Penetrant Systems Monitor Problem KDS panels

Has anyone experienced problems using the KDS Panels from Sherwin Inc.?
We use the PE panels to monitor our level 4 sensitivity penetrant line on a daily basis. When we first started to using this type of monitor they seemed to work correctly, but after 2 months the small crack indications seem to disappear from both panels. We have been in contact with the vendor, but the problem still exist. What seems to be happening is the cracks clog with penetrant residues. According to the vendor, this shouldn't happen. We are now considering going back to the P&W style TAM panels. These panels do have a better track record and the cracks will not clog as frequently as the KDS panels.
Please let me know if you have experienced similar problems.

Re: Penetrant Systems Monitor Problem KDS panels
e have had simular problems with WW panels I have found a quick dip approximately 1 min in lime away uncloges the cracks Be very careful to long of a dip will destroy your panels : : Has anyone experienced problems using the KDS Panels from Sherwin Inc.?
