Liquid Penetrant Testing
NDE Professionals offers Liquid Penetrant NDT Testing. Liquid Penetrant is a nondestructive means of locating surface discontinuities based on capillarity or capillary action. A penetrating liquid is applied to the surface of the test specimen, and is allowed to seep into any surface discontinuities. If the discontinuity is small or narrow, such as cracks or pinholes, capillarity assists the penetration. After sufficient time has passed for the penetrant to enter the discontinuity... (read more)

Seven Steps to Successful Brazing
choice. The second major consideration in joint design is joint clearance, i.e., the distance between the faying surfaces. Because brazing works through capillary action and joint clearance defines the capillary, this is a critical consideration. For most brazing alloys in the B-CuP and B-Ag families
When Brazing Beats Welding
in that the temperature is considerably lower and does not melt the base metals. Rather, the heat source melts a filler metal and draws it into the joint by capillary action. It creates a metallurgical bond between the filler metal and part surfaces. Like welding, joint strength often exceeds that of the individual
the loaded zone of the bearing is reabsorbed by capillary action. Because these bearings can operate for long periods without additional lubricant, they can be used in inaccessible or inconvenient places where relubrication would be difficult. Adding from 1 to 3.5% graphite frequently enhances
