More About this Item

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. Use blue dye to brighten murky ponds and other landscaped waters.

Minimum detectable concentration of all dyes in clear water is 1 ppm. Available in tablets, liquid, or powder. Quick dissolving tablets are easy to handling 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 fluoremetric dye tests. Powder is well-suited for large applications where liquid is undesirable such a cooling towers, lakes, rivers, and ponds, or power plant piping.

      A:

      This is not a fluorescent dye. The blue dye is used to brighten murky ponds and other landscaped waters.
      The Red tracer dye, like part number 00298-16, contains Rhodamine WT. Rhodamine WT is a highly fluorescent material with the unique ability to absorb green light and emit red light. So, it shows up red, not green.
      The fluorescent yellow/green dye, like part number 00298-17, contains fluorescein which shows green/yellow under black light. The orange dye, like 00298-19, contains xanthene and turns bright yellow under UV light.

  • Q:

    Is this dye staining? We are trouble shooting an application that will drip on concrete. Will this stain the concrete?

      A:

      If your concrete is not sealed this dye (though aqueous) may get into the open pores/cracks of concrete and stain it.
