FT175O-45 Orange Water Additive Fluorescent Tracer Dye (8oz twin necked bottle)
FT175O-45 is a concentrated leak tracer dye which is biodegradable, non-toxic and immediately miscible in water. It comes in an easy-to-use dispenser, making smaller system leaks such as toilet bowl and radiator leaks easy to find. It is especially suited to detecting leaks in large systems such as industrial cooling and closed loop systems and are ideally suited for water flow studies. It is unaffected by pH, absorption and photochemical decay. Recommended for water studies or to trace or monitor or analyze water flows, such as power plant discharges, industrial effluents, sewer and septic system flows as well as tracing roof leaks. It can be used in river dredging to check for possible back-seepage, and in canals and contaminated water for detecting underground seepage. The dilute solution is non-irritating, non-toxic and harmless to animal, vegetable and marine life. It is non-corrosive to metals, rubber or plastic. When diluted in as little as one ounce to 1,000 gallons of water it produces a colorless solution which will be visible only under UV (black) light (400nm) using safety glasses.(UV L105-400 and Safety Glasses AG-EW-100). When FT175 is diluted one ounce to 100 gallons, it is visible to the naked eye in normal light as well as fluorescent under UV light. For best results FT175O should be diluted two ounces to 100 gallons. It can be used to detect leaks in any water or water/ glycol, static or circulating system.
