Alerton International has introduced the SafetyBlu SB-450 blue light inspection kit, featuring a portable, high-intensity blue-light LED flashlight. Used in conjunction with FluidSafe fluorescent additive, the SB-450 kit locates hydraulic fluid leaks early on. This, according to the company, can help prevent injection injuries to mine workers, and also reduces fluid consumption by 5% to 7% annually. When added to the reservoirs of hydraulic machinery, FluidSafe aids in the detection and medical removal of hydraulic fluid in the event of an accidental fluid injection that penetrates the skin. When viewed under the SafetyBlu lamp’s high-intensity blue light, the additive’s bright green fluorescent glow pinpoints the injection track quickly and accurately. This makes it easy for medical personnel to confirm whether a penetration actually occurred, and if so, to precisely determine the extent of the injury. The SafetyBlu flashlight is also claimed to be very effective in detecting fluid leaks in hydraulic system hoses, fittings, seals and other components. This allows small leaks to be repaired before they lead to catastrophic failures. The lamp features a rugged, anodized aluminum body and is powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery providing 90 minutes of continuous inspection between charges. The LED is rated at a 100,000-hour service life. In addition to the flashlight, the kit comes complete with smart AC and DC chargers, yellow fluorescence-enhancing glasses and a belt holster. All components are packed in a padded carrying case.
