Bob Bartol has spent his whole life working with electronics in almost every capacity and spent many hours in Physics classes. He currently holds 4 U.S. patents and has been making a living off one of the patents "The Bartol Mag-Probe" for over twenty years. Bartol Research's Mag-Probe now has a global reach and is dramatically reducing trouble shooting downtime anywhere a solenoid valve. relay, or contactor is used. F111 Air Force Projects - European Flight Competition January 1968 Bob attended electronics school in the Air Force. Upon graduation he was assigned to a fighter wing in Germany. During his assignment he prepared seven aircraft for European competition. The fighter wings aircraft won the competition. Bob then returned to the United States and taught advanced radar for two years. Two years later, he returned to Europe. During this assignment, Air Force headquarters Europe selected Bob to open a Precision Measuring Equipment Laboratory (P.M.E.L) in England. It was the first of its kind in the Air Force. Upon his return to the United States, Air Force headquarters assigned Bob to Air Force research command in Florida. This was strictly a scientific assignment for research and development. After three years he moved from Eglin AFB in Florida to Edwards Air Force Base in California where he had direct contact with the National Bureau of Standards and supported research and development aircraft. During this assignment, he designed a modification for the TF X fighter (F-111). This modification made possible an additional 9800 flying hours per year. The F111 was the first swing wing aircraft in history. General Dynamics completed the modification prior to acceptance by the U.S. Air Force. Modification of F111 Aircraft General Dynamics March 1968 As a result of increasing this flying time Bob Received an award from Edwards Air Force Base for Increasing flying time of the F111 by 9,800 hours per year. The Award was Presented by Colonel Grumbles to TSGT Bob Bartol on June 17, 1968

Relay Test for Cockpit Lighting on Airbus 321

Relay Test for Cockpit Lighting on Airbus 321 The video below shows a relay test for the cockpit lighting on an Airbus 321 Relays on aircraft are typically bolted down to panels.  This makes it difficult to conduct a test.  In many cases the relay is removed from the panel and a bench test is conducted.  With the…

Demagnetization Test

Demagnetization Test Conducted Using the Mag-Probe

Demagnetization Test Conducted After Making Magnetized Metal Part Crack Test An Academic/Professional wrote in a Cole-Parmer Review. “We use it to ensure magnetism is present and then to make sure the magnetism is gone after our checking for cracks.”   The magnetization and demagnetization test process can be lengthy as you will see by Reading the…

 Cancer Procedure Magnetic Theory “This procedure does not constitute medical advice to any particular person, nor is the author engaged in the practice of medicine. Use of this procedure is at your own risk.” The University of California Davis made a major breakthrough when they discovered how to attach iron oxide Nanoparticles to the receptors…

Oil and Gas Worker Lay Offs Continue

Oil and Gas worker lay offs continue to rise as crude oil nears $40.00 per barrel.  Goldman Sachs raises the possibility of oil dropping to $20.00 per barrel.  With lay offs around the world at a record high of over 250,00 employees the oil and gas workers that remain must work more efficiently and use tools that…

Mag-Probe Applications Organized by Industry

Bartol Mag-Probe Applications Organized  by Industry     We understand that in many industries there are overlapping Mag-Probe applications. In the aircraft industry there are airports, and airports have elevators and escalators that also have relays and solenoid valves that need to be tested.  They also have vehicles with electronic ignition, another application of the Mag-Probe.…
