A small amount of Spectroline Oil-Glo 22 dye added to a hydraulic system and allowed to circulate for several minutes will reveal any leaks in that system. Wherever there is a leak, the dye escapes with the oil. When the system is scanned with a high-intensity Spectroline ultraviolet or UV/blue light lamp, the dye glows bright yellow, clearly revealing each and every leak. After the leaks have been repaired, scanning the system again with the light will indicate whether the leaks were fixed properly. The dye remains safely in the system until the oil is changed.
