A dye, usually red or fluorescent, which
when added to a fluid (water, oil etc) will visually show the
path the fluid is traveling and therefore reveal a leak if there is
ANSI approved standard covering the use of
ASTM E1003 Standard Test
Method for Hydrostatic Leak Testing
Water Additive (Red)
This tracer is a concentrated (immediately miscible) liquid dye,
operating in the visible mode - no special equipment needed to
see results. Developed for water systems study, this tracer is ideal for leak
testing large systems or pipelines. Biodegradable - to be diluted four ounces per
gallons. (ASTM 18.104.22.168 & ASTM 22.214.171.124 Visibility Enhancers).
Available in 4 oz, gallon, 5-gallon and 55-gallon packages.
FT175 Water Additives (Fluorescent)
These concentrated leak tracer dyes are biodegradable,
non-toxic and immediately miscible in water.
FT175 tracers come in four fluorescent colors (yellow, green,
blue & orange), making multiple tests easy. Developed
for water systems study, these tracers are ideal for leak
testing large systems or pipelines. (ASTM 126.96.36.199 & ASTM 188.8.131.52 Visibility Enhancers).
Available in 8 oz and gallon packages. More information
FA-1A Water Additive (Fluorescent)
This concentrated liquid tracer contains corrosion inhibitors,
surface tension reducers and water soluable powders which dry on
the outside of a leak developing the exact point of leakage long
after the water evaporates.
The concentrate should be diluted 1 part concentrate to between
25 to 50 parts water. It is chealated to perform in
hard water. (ASTM 11.3.4)
Available in 4 oz, gallon and 55-gallon packages.
FAO-109 Oil Additive
This highly fluorescent concentrate can be added to oil systems
in the ratio of 1 part to 50 parts. It is invisible in ordinary
light but fluoresces strong yellow under
illumination. FAO-109 is used to pinpoint leaks in hydraulic
lines, engine crankcases and shock absorbers. (ASTM 11.3.3)
Avalable in 8oz, gallon, 5-gallon and 55-gallon packages.
||F-trace Water Additive
This hydro tracer is available as a
concentrate which should be diluted 1 part to 99 parts water. Originally
developed to leak test new fuel tanks, it is a biodegradable, highly
fluorescent, low surface tension vehicle, which produces excellent
results. It is not inhibited to prevent rust on carbon steel. It has a low sulphur and halogen content for use on stainless, nickel and magnesium
steels as well as on aluminum and most plastics. A black light, AGC Part
L-101 will be required to see most indications. (ASTM 9.3.4)
Available in gallon, 5-gallon and 55-gallon packages.
RD-58 Fuel Additive (Red)
This concentrated additive mixes with all hydrocarbons and many other fluids.
It is particularly useful for checking leaks near hot sections where
the high temperature prevents the fuel from leaving a wet spot. When
the dyed fuel evaporates, a residue is left as an identifiable leak
indication. RD-58 is recommended for non-aircraft purposes.
Recommended dilution: 2 ounces per 100 US Gallons. Available in
2 oz, 8oz, pint (16oz), gallon, 5-gallon and 55-gallon packages.
