New Full-Spectrum Fluorescent Dye Makes It Easy to Find Leaks in Large Industrial Equipment

OIL-GLO 44, a patented, fluorescent leak detection dye It is actually a unique “full-spectrum” blend of two different fluorescent dyes — one fluoresces best under ultraviolet light and the other under blue light.

As a result, regardless of the type of inspection lamp used, OIL-GLO 44 will glow brightly to reveal even the smallest and most elusive leaks. This new dye pinpoints leaks in all oil-circulating systems.

It quickly detects leaks in hydraulic systems, air compressors, cylinders, engines, gearboxes, offset printing presses, milling and injection molding machines, oil coolers, and much more. OIL-GLO 44 contains over twice the amount of fluorescence power per ounce as other dyes on the market, so it is extremely cost-effective.

Fluorescent leak detection works like clockwork. Simply add OIL-GLO 44 dye to any oil-based system and allow it to circulate. Wherever there is a leak, the dye escapes with the oil and remains at the site of all leaks. When the system is scanned with a high-intensity ultraviolet or blue light lamp, the dye glows bright yellow-green. OIL-GLO 44 remains safely in the system until the oil is changed, so regular inspections will detect any future leaks before they can damage the equipment.
