This study proposes a method to nondestructively detect and evaluate tiny defects appearing at the tip of a rotating blade. The method utilizes a permanent magnet to generate a static magnetic field and detects the eddy currents induced by the blade moving inside the magnetic field. The eddy current is detected by the coil of the sensor. Experimental validations are carried out using a commercial pump. Artificial slits fabricated into the impeller were well detected in spite of the presence of a metallic case and a large lift-off.
