Cliplight's New Flash(TM) Leak Detection Kits: A New Class of 'No Mess' Dye Tools for HVACR

Three professional kits offer a variety of pricing and UV light functions along with three cans of Flash dye and a reusable charging hose.

Cliplight Mfg., Toronto, a leading HVAC/R aftermarket products manufacturer, has introduced three Flash(TM) professional refrigeration system leak detection kits that include three cans of Flash "no mess" dye, a reusable charging hose, an ultraviolet (UV) detector light and a carrying case.

All kits include Flash, Cliplight's patented new class of UV leak detection dye packaged in "no mess" vacuum-packed, one-time use cans that each treat up to one five-ton unit or 64-ounces (1.8-liter) of system oil. Unlike all other dyes on the market, Flash does not use an injector or polyolester (POE) oil as a carrier. Instead, it uses Cliplight's own Dry R(TM) drying agent combined with the charging hose's 29/1,000ths orifice to instantaneously mist the "industry's fastest dye" into the system, keep it stable and prevent crystallization.

The kits vary by UV fluorescing light function and illuminating range:

o Dual Pro 82 Kit-uses the Cool Dual UV/White LED Light that functions both as a close range UV dye detector and a conventional flashlight in an aluminum casing with an anti-drop wrist strap. The light includes 21 UV LEDs, 20 white LEDs and 4-AAA batteries.

o Mini Pro 84-uses Cliplight's renowned Vector 4 UV LED Light with patented focal lens technology for inspections up to 15 feet. The Vector 4 has a 4-hour continuous use life and a 9V battery internal energy management system ensuring full UV output throughout the battery life with an intermittent on/off switch and orange 10-minute low battery warning light. It also includes an anti-drop wrist strap and 9V battery.

o Maxi Pro 87-uses Cliplight's renowned Vector 7 UV LED Light that focuses 7 LED beams into one powerful light source extending up to 20 feet. The cordless Vector 7 is rechargeable with a 5-hour continuous use life and NiMH, 1,800-Ah battery that has no charging memory precautions. The light includes both an AC/DC charger and low battery indicator.

Other leak detection features of the kits include:

o Instead of inventorying multiple dyes to comply with POE, PAG, mineral oil and other oil compatibilities, Flash is a universal dye compatible with all refrigerants and oils.

o No contaminating moisture is introduced to the system because Dry R is used as a dye carrier and stabilizer instead of POE oil.

o No messy clean-up, hand contact, storage or injectors are needed; system refrigerant fills the can, mixes with the Flash and instantaneously distributes it throughout the system.

o Reusable charging hose is cleaned automatically for the next application from solvency of system refrigerant exiting the Flash can.

o Charging hose's 29/1,000ths-inch throttling orifice guarantees no dye liquid will ever reach the suction line of the compressor.

o No clumsy UV enhancement eyewear is needed because all kits use professional UV leak detection lights.

o All kits include service stickers for quick ID on future servicing.

o Same reliable customer service support from the company that developed the Super Seal family of vacuum-packed AC/R sealants for the HVAC/R industry and now has over 1 million applications.
