Checkmor 200 GEL

Hello everybody

I used to buy the checkmor 200 liquid penetrant for inspecting welds. I read something about a gel penetrant called "Checkmor 200 GEL" but unfortunately I couldnt find any information about it on the internet.

Does anybody know something? Advantages/Disadvantages? How to remove? Which developer?

Thanks for every help!

Alex

Hello Alex,

In response to your questions, we have used, in the past, Checkmor 200 Gel. It's a thixotropic red dye penetrant which is water or solvent removable. The advantage being that it doesn't run like the usual penetrants, and is very good for overhead work. Was manufactured by Castrol, now belongs to Chemetall. This product is still available today.

Extended Range Variable Wall® Piping Calibration Blocks for Longseam Inspection

This set of two blocks has been specially designed for situations where ultrasonic examination tak

es place circumferentially or “around the curve” for applications such as inspection of longseam welds in piping and vessels. Jointly designed by PH Tool and Holloway NDT, the blocks feature side-drilled hole reflectors positioned within novel compound-curves, each with multiple thickness steps. The unique design results in a light and compact form factor, with the largest block weighing just over 15 lbs and spanning just 16 ¾”. Coverage is provided for nominal pipe sizes from 6” to 10” in the small block and 12” to a whopping 56” in the large block. The compound OD curves and multiple wall thicknesses actually exceed ASME requirements, providing exceptional signal response and measurement accuracy. Properly managing beam divergence off the ID and stabilizing beam skew due to probe rocking is essential to maintaining a consistent calibration when inspecting lengthwise on curved surfaces.
