ASTM E / EM – 16 Standard Practice for Liquid Penetrant Testing

Has unusual affinity for ceramic surfaces. Sherwin Visible Dye Penetrants. You must have JavaScript enabled in your browser to utilize the functionality of this website.

This practice is written so it can be specified on the engineering drawing, specification, or contract. Intense red color for maximum color contrast. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Ask the NDT Man. Widely accepted for use without developer, to find cracks on surfaces of light colored technical ceramics. Specification E contains information to help develop detailed requirements. Flaw marks show red on white D Developer background under normal, or “white light,” and glow orange under “black light.


These processes are applicable for the detection of discontinuities, such as lack of fusion, corrosion, cracks, laps, cold shuts, and porosity, that are open or connected to the surface mkl the component under examination.

Also may be used with the hydrostatic leak test. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. Click Here or Scroll Down for Pricing. JavaScript seem to be disabled in your browser.

See “Hydrostatic Leak Detection”. A water-removable visible dye 686 with sensitivity equivalent or superior to most nonwater-washable Type II penetrants. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Removable by water-spray, water wipe-off 68866 by solvent wipe-off. Also used extensively on metal surfaces, including weldments.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety mul health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Not as sensitive as standard DP visible dye penetrant for metal surface inspection.


Also, some cleaners, penetrants, and developers can have a deleterious effect on nonmetallic materials such as plastics.

Penetrant Inspection

Prior to examination, tests should be conducted to ensure that none of the cleaning or examination materials are harmful to the components to be examined. It sgd not a detailed how-to procedure to be used by the inspector and, therefore, must be supplemented by a detailed procedure that conforms to the requirements of this practice. ASME Code qualification procedure compliance. Saves time for weldment inspection before complete cooling maintain pre-heat temperaturein-service inspection of chemical processing equipment, etc.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.
