Dye Penetrant Testing

How Dye Penetrants Work The tested item is cleaned first before the penetrant is applied by dipping, spraying or brushing. The penetrant is given time to soak into any defects, the penetration time dependent on the chosen penetrant and customer requirement.  The excess penetrant is removed and the component is dried depending on the process […]

Dye Penetrant Testing

This non-destructive testing technique, also known as liquid penetrant inspection (LPI), is a cost-effective method used to locate surface breaking flaws such as cracks, porosity, laps, seams and other surface discontinuities. Dye penetrant inspection can be applied to both ferrous and non-ferrous materials and all non-porous materials (metals, plastics or ceramics). Penetrant testing is commonly […]

Colored Aerobatic Smoke

ESSENTIAL FOR EVERY AIRSHOW No airshow or aerial flying demonstration would be complete without bright trails of colored smoke trialing behind aircraft during flybys. Smoke is generated by spraying a highly atomized mist of paraffinic oil and dyes into the hot exhaust of a jet or piston engine aircraft. Effective generation of colored smoke is […]

Leak Detection

Leaks from equipment can not only lead to costly damage and repairs but can also lead to environmental pollution and unsafe human exposure. Today’s high performance engines require expensive, synthetic lubricants which can be expensive to replace due to an unresolved leak. Nova offers two modes of detection: visible and UV enhanced. For the simplest […]

Lubricants and Greases

CONCENTRATED LIQUID COLORED OILS FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS Coloring of lubricant oils and greases requires high performance  dyes to match the exacting demands of the application. Dyes for lubricants must withstand high temperatures and in many cases last for the lifetime of the lubricant until the next change. Novasolve dyes are selected to provide superior thermal […]
