    The basic magnetizing requirements relative to magnetic particle testing are reviewed briefly and flux density (B) is established as the all important factor. Rules of thumb and various magnetic field measuring techniques are discussed relative to their usefulness in determining magnetizing levels. It points up the limited nature of field measuring techniques and classifies them as laboratory tools.
