Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection
(FPI is available at our Hermitage, PA facility only)
Fast Testing On Large Parts
Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI process) is a quick and reliable method to inspect your critical metal parts for cracks or flaws before or after the heat treating process. Since FPI is a form of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), it allows a qualified inspector to make an evaluation without causing damage to your part. This low-cost inspection can not only locate surface-breaking defects in metals, but it can also detect casting and forging defects, weld integrity, cold working defects and fatigue cracks on in-service components.
