Spectroline(R) OIL-GLO(R) and WATER-GLO(R) Fluorescent Leak Detection Dyes Find Industrial Leaks Fast

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - January 02, 2018) -

Leaks Glow Brightly Even from a Distance. Dyes for All System Applications.

The Spectroline® OIL-GLO® and WATER-GLO® series ultraviolet fluorescent dyes are designed to detect leaks in all circulating fluid systems. Find leaks fast in fuel, synthetic, lubricant, petroleum, water, and water/glycol-based systems. Just add a small amount of dye to the system and let it circulate. All leaks will glow brightly when scanned with a high-intensity Spectroline® leak detection lamp.

Customizable Colors for Finding Leaks in Different Systems

These customizable dyes fluoresce in many colors such as yellow, white, green, bright blue, red, and more. Use different colored dyes at the same time to detect leaks in different systems. Simply scan the area and find leaks quickly. The dye color used reveals which system is leaking.

Perfect for Preventative Maintenance

Equipment downtime is decreased when OIL-GLO® and WATER-GLO® series dyes are used as part of a preventative maintenance plan. Extend your equipment's life expectancy and reduce major repairs by using Spectroline® fluorescent leak detection dyes. Find leaks early to save time and money.

• Studies have found industrial equipment uses four times the amount of fluid necessary for their intended use. If a leak takes too long to find, it is common practice for operators to only replace the lost fluid and not fix the leak.

• It has been estimated over 100 million gallons (380 million liters) of hydraulic fluid could be saved every year, in North America alone, if leakage were eliminated.

• A hydraulic fluid leak of one drop per second translates into 420 U.S. gallons (1,600 L) lost per year. At $5 per gallon, the cost of this leakage would be approximately $2,100 per year.

Safe and Environmentally Friendly

OIL-GLO® and WATER-GLO® fluorescent dyes are registered to meet food-grade processing requirements. OIL-GLO® dyes meet category codes HTX-2 and HX-2. WATER-GLO® dyes meet category codes G7, GX, and HTX-2.
