Abstract
Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) sometimes occurs in the heat exchanger tubes of aging nuclear power plants. Magnetic particle Testing (MT) is used to facilitate visual observation on SCC. The MT was improved by the micro capsules which were containing both fluorescent pigment and magnetic particles. The magnetic particle micro capsules (MPMC) were fabricated by liquid mixture synthesis in various magnetic particle weight concentrations. MPMCs with < 10 wt% successfully maintained the spherical shape. MPMCs with 2 wt% and 6.7 wt% MPMCs were drawn around the electromagnet poles. Furthermore these capsules were easy to be confirmed by shining on side illumination. The proposed MPMC will be useful for MT to inspect the SCC symptom
