Cuts detection time by 90%
Using the specially formulated fluoroescent powder and ultraviolet black light, the system quickly and efficiently pinpoints leaks in bags, seams and welds,
Easy to use
Introduce the powder into the dirty system, and inspect all bags with ultraviolet light. Large areas can be inspected from single position without need of ladder.
Safe and Dependable
Foolproof, non-Toxic and simple to use. Contrasting colours can be used for retesting after repairs.
- Before emission tests to ensure that collector is at highest filtering efficiency.
- Re test after replacing bags or repairing seals to ensure that all leaks were repaired.
- Inspect system regularly to prevent major leaks.

FilterTex Media Tracer Compound Usage Formula
To determine the quantity of tracer compound needed to run one FTM Fluoro Powder test, simply follow the formula below:
Diameter in mm (A) x 3.142 x length in meters (B) x number of filter bags (C) ÷ 1000 = square meters of cloth area (D).
Since 1 kg of FTM Fluoro Powder per 200M² of filter cloth is required, then (D) ÷ 200 = number of kg’s required for test.
If the M² of filter cloth per compartment of baghouse is already known, simply divide by 200 to obtain the number of kgs of FTM Fluoro Powder to use.
Instructions for Use
Above: Flouro Power Showing dust leaks from around venturi
Above: Close up of Flouro Power dust leaks
Locate an inlet port in the dirty air stream to the bag house (on negative side of fan) just before the baghouse inlet. The port should be at least 3” in diameter.
Turn off the bag cleaning mechanism to leave a dust cake on the bag to give a high pressure differential between the clean and dirty side of the bag. This will encourage tracer material to flow through any holes. Start the fan and introduce 1kg of tracer compound per 200M² of filter cloth. On positive pressure systems inject before the fan. Allow the fan to run five additional minutes. DO NOT operate the cleaning mechanism during or after injection of the tracer compound.
Shut the fan off and inspect using the FTM Leak Detector UV Light Kit. For pulse type units, inspection requires opening the top door and shining the light over the clean air plenum. For shaker or reverse air units inspection takes place from the inside starting with the lower level and concentrating the light around the thimble sheet.
