Abstract

This paper deals with inspection of broken strands in steel wire ropes using magnetic flux leakage (MFL) detection method-based wire rope tester. In this paper, performance of different sensors is studied experimentally in order to select suitable sensor which can appropriately detect the leakage in magnetic flux due to the defect. The Hall voltage signal corresponding to the defect gives peak at the position of the defect. Maximum and minimum signal voltages from the base signal determines the peak-to-peak amplitude verifying the capability and sensitivity of the sensor. The result of this study shows that the analog Hall sensor-Sensor G with sensitivity −90 mV/mT and range 0–10 mT is suitable for detection of defects in a wire rope.
