GLO-STICK® Leak Detection Kit Finds All Leaks in Small to Medium Sized AC&R Systems

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - February 17, 2016) -  Leaks in air conditioning and refrigeration systems cost the industry millions of dollars every year. Most are discovered only after a loss of cooling leads to discomfort, spoilage or production difficulties. Spectronics Corporation manufactures a variety of kits to detect even the most elusive refrigerant leaks.

The Spectroline® OPK-40GS/E GLO-STICK® Kit contains everything needed to locate all AC&R leaks in small to medium sized systems -- including high-pressure R-410A systems. Technicians will appreciate the convenience of the single-dose fluorescent dye capsules, which allow adding refrigerant and fluorescent dye in one simple step.

The anchor of the HVAC/R kit is the OPTIMAX™ 400 leak detection flashlight. Its high-output violet light LED enables dyes to fluoresce more brightly and with greater contrast compared to conventional blue light lamps. The OPTIMAX 400 has power equal to high-intensity 150-watt lamps, and an inspection range of 25 feet (7.6 m) or more.

The OPK-40GS/E Complete GLO-STICK kit also includes:

  • Four universal/POE GLO-STICK® dye capsules
  • Bleed valve
  • Purge capsule
  • Hose/coupler with check valve, low-loss and purge fittings
  • 8 oz (237 ml) spray bottle GLO-AWAY™ dye cleaner
  • Fluorescence-enhancing glasses

All components are packed in a rugged carrying case. The kit treats up to 50 lbs (22.7 kg) of refrigerant, 4 gallons (15 L) of lubricant, or 24 tons of cooling.

Headquartered in Westbury, New York, Spectronics Corporation invented fluorescent leak detection in 1955, and remains the world's leading manufacturer of ultraviolet equipment and fluorescent dyes.
