Magnaflux MD-Series Magnetic Wet Benches

The MD-series multi-directional magnetic bench offers alternating current, half wave direct current and 1-phase full wave direct current for time-saving multidirectional magnetization which can find defects in all orientations with one mag-cycle.  The two outputs (contact and flux flow coil) each offer AC, HWDC or 1-Phase FWDC, and are independently adjustable to balance the magnet field intensity.  MD-series magnetic benches are available in three models: MD-2030, MD-2060 and MD3-2060.

Description
