The SafetyBlu™ (SB-450) Blue Light Inspection Kit by Spectroline is a hydraulic system maintenance tool. It can help find hydraulic system leaks as well as detect and prevent injection injuries.
The SB-450 kit comes complete with a portable, high-intensity blue light (450 nm) LED flashlight, smart AC and DC chargers, yellow fluorescence-enhancing glasses (part #UVS-40), a protective rubber bumper (part #125565), and a belt holster (part #127243). All components are packed in a padded carrying case (part #CC-365).
The SafetyBlu kit is specially designed for use with the FluidSafe™ fluorescent additive. When used together they can help pinpoint small fluid leaks in hydraulic system hoses, fittings, seals, and other components. This allows tiny leaks to be repaired before they lead to bigger leaks and system failures. In addition, SafetyBlu can lower anticipated operating costs by reducing hydraulic fluid consumption.
When added to the reservoirs of hydraulic machinery, FluidSafe also aids in the detection and surgical removal of hydraulic fluid in the event of an accidental fluid injection that penetrates the skin. That’s because 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 easier for medical personnel to confirm whether a penetration actually occurred, and if so, to determine the extent of the injury.
The SB-450 LED has a 100,000-hour service life. The lamp is portable and rugged with an anodized aluminum body, which reduces corrosion and stands up to years of heavy use. Powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, it provides 90 minutes of continuous inspection between charges. The charge time is approximately four hours.
The SafetyBlu (SB-450) Blue Light Inspection Kit measures 7½”, weighs 10 ounces, and has an inspection range of 20′. The power requirement is 3.6V, 2000mAHr.
