Most UV inspection lights are lightweight units that provide four to six hours of use per charge. They serve lots of purposes, each of which is fairly specific to several different forms of work and labor. If you’re involved in construction, or are working on a project in an urban environment, chances are that at some point you’re going to need the use of one. Still not convinced? Let’s cover a few of the many ways a UV light will come in handy.
One Tool, Multiple Uses
If you’re in the process of renovating an apartment complex, or any other similar type of building, a UV light can detect rodent contamination by searching out fluorescent rodent urine. Also, rodent hair glows blue and is easily identified on sacks or intermixed with food grains. This is also helpful if you work as a food inspector.
The lights are also useful when sorting out forgeries of bank notes, standard checks and travellers’ checks. That’s because forgeries are printed on inferior bleached paper or photocopied. The forgeries will glow under UV light and bona fide checks will be completely dull. If you’re dealing with financial transactions on a consistent basis, the UV light is a requirement.
A Good Look At What The Human Eye May Miss
Also, most newer credit cards have an invisible imprint on the front. As I’m sure you’ve already guess, if there’s no imprint, then the card is a forgery. With the help of a UV light, you can also detect alterations made to legal documents, such as careful erasure or ink eradication and altering paper textures. When dealing with paper currency, each has it’s own unique embedded stripe which show fluoresce under ultraviolet light as follows: $5 glows blue, $10 glows orange, $20 glows green, $50 glows yellow, and $100 glows red. The $1.00 bill has no stripe.
Really, it doesn’t matter what industry you’re working in- a UV light has a million different functions and uses, and with one in your work setting, you’ll be sure to always be prepared. Considering that most brands are both durable and highly affordable, you really don’t have a reason to skip on purchasing one. Hop on the internet, and get to it!
