When glass lining has undergone mechanical or thermal stress it may gave tiny fractures that can’t be detected with visual inspection or spark testing. Statiflux uses a special powder that is electrically charged and sprayed onto the glass lining to reveal crack and defects.
Statiflux will locate invisibly small defects by marking them with powder. The Statiflux gun blows a cloud of charged particles onto the part being inspected. Often the pattern of powder accumulation yields clues to the cause of failure.
The materials used in the process are non-injurious to materials, operators, or food. Powder is available in multiple colors to ensure good contrast.
GTI trained technicians are available to go on site and perform Statiflux testing and analysis.
