Product Information


ATH NDT Limited has developed a standard “off the shelf” roller penetrant line for industrial use sold through Fidgeon Limited. The benefit of having a roller penetrant line is that it reduces the manual handling of components. This roller penetrant line is manufactured using Stainless Steel and conforms to NADCAP standards. These units are fitted with NewGen NDT Penetrant process management systems.

Manual Penetrant Inspection Lines can be simple in design – Sometimes just being one or two adjacent stations to accommodate a wash-drain area. But Penetrant Inspection Lines can consist of a series of wash, drain and transfer stations, drying ovens, storm cabinets and UV inspection booths.
