Liquid Penetrant Inspection

Penetrant testing can be performed on magnetic and non-magnetic materials, but does not work well on materials that are porous.

Liquid Penetrant Inspection Methods
  • Fluorescent Penetrants (Type 1) Water Washable (Method A) Medium Sensitivity (Level 2)
  • Fluorescent Penetrants (Type 1) Water Washable (Method A) High Sensitivity (Level 3)
  • Fluorescent Penetrants (Type 1) Post-Emulsifiable, Hydrophilic (Method D) Ultra-High Sensitivity (Level 4)

Magnetic Particle Inspection

Magnetic particle testing is fast, relatively easy to apply and part surface preparation is not as critical as it is for some other NDT methods.

Magnetic Particle Inspection Methods
  • Wet Fluorescent continuous method (bench)
  • Wet Fluorescent residual method (bench)
  • External cable wrap
  • External clamps
  • Yoke
