As well as producing a wide range of metal hose assemblies we also have state of the art testing facilities which enable us to test both our own products and third party parts. One of the most popular and most accurate types of testing is dye penetrant inspection. It used to detect surface breaks and faults in components, such as hairline cracks, surface porosity and lack of penetrantin welds. It can be performed on in service conditions to asses equipment on your site, or in our testing facilities dependant on your requirements. It is often used on metal hose installation, metal bellows, metal hose assemblies and expansion joints. Dye penetrant inspection has many advantages with it being cost effective and accurate. It is also non destructive, allowing the elements to be thoroughly tested without being damaged.
