Liquid Penetrant Testing - Level III

Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT) is a widely used nondestructive testing method for detecting surface discontinuities in materials. This method involves applying a liquid dye to the surface of a material, allowing it to dwell for a specific period of time, and then removing the excess dye. The retained dye in surface discontinuities is drawn back onto the surface by applying a developer, forming visible indications. These indications are interpreted by qualified personnel to assess the presence and characteristics of defects. PT is effective for most non-absorbent materials and can utilize either visible or fluorescent dyes.
