FLUIDSAFE WB fluorescent dye additive aids in the quick and accurate detection of high-pressure fluid injection injuries on site. This helps pinpoint the exact location of hydraulic fluid under the skin, assisting in decreasing theamount of cases requiring surgery and also limiting the amount of soft tissue dissection required during surgery.

When viewed under high intensity blue light (450nm), the FLUIDSAFE™ WB fluorescent green glow can be seen under the skin, enabling quick detection of an oil injection injury on site. The green fluorescent response will remain visible in the tissue for at least 24 hours after the injection, with no ill effects to the human body.


Additionally, the fluorescent green glow of the FLUIDSAFE WB additive can aid in the detection of fatigue in hydraulic hoses, fittings, seals and other components that have degenerated to the point where their safety and integrity have been compromised. When used in combination with the high-intensity blue light LED lamp (available as part of the inspection kit) or blue lens filter specially designed to fit over a variety of mining lamps, leaks that are hard to find under normal circumstances can be quickly and easily detected. FLUIDSAFE WB is ideal for preventive maintenance programs through reduction in equipment downtime, and loss of hydraulic fluid.


FLUIDSAFE WB is available in Australia only.

Key Benefits

  • Readily water soluble
  • Additive glows a highly visible green color when viewed using a blue light source — on the skin surface, in soft tissue underneath human skin, and at leak sites on hoses, fittings, seals and other components
  • Helps prevent accidental fluid injections by pinpointing small leaks before they lead to catastrophic failures
  • Has no adverse effect on the physical properties of hydraulic fluid
  • Used by major OEMs
