How to Do Visible Dye Penetrant Testing [Video]

  •  

In this article, we demonstrate how to do dye penetrant inspection using Magnaflux visible penetrant.

 

This video demonstrates how to do dye penetrant inspection using color-contrast penetrant in visible light.

 

1. Prepare

Clean the part by spraying SKC-S onto the surface.  Next, wipe the part dry with a clean cloth.
 

2. Penetrant 

Apply the penetrant to the test area. Allow the penetrant to dwell for 10-30 minutes. Then, remove the excess penetrant by wiping the part down using a clean dry cloth.
 

3. Developer

Apply the developer to the test area. Allow the developer to dwell for 10-60 minutes.
 

4. Inspect 

Examine the part for any bright, clear indications.

Please wait while we gather your results.
