  Tracer Dyes: FT175  

Trace Water Flows:

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 (FT175Y:yellow, FT175G:green, FT175B:blue & FT175O:orange, making multiple tests easy. The tracers come in an easy-to-use dispenser, making smaller system leaks such as toilet bowl and radiator leaks easy to find. These tracer dyes are especially suited to detecting leaks in large systems such as industrial cooling and closed loop systems and are are ideally suited for water flow studies. They are unaffected by pH, absorption & photochemical decay. Recommended for water studies or to trace or monitor or analyze water flows, such as power plant discharges, industrial effluents, sewer and septic system flows as well as tracing roof leaks. They can be used in river dredging to check for possible back-seepage, and in canals and contaminated water for detecting underground seepage. The dilute solution is non-irritating, non-toxic and harmless to animal, vegetable and marine life. It is non-corrosive to metals, rubber or plastic. They can be used in either the visible or fluorescent mode. FT175 when diluted in as little as one ounce to 1,000 gallons of water, produces a colorless solution which will be visible only under UV (black) light (400nm) using safety glasses.(UV
L105-400 and Safety Glasses AG-EW-100) When FT175 is diluted one ounce to 100 gallons, it is visible to the naked eye in normal light as well as fluorescent under UV light. For best results the tracers should be
diluted two ounces to 100 gallons. They can be used to detect leaks in any water or water/ glycol, static or circulating system. (ASTM
&  ANSI approved standard covering the use of Tracer Dyes:  ASTM E1003 Standard Test Method for Hydrostatic Leak Testing
