Magnaflux Cleaners/Removers & Emulsifiers

SpotCheck Cleaners/Removers and Emulsifiers

Overview

Cleaners/Removers penetrant materials are used for pre-cleaning before non-destructive testing and for removing excess surface penetrant from an inspection area before applying developer during liquid penetrant testing. Emulsifiers (available in Lipophilic and Hydrophilic versions), diffuses into the penetrant to clear the penetrant from the surface of the part being inspected and is then rinsed from the part by water to carry penetrant off the part surface. Comes in both liquid and aerosol forms (aerosol available for SKC-S only).

SKC-S, Cleaner & Remover, Class 2

SKC-S is an NDT-approved solvent cleaner/remover for pre-cleaning before non-destructive testing and for removing excess surface penetrant from an inspection area before applying developer during liquid penetrant testing. This non-halogenated solvent remover can be used on a wide range of substrates to remove oils, greases and other contaminants. SKC-S dries quickly without leaving a residue, and meets the low-residue requirements for NDT and aerospace penetrant testing.

Benefits

Maximize Range of Inspections

  • Inspect a wide range of components without worry
  • Conforms to AMS 2644 Class 2, ASME BPVC and all major aerospace requirements

Application Versatility

  • Use a single cleaner throughout the entire penetrant testing process
  • Comes in both bulk and aerosol forms, or as part of a kit for convenience
  • Use with various applicators, choose the sprayer that works best for your application

Minimize Risk of Missing a Flaw

  • Inspect reliably by cleaning only the surface without flushing penetrant out of discontinuities
  • Dries quickly without leaving residue to prevent false indications

Features

  • AMS 2644 Class 2 nonhalogenated remover
  • Fast drying
  • Leaves no residue
  • Suitable for use at low temperatures
  • Alloy compatibility
  • Bulk or aerosol form
  • Doesn’t over clean

ZE-4E, Lipophilic Emulsifier, Method B

A Method B lipophilic emulsifier, ZE-4E diffuses into the penetrant to clear the penetrant from the surface of the part being inspected. It is rinsed from the part by water, carrying penetrant off the part surface. Designed to be used with post-emulsifiable penetrants Level 2 ZL-2C, Level 3 ZL-27A or Level 4 ZL-37. Benefits include low volatility and a high flash point, so ZE-4E can be used in open immersion tanks. ZE-4E is listed on the QPL SAE AMS 2644 Qualified Product List.

Features

  • Low volatility
  • High flash point
  • Method B lipophilic emulsifier

ZR-10E, Hydrophilic Emulsifier, Method D

Designed to remove excess surface penetrant, ZR-10E minimizes surface background during Method D fluorescent penetrant testing while protecting indication integrity in critical component inspections. ZR-10E provides long tank life and excellent solution consistency for dependable, long-lasting performance in a variety of applications. This Method D remover reduces fluorescent background on rough surfaces and minimizes penetrant bleed-out from hollow parts. ZR-10E is tested and approved to AMS 2644 to work with Magnaflux PE penetrants ZL-2C Level 2, ZL-27A Level 3 and ZL-37 Level 4 for verified penetrant system reliability. ZR-10E is listed on the QPL SAE AMS 2644 Qualified Product List and is approved for use by Pratt & Whitney.

Benefits

Maximize Penetrant Inspection Process Control

  • PE penetrant system is less susceptible to human error since ZR-10E only works with rinse water to remove excess surface penetrant
  • Tested and confirmed per AMS 2644 to work with Magnaflux PE penetrants for verified penetrant system reliability
  • Maintains solution consistency for dependable performance with minimal agitation

Wide Range of Inspections

  • Flexible to work with many types of equipment and application methods
  • Inspect a wide range of high-value components without fear of corrosion or specification non-conformance
  • Meets all major industry and NDT specification requirements, including Aerospace Prime and OEM specs, AMS 2644 and ISO 3452

Features

  • Method D Hydrophilic emulsifier
  • Reduces bleed-out on hollow parts
  • Lower concentration required
  • Resist degradation from bacteria, fungus or other contaminants
  • QPL SAE AMS 2644 Qualified Product List
  • Approved for use by Pratt & Whitney
