Hello Gregory,

What requirement (specification) are you working? ASTM E1417 makes reference, but details and answers to any questions can be found here.

Sorry, I work with ASTM E1417. We use PSM-5 (TAM146040) in our company. I need information about establisment baseline on this sample. I know that we should establish baseline, take a reference picture, and take some liters of new unused penetrant pour to another tank and keep by year. After year we should do deterioration of the sample using new, unused penetrant. If in this period time I used to another batch no of the penetrant. Must I do new baseline and new pictures to each batch nr of pebnetrant?
You know what I meen??

In my opinion it is a good practice to baseline a new batch number. It may, or may not, be a specification or customer requirement.

Also, in reading your post again - you mention "deterioration of the sample".

Do you mean degradation of the panel?

Yes, deterioration=degradation.
I can't find information on this subject in our customer specification and it is problem for me.
Our responsible level 3 says that it should be do, but during the audit has denied. Now I don't know anything.

Gregory,

My best advise is to follow written intructions given in your procedure as approved by your Level 3. Also, direct questions to your Level 3 if possible. Hope this helps!

Still, specific questions will find answers here.

Best of Luck!

Gregory,

The TAM panel is to verify the condition of your penentrant. So as Tim mentinned previously, you should take a picture of every time you change the penentrant in your tank. As well, you should ensure propre cleaning of your TAM panel. Dried penetrant in the "stars" will result is false indications during your test.

Peersonnally, whenever I can, I keep my penetrant in the container and pour a quantity of it into a smaller container which I will brush onto the parts. This way, I do not contaminate my penentrant and same time with quality check that I no longer have to perform. Or, I use spray cans, again this prevent contamination of my products and save time on quality check that I do not have to perform.

Dear Gregory

in order to prepare base-line on PSM-5 (TAM146040) you should first process the panel with Un-Used materials when new panel is brought then measure the indication size with appropriate measuring device and note down the readings along with the 1: 1 size photograph. whenever you change the penetrant completely you have to re- establish the same. if you are just adding the penetrant just compare the panel using un-used penetrant matrials for its comparison, if you find notisable changes then you may have go with the level-3 consultation for next action to be taken. Point to remember is batch No of penetrant shall always be the batch no of new added penetrant.

After an year/according to the specification you are working for you need to re-process the panel with all Un-used materials and re-check the indication sizes for the degradation according to ASTM E 1417 the deference shall not be more than +/- 30% of first photograph.

Hello !!!
It has confirmed with my guesses.
I have to take a base picture each if I will change the penetrant.
Must I conduct degradation check only on first batch penetrant??
It is good practice buy penetrant in big tank then we have a one batch no and we won't have to do base-line often.

I have a one more question.
What error is permissible during calibration of manometer?
What deviation from the nominal value the manometr should show? I have mean +/_%value
Eventualy which norm I can find this informations in?

Dear gregory

As we work as per boeing we are using pressure gauge tolerance of +/- 5 PSI as per their standard which is accepted by other too. But for excess developer removal the pressure gauge is calibrated to 5% accuracy.

Frequency of calibration is as stated in ASTM E1417 - once in six months.
