Your rolls are inspected, tested and evaluated using two primary methods of destructive testing:
- Liquid Penetration Testing – A low viscosity fluid is applied to the roll surface allowing fissures and voids to be filled with said fluid, while excess material is removed from the surface. Using a fluorescent light, the developer reveals the locations of any cracks or voids via luminescence.
- Magnetic Particle Testing – Using an articulated AC/DC yoke, a magnetic field is applied to the surface of the metal being studied. From here, a magnetic particle solution is applied to the surface within the magnetic field. The field will orient the particles around any break in the magnetic field, including cracks or voids.
PRG can offer a multitude of non-destructive testing that you may need. Speak with your representative today about different opportunities.
