Marine Leak Detection Kit Finds Leaks Quickly and Accurately in Watercraft

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - May 11, 2016) - Left undetected, watercraft leaks can disrupt operation and cause equipment breakdown and environmental pollution. Spectroline's Marine Leak Detection Kit (OPK-400M) is specially designed to easily and efficiently locate fuel, oil and hydraulic leaks in small to medium sized marine craft. Packaged with two distinctly colored fluorescent dyes, it differentiates between multiple leaking fluid systems.

Finding leaks is a simple, hassle-free procedure. Simply add the fluorescent dye to the fluid system and let it circulate. Scan the system with a Spectroline® leak detection flashlight to pinpoint even the most elusive leaks. At the heart of the OPK-400M kit is the OPTIMAX 400 violet light leak detection flashlight -- a high-intensity LED compact lamp that gets into cramped areas that are inaccessible to larger lamps.

Also included in the marine kit are a 1 oz (30 ml) bottle of OIL-GLO® 44 and a 1 oz (30 ml) bottle of OIL-GLO® 50 fluorescent oil dye. Both are compatible with petroleum- or synthetic-based fluid systems and treat up to 8 gallons (30.3 L) of fluid. When a leaking system is scanned with the OPTIMAX 400, OIL-GLO 44 will glow yellow/green, while OIL-GLO 50 will glow red.

Rounding out the kit is an 8 oz (237 ml) spray bottle of GLO-AWAY™ dye cleaner, dye treatment tags and fluorescence-enhancing glasses. All components are packed in a rugged carrying case.
