Dye Penetrant Testing (PT)


Skydew Energy Services (SES) performs Liquid Penetrant Testing in a variety of asset to identify discontinuities.Our team of technical expert with years of experience performs this test across various industries with wide range of shapes, sizes, and materials.

Liquid penetrant testing involves the application of a fluid with low viscosity to the material to be tested. This fluid seeps into any defects such as cracks or porosity before a developer is applied which allows the penetrant liquid to seep upwards and create a visible indication of the flaw. Liquid penetrant tests can be conducted using solvent removable penetrants, water washable penetrants or post-emulsifiable penetrants.
