Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Capillary Test
English term or phrase: Capillary Test
The testing consists of a general visual inspection particularly for potential deformations,
cracks, breakages and damages which suggest an overload. Attention must also be paid
to heavy wear and corrosion damages. In order to prevent corrosion, we recommend to
keep the mobile components clean and oil them if required. Moreover, a visual inspection
of the welded joints should be conducted. In case of irregularities on the welded joints, a
MT - (Magnetic Leakage Flux Test) or a PT - (Capillary Test) testing method should be
applied.

Reference: Líquidos penetrantes (PT)

Reference information:
"Líquidos penetrantes (PT) - La inspección por líquidos penetrantes es un tipo de ensayo no destructivo por el cual localiza discontinuidades en base a la acción capilar de los líquidos. El procedimiento consiste en aplicar un líquido coloreado o fluorescente a la superficie en estudio, el cual penetra en cualquier discontinuidad que pudiera existir debido al fenómeno de capilaridad. Después de un determinado tiempo se remueve el exceso de líquido y se aplica un revelador, el cual absorbe el líquido que ha penetrado en las discontinuidades y sobre la capa del revelador se delinea el contorno de éstas
Una de las desventajas que Ensayos no Destructivos presenta este método es que sólo es aplicable a defectos superficiales y a materiales no porosos."

"Two very basic nondestructive testing methods, magnetic particle testing (MT) and liquid penetrant testing (PT), can be useful in identifying manufactured defects in components before they go into service where they could fail and identifying service related defects that arise from damage in use...This [PT] can be a fast and effective way to evaluate a weld repair for surface cracks or to evaluate machine components for fatigue cracks open to the surface. "

"Dye penetrant inspection (DP), also called liquid penetrate inspection (LPI) or penetrant testing (PT), is a widely applied and low-cost inspection method used to check surface-breaking defects in all non-porous materials (metals, plastics, or ceramics)...DPI [or LPI or PT] is based upon capillary action, where low surface tension fluid penetrates into clean and dry surface-breaking discontinuities. Penetrant may be applied to the test component by dipping, spraying, or brushing. After adequate penetration time has been allowed, the excess penetrant is removed and a developer is applied. The developer helps to draw penetrant out of the flaw so that an invisible indication becomes visible to the inspector. Inspection is performed under ultraviolet or white light, depending on the type of dye used - fluorescent or nonfluorescent (visible)."
