The Only Complete Leak Detection Kit That Finds Little Leaks Before They Become Big Problems

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - August 08, 2016) - AMTs don't like leaks. That's because drips can run far from their source. So finding and fixing what's causing those seeps, bubbles or streaks takes a lot of time. That makes even little leaks a big business...and a big headache. Which means fixing leaks is a big part of an AMT's professional life. Spectroline's Aviation Fluid Leak Detection Kit (ALK-365) won't keep aircraft grounded because it's the quickest, most complete, proactive maintenance toolkit for finding little leaks in aviation fuel, lubrication and hydraulic systems before they become big problems.

-The ALK-365 works with all petroleum-based and synthetic-based lubricants and fluids.

The work horse of the kit is its powerful OPTIMAX™ 365 super-high intensity, cordless, rechargeable flashlight. Engineered with ultra-hi-flux LED technology, its beam shines four times brighter than even corded high-intensity UV lamps. But that illuminating power doesn't come at the expense of handling. Weighing less than one pound, the OPTIMAX won't strain, fatigue or weaken arms, wrists or hands. The automatic Electronic Intensity Stabilizer assures consistent performance so the beam strength won't weaken between charges either (90 minutes of continuous inspection time).

With an inspection range of 25 feet (7.6 m) even the smallest of leaks will stand out quickly after the included, Spectroline Aero-Brite universal fluorescent dye is added and circulated through the system (8 oz./237 ml. bottle comes with the kit). When hit with OPTIMAX's bright and penetrating beam, Aero-Brite glows a vivid yellow/green at the exact source of the leak. Since its super-concentrated to shine so brightly, less dye is used per inspection.

-Aero-Brite meets Mil Spec MIL-PRF-81298E, Type III for aircraft fuel systems.

-Also available: SP-8609-0100 (NSN: 6820-01-386-8609) in a 1 gallon (3.8 L) container.

The kit also includes an 8 oz. (237 ml.) bottle of GLO-AWAY™ dye cleaner, smart AC and DC chargers (AC charger available in 120V, 230V, 240V or 100V), rubber lamp head protector, a useful belt holster and UV-absorbing glasses. Everything comes packed in a lightweight, convenient, padded and durable carrying case for easy stowing and retrieval.

The best thing about Spectroline dyes is because they are formulated to work with their host fluids...they will never degrade the fluid properties or damage any of the system components of aircrafts. That means there is no need to waste time or money flushing them away. So they are the perfect diagnostic tool to check for leaks during static and even inflight testing. Because they can safely stay in systems…the ALK-365 Kit and Spectroline dyes will quickly become the most cost-effective, proactive maintenance tools for finding future leaks too.
