Spectroline – born from the spectrum of light



With any industrial system, leaks of any kind—oil, hydraulics, gasoline, diesel fuel or water—are a source of major concern.

Left undetected and un repaired, these leaks will take a huge bite out of your profits. Plus they lead to equipment breakdown, accidents and environmental damage. They can disrupt production operations and increase equipment downtime, as well as lead to severe penalties for violation of tough environmental standards imposed by environment agencies and legislation. These and other factors make the need to find an effective, economical and efficient leak detection method all the more important and urgent.

Current Leak Detection Methods—How Effective Are They?

There are many leak detection methods, including visual inspection and bubble-up solutions. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. One significant disadvantage is that while all of these methods may find some leaks, they are not effective in finding all leaks. Another disadvantage is that it is hard to locate the leaks unless you are very close to the suspect leak site.

Many large industrial systems have hundreds of possible leak sites, including dozens of valves and fittings. Spectroline® fluorescent leak detection works effectively in any enclosed circulatory system where fluids are used for lubrication, hydraulics, cooling control or hydrostatic pressure testing. Fluorescent dyes also can reveal leaks in static systems that can be pressurised or agitated.

In terms of cost, ease of use and effectiveness, Spectroline® fluorescent leak detection is the best of all available methods. It is the easiest, quickest and most effective way to pinpoint the exact location of each and every leak—the first time, every time! It is also the only method that allows inspection of an entire system under virtually all operating conditions.
