Carrier II

NDT-Approved Petroleum Base Suspension Vehicle

Carrier II is a high-purity NDT-approved suspension vehicle developed specifically for wet method magnetic particle testing. This petroleum distillate carrier oil provides excellent particle mobility, good suspension stability and enhanced corrosion protection for reliable, spec-compliant mag particle inspections.

Carrier II has virtually no odour for improved operator comfort, and contains special additives to minimise background fluorescence when using fluorescent materials.

  • Provides excellent particle mobility
  • Good dispersion stability
  • Protects parts and equipment against corrosion
  • Provides superior wetting and surface coverage
  • Low maintenance oil-based suspension
  • Very low toxicity
  • High flash point
  • Low volatility
  • Odourless
  • Wide temperature stability

Faster, more reliable inspections

  • Increases inspection speed and reliability by quickly wetting the entire test surface
  • Helps 14A particles to move at top speed to discontinuities

Decreases maintenance

  • Magnetic particle baths last longer due to slow evaporation, and are less susceptible to contamination from bacteria or fungus
  • Protects magnetic particles like 14A from wear and tear and keeps them evenly dispersed throughout the bath

Improves operator comfort
Made with a highly refined oil to reduce skin irritations and eliminate strong odors for a nicer work environment

More inspection flexibility

  • Can be used for virtually all magnetic particle inspections with conformance to all major international magnetic particle testing specifications
  • Prevents corrosion of most alloys and eliminates post-inspection processing for corrosion protection

Safer to use

  • Reduces EHS concerns with high flash point and low toxicity
  • Carrier II can go anywhere in an inspection line without worrying about fire or biological hazards

Increases equipment life-span
Protects magnetic particle equipment from internal rust and corrosion to keep expensive machines running longer with less downtime
