The paper provides a brief review of modern sources of ultraviolet (UV) radiation used in fluorescent penetrant testing (FT). The differences in implementation of the method with different radiation sources (excilamps, mercury UV lamp and LED UV lamp) are revealed experimentally. It is shown that the XeCl excilamp is not inferior to other sources of UV radiation used in FT.
