NDT for the Aerospace sector
NDT inspection techniques are widely used within the aerospace sector for the inspection of, for example, engines and airframe components. Inspection is carried out both at the point of manufacture and also during in-service maintenance. This safety critical sector demands the need for the highest quality NDT solutions.
The use of lightweight components within this sector means that surface defects will have a big impact on their integrity. For this reason Magnaflux magnetic particle and penetrant inspection of surface defects has been used for some considerable time. During the 1930s, Magnaflux magnetic particle inspection equipment, accessories and consumables were used for the detection of faults within steel components. The subsequent development of alloy components led to the demand for Magnaflux fluorescent penetrant inspection solutions.
Use our penetrants to to find flaws and defects in:
- Engine components
- Landing gear
- Helicopter gearboxes
In particular, Magnaflux’s ZYGLO® range of fluorescent penetrants is highly recognised and respected throughout the aerospace sector where industry approval, high quality and product consistency are essential prerequisites.
