Non-destructive testing (NDT) can be simplistically described as a method used to conduct an inspection without moving or breaking the item or surrounding area under examination. One of the most helpful tools for NDT is the Ultraviolet (UV) lamp.
One aspect of UV lighting that gives it the edge is that it provides visibility into the area under inspection where otherwise, there is none. The magnetic particles or penetrants that are applied to the surfaces of the areas to be inspected become fluorescent, providing visibility into the tiniest of flaws, such as cracks, breaks, and positioning changes.
To achieve the most efficient, successful, and safe examinations, it is important to choose the correct UV lamp for the task at hand. UV LED lamps are highly recommended for non-destructive testing. In fact, for the most part, LED lamps have replaced incandescent and fluorescent lamps, which may not be easily available in the near future.
We sell both Handheld as well as Stationary UV Lamps which may consist of both LED as well as Fluorescent Bulbs.
