Understanding Liquid Dye Penetrant Testing Methods
The dye penetrant process has evolved since its inception to be even more effective for specific testing materials. The different types of dye penetrant testing include:
- Portable Method Stainless Steel Pipe Weld: This assessment process works for pipes and welds. Our portable method allows us to take our process to you, even if you work out in the field. We apply the specialized dye and perform a visual evaluation of the surface.
- Cracked Bolt Hole: This more focused form of dye penetrant testing involves applying the dye around bolt holes. These areas often undergo high forces, and cracks may begin to form without being immediately visible. Our dye penetrant process reveals defects before they become significant cracks that lead to system failure.
- Fluorescent Method: This process differs from standard dye penetrant methods because we use fluorescent dye. After completing the dyeing process, we can view the material under ultraviolet radiation in a dark area to create a strong contrast between the material and its defects. This method offers high levels of sensitivity.
