Determine water flow in closed circuits or open channels
- Biodegradable and nontoxic
Dyes diffuse rapidly in water, producing a vivid, easy-to-see color. Excellent for identifying diffusion and dispersion patterns, rates of flow, discharge locations, seepage areas, sea marking, and more. Orange (xanthene) dye appears as bright yellow under ultraviolet light. Minimum detectable concentration of all dyes in clear water is 1 ppm.
Tracers are available in tablets, liquid, or powder form. Quick-dissolving tablets are easy to handle with less mess than other forms. They are perfect for applications such as storm lines, cooling and plumbing systems, and sewer lines. Choose liquid for applications such as metered input, flow/dilution/disperation rate assessment, septic inspections, or fluorometric dye tests. Powdered form is well-suited for large applications where liquid is undes
