Hydrocarbons

The smallest amount of hydrocarbon contamination (oil or grease) within an oxygen vessel or connecting pipework can result in catastrophic consequences. It is literally an explosive mixture.

Most hydrocarbons will naturally fluoresce under UV blacklight illumination and therefore this process is absolutely essential for all oxygen vessel and plant manufacturers.

We have a wide range of UV blacklights for fluorescent inspection, your equipment selection criteria should be based on your particular process requirements:

  • UV wavelength (usually 365 nm for fluorescent inspection applications)
  • Minimum UV irradiance levels (dictated by working standards or ambient light levels)
  • Inspection area (exposure should be restricted to the working area)

Our friendly, helpful team have over 50 years experience in helping organisations implement a safe and effective UV light process, so should you wish to discuss you requirements or request a quotation for suitable solution, please call 0121 423 2000 or send us a message.
