Liquid Penetrant Testing

The RUAG Space Materials Test Lab is certified for Non Destructive inspection of different structures and materials and for destructive testing methods as well. Because of the extensive experience and expertise gained during many years of testing our in-house projects, combined with the specialised test facilities developed in this time, ensure a reliable partner is available for all test services.

With our stationary equipment for penetration testing we can visually determine irregularities and cracks on parts. Using a fluorescent dye it is possible to make pores and cracks visible in the UV light. Brushing and spraying are also used for larger parts to apply the penetrant. As equipment the Ardrox Test Fluid System with high sensitive class III is used.

Briefly summarized:

• Detection of surface and subsurface defects

• High Sensitive Class III

Data acquisition: Operational data are recorded automatically; additional data acquisition can be provided
Project heritage: This facility is used for the test of space equipment as well as of other highly sensitive industrial products and prototypes.
Certification:
ISO/IEC 17025
ISO 9001
