Universal Fluorescent Dye Locates Fuel, Lubrication and Hydraulic Leaks in Aviation Systems

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - June 06, 2016) - When incorporated into daily maintenance, leak detection dyes can save money, prevent equipment breakdown, reduce labor costs and increase the efficiency of flight operation. Spectrolines' AD-8609 Aero-Brite™ Universal Fluorescent Leak Detection Dye pinpoints the exact source of all fuel, lubrication and hydraulic leaks in aviation systems.

Adding the dye is a simple procedure. Pour a small amount of the super-concentrated dye into the aircraft fluid system and let it circulate. The dye/fluid mixture will accumulate at even the smallest leak sites. Scan the area with a Spectroline® high-intensity UV leak detection lamp and a bright yellow/green glow will show the precise location of every leak.

Aero-Brite dye is specially formulated to work with any petroleum and synthetic-based host fluid and meets Mil Spec MIL-PRF-81298E, Type III, Yellow/Green Fluorescent for aircraft fuel systems. It will not damage the fluid's properties or any of the system's components. Aero-Brite™ allows inspection of the entire system under most operating conditions, and is ideal for both in-flight and static testing.

Aero-Brite™ is available in 8 oz (237 ml), 16 oz (473 ml) and 32 oz (946 ml) bottles, and 1 gallon (3.8 L) containers.
