Inspection and Test (ITP)
a. NDT - Penetrant Examination/Test (DPI,LPI,FDPI,PT)
We DBV valve group co., ltd can do PT non-destructive test as customers require by the third party like TUV,BV,SGS,NATIONAL QUALITY SUPERVISION AND INSPECTION CENTER OF VALVE, etc .
Dye Penetrant Inspection (DPI) also called as Liquid Penetrant Inspection (LPI) or Penetrant Test ( PT) is fast, economical and widely used non destructive test method to detect surface-breaking discontinuities in all non-porous materials (metals, plastics, or ceramics).
Penetrant test is based upon the principles of capillary action where liquid penetrates into a cavity.
Penetrant test is performed by cleaning the test surface thoroughly, applying coloured or fluorescent penetrant, allowing penetration time, removal of excess penetrant followed by application of developer ( dry or liquid form).
The developer assists to draw penetrant out from the surface breaking discontinuities.
After developer dwelling the test surface is examined for bleed out under natural light or black (UV) light (depending on the type of penetrant).
Fluorescent Dye Penetrant Inspection (FDPI) is the most sensitive test method.
Dye penetrant Inspection (DPI) is predominantly used on non-ferrous materials in aerospace industries, shipping and offshore, petrochemical industries and stainless industry.
Some of the common parts tested are stainless steel welded joints, aluminium alloys joints, turbine blades, stainless steel fittings, castings and forgings, weld overlays (stellite), aerospace engine parts, etc.
We performs DPI / LPI / PT in accordance with AS 2062, ASTM E1417, ASTM E165, ASTM E1418, ASTM E433, ASTM 1209, ASTM E1219, ASTM E1220, ASME V Article 6, EN 571-1 and similar national and international standards.
