30 Question PT quiz

1. The part is an aluminium casting. Description - the casting has a very complex design. In one section there is a flat area having a thickness of 3 mm (1/8). In the centre of this area is a round section, 50mm (2) thick and 25mm (1) in diameter. There are linear indications about one-half the distance around the base where it joins into the thin section. The indication is termed:

3. A part to be penetrant tested has just been removed from a vapour degreaser. What is the next step in processing?

4. Rejection or acceptance of parts should be based on which of the following, in absence of written acceptance criteria?

5. The sulphur found in penetrant materials are detrimental to:

6. Which of the following is TRUE concerning vapour degreasing prior to penetrant inspection?

7. A part being processed through a fluorescent water-washable penetrant system was inadvertently left to drain overnight after the application of penetraut. What action should be taken?

8. Which of the following is an advantage of fluorescent penetrants over visible type penetrants?

9. The most difficult developers to remove are the

10. Which system would provide maximum sensitivity for detection of fatigue cracks in an aircraft wheel?
