The professionals at American Babbitt can provide your business with the quality Liquid Penetration testing services you need for your equipment.

The extensive Liquid Penetration testing service provides a nondestructive testing service that involves a colored penetrating liquid that is applied to the surface of the material being tested. The liquid is drawn into defective areas in the material’s surface through capillary action and then drawn out to reveal itself to detection using UV lights or other methods, depending upon the type of penetrant and dye coloring used. Liquid Penetration testing is capable of detecting common and uncommon discontinuities open to the materials surface. Some of the most common discoveries are fatigue cracks, grinding cracks, overload and impact fractures, and weld discontinuities.
