Product Description

UV Yellow Green Tracer Tablets Product Description:
Risk Reactor Inc's DFTB-C8 Visible Fluorescent Yellow-Green tracer products are specially formulated versions of Xanthene dye, certified by International to ANSI/Standard 60 for use in drinking water. This dye is the traditional fluorescent water tracing and leak detection material and has been used for labeling studies from the beginning of the century. It may be detected visually, by UV light and by appropriate fluoremetric equipment. Today, it is most often used visually. This dye has been used by the military to mark downed pilots for search and rescue operations over large water bodies. Visually the dye appears yellow-green, depending on its concentration and under UV light as lime green. Based on biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) studies, the dye is biodegradable with 65% of the available oxygen consumed in 7 days. The dye is resistant to absorption on most suspended matter in fresh and salt water. However, compared to Risk Reactor Inc's Visible Red products it is significantly less resistant to degradation by sunlight and when used in fluoremetry, stands out much less clearly against background fluorescence. As always the suitability of these products for any specific application should be evaluated by a qualified hydrologist or other industry professional.

Available In:
4, 50, 100, 200 and 2000 tablet containers. Larger units are available upon request.

How to Use:
How Fluorescent Dye Tracing Products Work: The "visual" aspect of our dye products refers to normal reflection of light as color. The "fluorescent" aspect refers to special properties of some chemicals to absorb certain wavelengths and then emit, rather than reflect, light in response. The emission can be seen by using a "black" ultraviolet light or precisely measured with a fluorometer. The reflected and emitted light have different wavelengths and are, therefore, not the same color.

The maximum Absorbance/Emission Wavelengths of Our Products are:

Product Color: Red

Absorption Emission: 550 nm 588 nm  

What Does PPB Mean? Most of our products contain fluorescent dyes, which can be detected visually, or with the use of ultraviolet light or fluorometer. As used in Risk Reactor literature, "ppb" refers to one part of active dye per billion parts of water. Using a fluorometer, the active dye can often be detected at levels less than one ppb. All data is presented as reference points only and should not be regarded as a recommendation. Users should make their own determination of appropriate dilution levels in any specific situation, which will vary with the nature, condition, and use of the water or liquid and the specific evaluation to be performed.

Examples of Specific Projects: Test sewer lines for infiltration. Locates sewer lines. Check for illegal connections. Prove septic bypasses. Identify indirect cross-connections. Check drain pipes, downspouts, and gutters to assure drainage into proper channels. Use in inspection service for certification and reinspection documentation. Analyze travel times. Toilet leak detection kits are frequently used by plumbers, municipalities and utilities use them as part of public relations and water conservation programs. Detect leaks in closed systems and cooling systems of steel manufacturers. Study infiltration and industrial water piping systems. Trace acid coming though cooling systems. Check pump systems flow in fleet trucks, and for preventative maintenance programs. Detect sewer leaks into ponds, lagoons, and reservoir lines. Check circulation through sludge beds and to measure discharge flow from water tanks. Illustrate the hydraulic characteristics of streams and other water bodies. Identify and differentiate batches of slurry before the brick firing process. Measure the speed and longevity of material passing through a system (i.e. retention time studies).
