Penetrant testing

Sophisticated testing methods
are behind clear testing instructions.

• PENETRATION TESTING – PT

Due to their capillary effect, surface defects can be made well visible using suitable test fluid that penetrates these defects and a developer that absorbs this fluid.

Despite its simplicity, this test method requires trained personnel in order to utilise the limits of the method comprehensively. For example, fluorescent substances increase sensitivity.


AEROSPACE ENGINEERING
Specially for the requirements of aerospace engineering, a stationary PT testing unit is operated at the Frankenthal location to fulfil special requirements of the aerospace industry, specifically in the series testing of components, with the required accuracy.

PENETRATION TESTING:
• coloured penetrants
• fluorescent penetrants
• oil basis
• water basis
• PT testing unit
