Complete List of Magnetic Yokes

Magnetic Yoke is a hand held devices that induces a magnetic field between two poles. Common applications for the magnetic yoke are for outdoor use, remote locations and weld inspection. For proper inspection the yoke needs to be rotated 90 degrees for every inspection area to detect horizontal and vertical discontinuities. These systems used dry magnetic powders, wet powders, or aerosol cans.
