FluidSafe fluorescent additive saves money by detecting hydraulic fluid leaks early

06 March, 2015

FluidSafe fluorescent additive from Alerton International quickly detects hydraulic leaks in fluid power system hoses, fittings, seals and other components. This saves money by reducing operating costs. Undetected hydraulic fluid leaks cost the mining industry untold amounts of money. This includes the costs of fluid replacement, problematic system operation, equipment breakdown, fines for environmental contamination, and the possibility of fluid injection injuries to personnel. It has been estimated that in North America alone, over 100 million gallons (380 million litres) of hydraulic fluid could be saved every year if leakage was eliminated. FluidSafe is ideal for preventive maintenance. When used in combination with a SafetyBlu blue light inspection kit or blue lens filter specially designed to fit over a variety of mining lamps, it can easily detect fluid leaks that are usually very hard to find. The exact source of even extremely small leaks is pinpointed by its bright green fluorescent glow. Users have reported a 5% to 7% savings in hydraulic fluid consumption. At $5 per gallon ($1.30 per litre) for hydraulic fluid, these savings are equivalent to $0.25 to $0.35 per gallon (3.8 L) ─ vastly surpassing the cost of FluidSafe. FluidSafe is available in two specially formulated blends to work with both oil-based hydraulic fluids and oil-in-water emulsion hydraulic fluids. www.alertoninternational.com.
