With the increase in temperature, the material expands and pressure detects all the cracks in the part. The electro Magna flux used to detect cracks as well.

In a very common testing operation, a cylinder head is placed into the computerized testing machine and given a shot of magnetizing current. Then the crack testing fluid injected along with fluorescent particles, an electromagnetic spotlight is used to compare for longitudinal or latitude cracks. Of course, demagnetizing is a central part of the operation.
