Improving worker safety and equipment maintenance
FluidSafe™ hydraulic fluid additive is a revolutionary product (U.S. and foreign patents pending) that was developed within the mining industry to improve worker safety and reduce operating costs. It is specially designed to aid in the detection and surgical removal of hydraulic fluid in the event of accidental high-pressure fluid injection under the skin.
identifying accidental fluid injection
When viewed under high-intensity blue light (450 nm), FluidSafe’s bright green fluorescent glow can be seen under the skin, enabling the quick detection of an injection injury on site. This not only allows triage of cases not requiring surgery, but also helps pinpoint the exact location of hydraulic fluid under the skin, assisting in limiting soft tissue dissection required during surgery. The green fluorescent response will remain visible in the tissue for at least 24 hours, with no ill effects to the human body.
In the case of an actual fluid injection, FluidSafe additive will enable the detection of fluid under the skin through its bright fluorescent glow under blue light. The fluorescent response will remain visible for at least 24 hours after the injection. This not only allows for faster and easier triage of cases not requiring surgery, but has been proven to assist in pinpointing the exact location of the fluid to limit the degree of soft tissue dissection required when surgery is necessary.
Detecting Hydraulic Fluid Leaks
Another benefit of FluidSafe is that it helps detect leaks in fluid power system hoses, fittings, seals and other components. This decreases the consumption of hydraulic fluid, reduces the potential for equipment breakdowns, minimizes environmental damage, and helps prevent fluid release incidents. As a result, FluidSafe is ideal for preventive maintenance programs.
