Fluid leak detection

UV fluorescent additive is mixed with a fluid system, e.g. water, oils, fuels, coolants and refrigerants. The equipment is then operated as normal to allow the fluorescent additive to circulate throughout.

Inspection under UV blacklight of all external surfaces, pipework, joints and coils will reveal leaks as a bright fluorescent yellow/green glow. This process can be used for routine quality control or troubleshooting procedures and offers an improved probability of fluid leak detection.

We manufacture a selection of handheld or fixed-mount units with waterproof options available, suitable for damp or wet environments.

Your UV light solution should emit the correct wavelength required for the process, provide the minimum UVA irradiance levels at the working position and provide suitable coverage over the working area.
