Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI)

Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI) is a nondestructive testing method for detecting discontinuities (cracks, seams, laps, cold shuts, laminations and porosity) that are open to the surface. The Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection Line is capable of meeting the requirements of ASTM E-1417 and ASTM E-165 and is equipped with an overhead monorail conveyor system which allows flexibility to:

An advanced spray system evenly coats each part with a fluorescent, water-washable penetrant. The fluorescent penetrant inspection system also utilizes automatic rinse nozzles, air knives, and a dry off oven that can be adjusted to the appropriate setting for YOUR application.

During the final stage of the process, the parts are examined under black light in a darkened area by a trained Level II Inspector in accordance with the requirements of SNT-TC-1A. CMF maintains a full staff of trained certified inspectors and system operators to assure a complete and effective inspection.
