Fluorescent Dyes pinpoint water leaks.

Press Release Summary:



Spectroline® WD-801 makes leak sites fluorescent blue, while WD-802 shows bright green color. Small amount of dye is added into system and allowed to circulate. Wherever water escapes, so does dye, which remains at site of all leaks. When scanned with high-intensity UV lamp, dye glows brightly to pinpoint leak location. Since dyes remain safely in system, they are also suited for preventive maintenance and will expose new leaks upon inspection with lamp.

Fluorescent Dyes Pinpoint All Water Leaks


Westbury, New York - Spectroline® fluorescent dyes reveal all leaks in static and circulating water systems, boilers, storage tanks and other high-volume containers. They also are extremely effective in locating leaks in piping, valves, condensers, sprinkler system pumps, seams, welds and fittings.

With this leak detection method, you simply add a small amount of Spectroline WD-801 or WD-802 fluorescent dye into a system and allow it to circulate. Wherever the water escapes, so does the dye, which remains at the site of all leaks. When the system is scanned with a high-intensity ultraviolet lamp, the dye glows brightly to pinpoint the precise location of every leak.

WD-801 dye makes leak sites fluoresce blue and WD-802 dye reveals leaks with a bright green color. The recommended dilution ratio is one pint of dye for every 1,000 gallons of water. These dyes enable inspectors to detect leaks in seams, welds, seals and fittings of equipment before it is put into service.

WD-801 and WD-802 dyes are also ideal for preventive maintenance programs because they remain safely in the system and will expose new leaks whenever the system is inspected with the lamp. Dyes are available in one-pint containers, as well as 1-, 5- and 55-gallon drums.
