Universal Fluorescent Leak Detection Dye is Compatible with All Refrigerants!
Press release date: July 23, 2003
Westbury, New York - HVAC/R technicians no longer have to waste valuable time trying to match a fluorescent leak detection dye with specific refrigerants or lubricants in air-conditioning and refrigeration systems. Solvent-free AR-GLO/E® universal fluorescent dye can be used with any refrigerant, and with mineral oil, polyol ester and alkyl benzene lubricants.
There are several ways to add AR-GLO/E dye to AC&R systems. The EZ-Ject(TM) multi-dose dye injector or single-dose GLO-STICK® capsules are used for small to medium size AC&R systems. The BigEZ(TM) multi-dose dye injector is designed for medium to large AC&R systems. For large systems, such as supermarkets and refrigerated warehouses, the Mist Infuser(TM) pump injector is recommended.
Fluorescent leak detection is fast and foolproof. Simply add AR-GLO/E dye to the system and allow it to circulate with the refrigerant and oil. Wherever there is a leak, the refrigerant and dye will escape. The refrigerant evaporates, but the dye remains at the site of every leak. When the system is scanned with a high-intensity Spectroline® ultraviolet or UV/blue light lamp, the dye glows brightly to pinpoint the precise location of all leaks. The dye remains safely in the system for future inspections.
