By definition, penetrant testing (PT) is the resurgence of a liquid (or a gas) from a discontinuity in which it had previously been introduced during a penetration operation. A logical extension of the visual examination, this method makes it possible to detect discontinuities opened to the surface of the controlled part in the form of colored or fluorescent indications, respectively observed against a white background or on a black background.

 PT comes in four phases, the first of which is to clean the part to be controlled. This is a much important step. Badly performed, it leads to unusable results. A colored and / or fluorescent liquid, called "penetrant", is then applied to the surface to be controlled during the second phase. It penetrates by capillarity inside the discontinuities (corrosion cracks, porosities, pits, sinkholes, cold drops, lines, folds, gaps, rectification cracks, heat treatment taps, micro-incipient fractures, etc.), requiring a penetration time before the next step.

During the third phase, excess surface penetrant is removed in such a way as to keep the entrapped penetrant untouched. The surface can then be covered with a thin layer of "developer", which adsorbs the penetrant contained in the discontinuities.

During this fourth phase, the developer helps in making easily visible the indications of discontinuities that appear on the surface.

In this paper, we examine the 5L Gr steel API to detect surface defects and the external situation of the weld seam by experience, pursuit and then conclusion.

    ABSTRACT Steel is arguably the world’s most ‘advanced” material. It is a very versatile material with a wide range of attractive properties which can be produced at a very competitive cost. It has a diverse range of applications, and is second only to concrete in its annual production tonnage. Steel is not a new invention which leads to a... Continue Reading
    This project covers a study of the effect of seawater corrosion on 0.34% and 0.36% carbon steel compositions. Two (2) specimens (steel rods) of length 150mm (each) for both steel compositions were obtained. Out of each was gotten four (4) specimens of 10mm length, 10mm diameter and two (2) specimens of 50mm length, 10mm diameter. This yielded a... Continue Reading
    Carbon steel corrosion is a commonly encountered issue in pipelines transporting hydrocarbons containing corrosive agents such as CO2, H2S and water. As a result, several corrosion prediction models have been put forward over the years although no standard model exists for corrosion prediction in the industry. Two of such models are the Norsok...

    Abstract Welding is a way of heating pieces of metal using electricity or a flame so that they melt and stick together. It can simply be defined as the process of joining two or more pieces of metal to make the act as a single piece. This is often done by melting the work pieces and adding a filler material to form a pool of molten material that... Continue Reading
