Liquid Penetrant Inspection uses capillary action to determine any surface-type discontinuities. This type of non-destructive inspection makes any defects easier to see by using colored or fluorescent dye. Liquid penetrant inspection is able to be used on almost any material, however it can only be used to inspect for flaws that break the surface of the testing sample.
Common Liquid Penetrant Inspection Findings
- Cracks from fatigue, quenching, or grinding
