Oil Leak Detection


Nova makes it easy to detect leaks from oil systems using a UV flashlight and a fluorescent dye. Simply add the dye to the system and circulate then inspect with UV flashlight. Novaflour dyes will fluoresce a bright yellow or green color. The dye can remain in the system indefinitely and does not affect system components or performance.

Alternatively, use one of our visible dyes to visually spot the leak.
