'I'his inventioxi relate a. coi1 und more particularly to a magnetizix ageoil that Is dlvlded and hinged und is otthe 'typeus'ed in the Magnaflux" or, IMagxiaglof meth ds of detecting flaws in metals.
By these methods, mets.l objects are coated with patticles having ma8netie propeflfles either in powder form or suspended ina liquid und the objects subsequentiy magnetized. the pattems 01 the particles indicating the presence 01 flaws in the materlal.
Heretofore, a solid type cfl was used to magnetize the artlcles to be tested, this txrpe coil alten causing greafi inconvenience when the ob- Jects to be testedwere o! large slze an'd not inovable readily. The split-type coi1 herein disclosed may be used re'adily oh any size-object without the necessity 01 the object be1ng reim'o ved from 1ts supports.
The object o1 this invehtionisizo provide a cofl for magnetlzing objectsywhich coil i.'s of a separable con'struction, can be plaeed about the object slmpiy and e1rpeditiously, .nd ca.n be used wlthout moving the object from itespports.

The ends 01' the coi1 I1 protrude through the Irame I II a.nd terminate in lugs 22, which are adaPted to receive eonnectors from an electrical source. Trunk-type latches 20 are provided for each pair o! frame sections II t lock them together.
In the operatlon of the device, the latches 20 are opened, the frame sectlons I I are swung apart about their hinges and the device 1s placed about the ohject to bemagnetized. The frame sections II are then swung I:ogether and locked by means 01' latches 20. The electrical terminals are connected to the lugs 22 on the ends of coil I! and the object 1s thereupon magnetized for the testlng operation.
