The operation principle of the device consist of following: initially is performed a magnetization of area of the tested object and after that its subsequent progressive demagnetization by the increasing of the field. Next, it is the fixation of the intensity of magnetic field in accordance with the coercive force of material of tested object and measurement the amplitude of signals from the Hall sensor.

The main area of using the Steel Structure Analyzer NOVOTEST KRC-M2 – is to analyse the stress-strain state and residual life of pipelines, elevators, cranes and lifts, pressure vessels, steel cables of bridges also it used in engineering and metallurgical industries.

novotest Magnetometer NOVOTEST MF-1M

Magnetometer NOVOTEST MF-1M

Magnetometer NOVOTEST MF-1M is designed to control the residual magnetization and study the magnetic heterogeneity of the surface of ferromagnetic products, to control the level of residual magnetization before welding gas and oil pipes, to control the induction of static (DC), alternating (AC) and pulsed magnetic fields generated by various magnetic and electromagnetic devices, such as magnetic particle flaw detectors, magnetic tables and chucks of grinding machines, demagnetizing devices, permanent magnets etc.

Main advantages and functions of Magnetometer NOVOTEST MF-1M:


The main purpose of the device is to measure the parameters of a static magnetic field – intensity (induction), as well as its gradient. Using a transverse probe, the user can measure the residual magnetization of the material after magnetic particle inspection, the level of the magnetic component of industrial interference, as well as the magnetic induction of a variety of devices, components and products.


The device allows user to measure the parameters of an alternating magnetic field – values of intensity (induction), as well as the parameters of single pulses of a magnetic field – peak values of intensity (induction).


The magnetometer can display the measured value in units of Ampere/Centimeter (A/cm), Gauss (Gs) and Tesla (mT). That is why sometimes such devices are called Teslameters or Gaussmeter gauges. Also in the device there is a conditional CODE scale, which allows user to assess the change in the magnetic fields of without reference to the scale.


The device has the function of displaying the signal like a graph, which allows the user to monitor the change in the magnetic field strength by scanning the product. Also, in this operating mode, the user can set thresholds for the limiting values of the measured parameters, when the grapf break this threshold the device emits a signal.


The device can be equipped with probes for operation in different ranges (± 100G, ± 1000G, ± 3000G), the narrower the range, the higher the measurement accuracy. The instrument is equipped with a transverse probe as standard, but axial probes can be made to order.


The device is sealed and can be used in conditions of high humidity, and the silicone case for the electronic unit makes the device shockproof. Also, the device is not demanding on the temperature of the operating environment, it is possible to use the device in the temperature range from -20 to + 40 ° C.


The device has the ability to create a measurement archive that can be transferred to a PC using special software.

Magnetic Test Samples

Magnetic Test Samples

We produce different types of magnetic test saples, such as: bars, plates, disks with different types of cracks.

The test blocks are used for:

  • quality comparison of different magnetic powders (particle solutions);
  • quality assurance of magnetic powders while working with the testing bench;
  • for quality analysis during the magnetic particle testing, also to check the correct dosing of magnetic powder in automatic testing.

MTU Test Block #3

The MTU test block #3 (is the reference block type 1 according to EN ISO 9934-2) is used to verify the indication sensitivity of magnetic particle crack detection agents.

The test block is a disk with two types (large and small) of natural cracks (in both sides).

The large cracks are sanding cracks and the small cracks are tension cracks.

The test block has been magnetized by use of the hole in the middle of the test block. The analys of the test block is made by comparison of the picture with the results of the test block with fluorescent magnetic powder and ultraviolet lamp.
