Intended use of the TAM panel:
The TAM panel serves the user in his PT tests for the functional control of the complete penetrant process.
The TAM Panel is a stainless steel plate. Half of the test surface is hard coated. Five crack centers are evenly spaced in the hard coated strip. The crack centers are circular patterns forming a star. The unplated portion of the TAM panel has been grit blasted to a uniform surface roughness ideally suitable for evaluating residual penetrant background characteristics. Ra = 1,5 μm (1.5 μm)
The penetrant to be checked is applied onto the entire surface of the TAM panel by immersing, spraying, or brushing. After the prescribed penetrant dwell time, the excess penetrant is removed. The excess penetrant removal depends on the typ of penetrant. Rinsing with water or spraying with water or solvent or immersion dip or other methods. Afterwards, the surface is dried. Finally, the developer is applied. Usually after 5 to 10 minutes, the evaluation is carried out. In the hard coated strip the judgement is based on the number of visible crack centers. The uncoated portion of the panel can be used to check the excess penetrant removal by evaluating the amount of remaining penetrant.
