Nondestructive testing of pressure equipment –
Part 4. Magnetic particle testing
1 Scope
1.1 This part of NB/T 47013 specifies the magnetic particle testing methods
and quality grading requirements for the pressure equipment weld and its raw
materials as well as the machined parts.
1.2 This part applies to the testing of the surface or near surface defects of the
ferromagnetic material sheet, composite sheet, pipe, fittings and forgings, as
well as the surface or near surface defects of the ferromagnetic material butt
joint, T-type welded joint and corner joint. It is not applicable to the testing of
the non-ferromagnetic materials.
1.3 The relevant bearing parts and structural parts of pressure equipment may
also be subjected to magnetic particle testing with reference to this part.

General requirements
3 Terms and definitions
The terms and definitions as defined in GB/T 12604.5 and NB/T 47013.1 as
well as the following terms and definitions apply to this part.
Relevant indication
It refers to the magnetic mark indication as formed due to the magnetic
particle absorption by the leakage magnetic field which is due to the
presence of flaw in the process of magnetic particle testing.
Non-related indication is non-relevant
It refers to the magnetic mark indication as formed by the magnetic particle
absorption by the leakage magnetic field due to the change of the cross
section or material permeability in the process of magnetic particle testing.
False indication
It refers to the magnetic mark indication which is not formed due to the
magnetic particle absorption by the leakage magnetic field.
Combinatorial magnetization
It refers to the magnetization method to produce a magnetic field the size
and direction of which is in circular, oval or spiral changes with time in the
Longitudinal/transverse flaw
