Magnetic Flux Leak (MFL) Inspections

Applied Technical Services offers magnetic flux leak (MFL) inspections in compliance with all relevant codes and standards. This testing method is commonly used in pipeline and storage tank inspections in the oil and gas industry.

What is MFL?

MFL, or magnetic flux leak, is an inspection method that utilizes electromagnetism to locate flaws and material degradation within steel structures and components. The magnets create a magnetic field that shows distortions if flaws such as corrosion, wall loss, and pitting are present. Flaws such as corrosion in tank floors can lead to loss of product and environmental damage. We strive to provide maximum inspection value to our clients by minimizing unscheduled downtime through our condition assessments.
