Give me a definite answer please.


What should be known for proper interpretion of liquid pentrant indiction?
(1) previous manufacturing processes performed on the part.
(2) technique used to in applying and removing the pentrant
(3) Method used to clean part prior to inspections
(4) all of the above
(5) None of the above

Hello HyunJoo

My opinion (no such thing as definite answers in NDT - everything is ring-fenced with conditions) as follows;

1) Definitely - I think that's an easy one with no explanation/clarification required

2) Definitely (though I did start typing "Hmmm"). You need to know that indications are not caused by using the wrong process, e.g. use of post-emulsiifiable penetrant on a rough-surfaced, unmachined casting or that defects have been missed through insufficient penetranetdwell time.

3) The easy answer is to say "Yes" again, and therefore Yes also to (4) and No to (5). I WILL say yes as the penetrant lab should have a Technical Instruction or Procedure available for each particular part with ALL relevant information on it.

Regards

Nigel

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.
