New Industrial Dye Glows Bright Blue to Detect Leaks


Spectronics Corporation has introduced OIL-GLO™ 40, a versatile, oil-based, fluorescent leak detection dye that is formulated specifically for large industrial systems.

This new dye accurately pinpoints leaks in all synthetic- or petroleum-based fluid systems, including light-colored hydraulic fluid, very dark or intensely blue hydraulic and lubrication fluids, compressor oil, engine oil and gearbox oil.  OIL-GLO 40 contains more active ingredients per ounce than competitive dyes,  so it is extremely cost-effective.

OIL-GLO 40 is easy to use.  Simply add the dye to any oil-based system and allow it to circulate for 5 to 10 minutes.  Wherever there is a leak, the dye escapes with the system oil and remains at the site of all leaks.  

Scan the system with a Spectroline® ultraviolet lamp and locate every fluid leak by its bright blue glow, which stands out from other leak detection dyes. OIL-GLO 40 can remain safely in the system for periodic re-checks — there’s no need to add more dye until the oil is changed.
