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 365nm 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.

Benefits of UV inspection
- Fast and effective, simple to use
- Easily integrated into new or existing processes
- Provides an added level of quality control
- Instant visualisation of fluorescent effects
UV inspection equipment
UV fluorescent inspection processes and applications
NDT crack detection
UV blacklights for use in conjunction with fluorescent dye penetrants and magnetic particles for highlighting defects in metals and ceramics.
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.
UV lamps are commonly used for clearcoat validation on printed circuit boards to ensure even coverage.
Detection of hydrocarbons
Most hydrocarbons will naturally fluoresce under UV blacklight illumination and therefore this process is absolutely essential for all oxygen vessel and plant manufacturers.
Citrus fruit inspection
UV inspection lamps are used as part of the quality control process during the processing of citrus fruits. Under our high-performance UV-A blacklights, hidden contamination and bruising will be highlighted.
Hygiene and cleanliness monitoring
UV inspection offers a quick, easy and effective method for improving cleanliness in hospitals, by monitoring the effectiveness of cleaning programme’s and benchmarking.
UV blacklights for enabling conservators to reveal evidence of imperfections, restoration and repair to items such as paintings, paper, books and ceramics, which are not easily visible under normal lighting.
UV lamps are commonly by egg inspectors to detect evidence of washing or wiping. All of our UV inspection lamps have a peak UV light output at 365 nm to provide bright fluorescent effects.
Hand hygiene training
Our UV lamps and glow products are used within the food and healthcare industries to teach best practise handwashing technique, help improve infection control and reduce cross-contamination.
Riboflavin wash cycle validation
UV blacklight inspection lamps are used in conjunction with an aqueous solution of riboflavin for wash sequence coverage validation of containment isolators used for dispensing toxic/active products.
A wide range of UV blacklights for detection of SmartWater, SelectaDNA and other signature sprays on detainers in police custody suites during forensic searches and identifying lost property.
Particle detection on parts prior to coating
UV-A blacklights are used to detect particles and contamination on components prior to spraying. This forms part of the quality control check to prevent pinhole defects once the parts have been coated.
Risk assessment of UV light exposure in the workplace training course
Providing information to help persons responsible for risk assessment and safe use of UV light equipment in your workplace, peace of mind that you’ve got risk assessment and control covered, along with the confidence and acceptance of your process by the workforce.
