UV-A blacklight fluorescent inspection
Our UV blacklight lamps are used by thousands of organisations worldwide for detection, validation and quality control in industrial, medical, scientific and public service applications.
We are widely recognised as world leaders in UV blacklight fluorescent inspection lamps.
…using UV fluorescent magnetic particle or dye penetrant processes, e.g. highlighting defects in safety critical aerospace and automotive components.
…laboratory investigations, unearthing vital evidence at crime scenes and police photography. UV reveals bodily fluids, finger prints, foot prints and subcutaneous bruising on the body.
…enabling revelation of imperfections and evidence of restoration to paintings, books and ceramics. Also detection of forgeries, mould and print enhancement.
…for checking effectiveness of cleaning procedures and identification of areas either missed or not cleaned properly. Great for audits, evaluating different cleaning products and training staff.
…using UV fluorescent additives mixed with water, oils, fuels, coolants and refridgerants for revealing leaks on surfaces, pipework, joints and coils.
…detection of hydrocarbons, such as oil and grease on materials and equipment used in oxygen enriched environments, e.g. industrial gases, submarines and diving gear.
…inspection of clear conformal coatings incorporating UV blue tracer on PCBs to check for uniform coverage.
…for quality control of free range eggs to detect evidence of washing or wiping and highlighting spoilage by bacteria and mould.
…by revelation or verification of security markings on items such as currency, credit cards and security documents.
…on property and people by police is linking valuable items to owners and criminals to crime scenes. Invisible until revealed under UV as a green/yellow glow.
…detection of particlate microcontamination in cleanrooms; inspection of surfaces prior to spray coating, examination of LCD screens and evaluation of medical textiles.
…early stage detection is essential for vets. UV inspection of infected animals reveals a yellow/green glow at the base of hairs, indicating fungal spores.
…identification of fibre mixes and woven defects; contamination of raw materials; oil stains on carpets and particulates in medical non-wovens.
…using UV reactive paints in combination with UV blacklighting. Special effects include single and dual image, 3D, invisible/UV revealing and Trompe-l'oeil.
…identification of paper mixes and contamination. Also quality control of invisible/UV revealing markings printed on currency and security papers.
…carers and therapists use UV in interactive multi sensory rooms in hospitals and schools to provide gentle stimulation and relaxation for people with sensory and learning disabilities.
…solder flux contamination, e.g. rosin can cause electronic circuit failure and must be removed by cleaning. UV inspection reveals any residue remaining.
…in aqueuos solution is used for testing wash sequence coverage of pharmaceutical containment isolators to guarantee acceptable levels of cleaning.
