Telescopic, Violet Light Lamp Gets Into Cramped AC&R Systems

on Thu, 08/13/2015 - 11:09

Spectronics Corporation, the world’s premier manufacturer of ultraviolet lamps and fluorescent dyes, has introduced the new Spectroline®VioMAX Plus (P/N VMP-400CS) telescopic, violet light leak detection lamp. This “mini” lamp finds AC&R leaks in tight, cramped areas not accessible to larger, bulkier lamps.

The high-output 400 nm violet light LED offers optimal fluorescent response and contrast and works with all universal /POE dyes. Using a VioMAX Plus lamp makes locating leaks in an AC&R system a simple procedure. Add a small amount of fluorescent dye to the system and let it circulate.

Super-Bright Fluorescent Dyes Pinpoint All Water Leaks

on Tue, 08/11/2015 - 13:52

Plant maintenance inspectors will appreciate all the benefits of Spectroline®WATER-GLO® fluorescent leak detection dyes. These super-bright dyes reveal all leaks in static and circulating water systems, boilers, storage tanks and other high-volume containers. They also locate leaks in piping, valves, condensers, sprinkler system pumps, seams, welds and fittings.

Simply add a small amount of WATER-GLO® 801 or WATER-GLO® 802 fluorescent water dye into a system and allow it to circulate. Wherever the water escapes, so does the dye, which remains at the site of all leaks.
