Penetrant Testing

I have few questions regarding Penetrant Testing,

1. What is the nature of Penetrant and Developer, i.e.,whether
they are acid or base
2. What is the suitable cleaning method for dry developers?
3. Preheating the Penetrant/Specimen is recommended or not, what
is the effect of preheating?
4. What is the relationship between Dragoutloss and viscosity
5. How the rate of penetration is related to Viscosity, Specific
gravity and surface tension
6. What method shall be employed to inspect out side weld of
open ethelene storage tank
7. What is the suitable cleaning method for metals, rusted and
scaled surfaces
If any one knows the correct answer, please send you email
