Question about ASME section V , Article 6, liquid penetrant examination

Question about ASME section V , Article 6, liquid penetrant examination

(OP)
Im hoping a Level III or someone can answer my question about ASME section V , Article 6, liquid penetrant examination.

T-692 Examination records gives information that must be recorded I am questioning specifically (C)
“(c) type (number or letter designation of each penetrant, penetrant remover, emulsifier, and developer.
The definition of “type” In ASME V, section F
type: the descriptive term used for designating a penetrant as either fluorescent (type1) or visible (type 2).

There is a table in article 24, SE165 that shows classification of penetrant examination types and methods that when used with a visible or fluorescent penetrant would result in six different liquid penetrant techniques. I.e. Type II, Method C, = Visual, solvent removable as well in article 24 it lists different types of developers i.e. Aqueous Developer & non Aqueous developer.

On a report I am questioning if I list the following two options which option would be in compliance with the details listed in C above from ASME. specifically, what do they mean by Type and number or letter designation……

Penetrant Type= Magnaflux SKL-SP2 or Visible Type II
Penetrant remover= Magnaflux SKC-S or solvent removable Method C
Developer= Magnaflux SKD-S2 or non-aqueous form E.

Note: I got form “E” from the magnaflux website: “Classification: Form d Non-aqueous Type 1 Fluorescent (solvent based). Form e Non-aqueous Type 2 Visible Dye (solvent based).” I did not see this in ASME section V and I do not know where this “E” comes from

Or from a different penetrant family

Penetrant Type=Ardrox 906 or Visible Type II
Penetrant remover= Ardrox 9PR50 or solvent removable Method C
Developer= Ardrox 9D1B or non-aqueous form E.

The link for form “e” http://www.intechnde.com/store/downloads/Ardrox%20...

I did not see this in ASME section V and I do not know where this “E” comes from can someone tell me where this letter of designation can be found?

I hope someone out there can help clear this up

RE: Question about ASME section V , Article 6, liquid penetrant examination

(OP)
I found E

Note: I got form “E” for developer from The AMS 2644 and Mil-I-25135 classify developers into six standard forms. These forms are listed below:
1. Form a - Dry Powder
2. Form b - Water Soluble
3. Form c - Water Suspendable
4. Form d - Nonaqueous Type 1 Fluorescent (Solvent Based)
5. Form e - Nonaqueous Type 2 Visible Dye (Solvent Based)
6. Form f - Special Applications

The AMS 2644 is listed in reference documents in Section V, article 24,SE-165, 2.6

RE: Question about ASME section V , Article 6, liquid penetrant examination

Inspectacon,

The Type referred to in paragraph T-692 (c) is the "Magnaflux SKL-SP2" type description.

The Type I (fluorescent) or Type II (Visible) is covered in paragraph T-692 (b).

Consistency in nomenclature would be nice, but doesn't seem to happen very often.
