What’s New with Dye Penetrant Inspection Solutions?

Dye penetrant testing is a non-destructive method of testing that’s used on various non-porous materials. These include ceramics, plastics, metals and other materials to detect surface defects. These defects might not be easily visible when looking at it with the naked eye, but DPT non-destructive testing makes it easier to spot, without destroying the material it’s testing.

This technology dates back to the 1900s, and has certainly come a long way. It makes use of passageway action as it effectively draws liquids into a tight space. Consistency inside the liquid and inter-molecular forces among the solid and liquid then help draw liquid up without outside force, despite of opposing forces.

Dye penetrant testing is popular for many reasons, one of which is because of its competitiveness, and its incredible flexibility. This form of testing can be applied to an extensive range of applications and sectors, ranging from pipelines to welds, storage tanks and valves, among many others. These are only a few of the ways that this cutting edge technology continues to add value to businesses and sectors across South Africa’s economy.

Why Should You Choose Dye Penetrant Testing?

There are many reasons behind the popularity of this NDT testing technology. For one, it offers an effective surface opening flaw detection test on both non-ferrous and ferrous components. It is also a halogen and sulphur-free developer, and testing can be carried out according to ASME V Article 6, BS EN 1371-1, and ISO 3452-1, among others.

When choosing to work with an NDT testing company, it’s best to partner with seasoned professionals who have been around a while.
