WE-3HD Heavy Duty Standard AC Magnetic Particle Yoke
Developed on industry standards but with Western Instruments’ ruggedness and high-quality built-in. The WE-3HD lifts well over 10 pounds, exceeding ASTM and ASME specifications for AC yokes. Recommended for dry method inspection but also performs well for wet method media, due to the exclusive slip-in switch cover and rugged strain relief. The WE-3HD has several premium features of the WC-Series Yokes, such as a multi-position power cord, making it superior to any competitive AC yoke.
The ergonomically designed housing and overall light weight helps reduce operator fatigue and strain, allowing for more effective inspections. The compact design and adjustable power cord position allows the WE-3HD to fit into confined spaces better than full-size yokes. The Urethane rubber housing provides superior durability in rugged environments, so the WE-3HD is suitable for harsh climates such as the Big Arctic or the Sahara Desert.
The fastest and easiest way to find surface discontinuities while performing a magnetic particle inspection is with an AC field. The AC field provides maximum magnetic particle mobility, which causes magnetic particles to migrate quickly and congregate at defects. Demagnetization is simple with this “one man inspection,” the operator simply activates the yoke while pulling it off the work piece.
