  • Increases asset life
  • Reduces maintenance
  • Identify potential system variability

Leak detection is majorly used in below areas:

  • Boiler and boiler water system
  • Cooling tower system
  • Air-conditioning and refrigeration system
  • Waste water treatment and municipal sewage system

Tracers

Water treatment chemicals are used in cooling tower system to inhibit scale and corrosion. Scaling and corrosion reduces the efficiency of cooling and results in unexpected breakdowns. While using the water treatment chemicals in cooling tower system the dosage level of chemical plays an important role. Hence to monitor the dosage level of water treatment chemicals in water treatment systems, fluorescent tracer based water treatment chemicals are in demand. Neelikon provides high quality products suitable for water tracer application.

Our products are also used as tracers in cut flower treatment products. Cut flower treatment products are used to prolong the life of cut flowers. Due to this treatment cut flowers remains fresh in saleable condition, though it takes time after cutting from the farm till the delivery to customer. The dosage level of cut flower treatment products is monitored by using tracer.

In agricultural research to monitor the spray deposition on crops and its movement tracer material is used. Ideally, any tracer material used is highly soluble and stable in the solution being sprayed, easily recoverable from both artificial and plant samples, and not easily or quickly degraded in sunlight. Our products are suitable for this application.

Pond dyes

In smaller lakes and ponds, the excessive growth of weeds makes the water ugly and foul-smelling. The growth of undesired aquatic plants such as weeds and algae in the pond, is controlled by adding a pond dyes to the water in the vicinity of the undesired plant growth. The dye is of a Colour such that it absorbs a substantial portion of the light at wave lengths normally used by the plants in photosynthesis, so that growth of the plants is stopped or arrested.

It is common to see dyed water in public and recreational establishments, such as golf courses, recreation parks, ornamental ponds and decorative fountains. Aquatic dyes add blue or blue-green Colour to the water to reduce sunlight penetration. When used as a shade, dyes help to reduce growth by blocking photosynthesis.

Laser dyes

The laser dyes find use in many scientific, industrial, medical, and military applications, ranging from spectroscopy to potential countermeasure devices.

Applications of laser dyes include separation of isotopes of important radioactive elements such as Uranium. Uranium is used as fuel in the nuclear power reactors to generate electricity

The medical applications of laser dyes include skin treatments, including port-wine stain and tattoo removal, diagnostic measurements, lithotripsy, activation of photosensitive drugs for photodynamic therapy, etc.

Dyes for non- destructive testing applications

Non-destructive testing (NDT) is the process of inspecting, testing, or evaluating materials, components or assemblies for discontinuities, or differences in characteristics without destroying the serviceability of the part or system. Flaws and cracks can play havoc with the performance of structures and for improving the performance, the timely detection of these defects is very much necessary. By using non-destructive testing methods, the structures can be evaluated to a greater degree of accuracy, without damaging them. These methods can be used as quality control measures at the time of construction of structures as well as tool for detection of defect during the service.

Various methods are used for Non-Destructive Testing.

Our products are used in two NDT Test methods
(a) Dye penetrant inspection
(b) Magnetic particle inspection
