General Description

DYE SPEC GREEN TRACER DYE is designed for use in pipeline hydro-test and flooding applications. In addition, DYE SPEC GREEN TRACER DYE is ideal for sewer line tracing and a myriad of leak detection studies such as storage tanks, cooling towers and to gauge the infiltration of soil with waste waters from industrial sources. DYE SPEC GREEN TRACER DYE is designed to provide maximum solubility in fresh or salt water. These dyes can be detected by the eye in open lakes or seawater as a marker buoy in concentrations of one part per million. In actual practice, it is suggested that tracings start with ten parts per million liquid, so to allow for dilution factors, wave action, etc. DYE SPEC GREEN TRACER DYE in the liquid form is dark red/orange. When contacted with water and dispersed the water becomes fluorescence yellow in hue with a distinctive characteristic green fluorescence. Detection via black light is between 489 and 490 nanometers.

 

Application

DYE SPEC GREEN TRACER DYE , when used in diving operations, can be pumped into spool pieces, pipelines, or tanks, prior to insertion sub sea. The liquid dye will disperse once water fills the item being tested. For surface applications, the liquid can be placed into equipment being tested for leaks. The immediate dispersion time helps reduce time spent in timing flowing and circulation applications. For small applications, DYE SPEC TRACER DYE STICKS may be more efficient.
