Liquid Penetrant Inspection

  • A liquid with high surface wetting characteristics is applied to the surface of the part and allowed time to seep into surface breaking defects.
  • The excess liquid is removed from the surface of the part.
  • A developer (powder) is applied to pull the trapped penetrant out the defect and spread it on the surface where it can be seen.
  • Visual inspection is the final step in the process. The penetrant used is often loaded with a fluorescent dye and the inspection is done under UV light to increase test sensitivity.
