CAPACITIVE DISCHARGE UNITS

A portable system for magnetizing tubulars from 2-3/8" thru 20" O.D. when performing magnetic particle inspection.  Wrapping method can be used to magnetize irregular shaped parts.

 

Key Features

  • Solid state charging circuits.
  • Two digital meters display cap bank voltage and output current.  Amps are displayed for approximately five (5) seconds.
  • Housed in a rugged plastic case with a gasket sealed lid. Our non-conductive plastic case is safer and lighter weight than typical aluminum enclosures and it won’t dent.
  • Fold down carrying handles allow easier handling of this 150 lb. (68 kg.) unit.
  • A trigger cable and AC power cable are both included.
  • Capacities are available from 6,000 amps to 15,000 amps.

Optional Accessories

  • RODS:  Solid aluminum rods screw together to make 48 feet of central conductor. Wrench flats provide easy tightening at joints. Insulating jacketing keeps the rod off the pipe I.D. surface.
  • ROD LIFT-OFF DISC SET:  A set of five (5) plastic discs are used to keep the rods closer to the pipe center, which is important when a uniform magnetic field is needed to perform MPI on 9-5/8" O.D. thru 20" O.D. tubulars.
  • CLAMPS:  Heavy-duty clamps help reduce the chance of arcing. These snap on & off clamps provide a large surface area to contact the rods and conduct maximum current. A set of two is required.
  • CABLES:  Heavy duty copper cables with crimped connector lugs complete the circuit between the CD unit and the clamps.
