GLO-STICK(R) Leak Detection Kit Key to Preventive Maintenance of AC&R Systems

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - July 06, 2016) - Most AC&R leaks are discovered only after complaints, spoilage or production difficulties. 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 -- before they require major repairs.

The kit's work horse is the OPTIMAX™ 400 leak detection flashlight. Its high-output, LED violet light 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:

  • 4 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

This one single kit treats up to 50 lbs. (22.7 kg) of refrigerant, 4 gallons (15 L) of lubricant, or 24 tons of cooling. Everything comes packed in a convenient and durable carrying case for easy transport, retrieval and storage.

The best thing about Spectroline dyes is that you don't need to waste time or money flushing them away. Because they can safely stay in the system, Spectroline dyes become your most cost-effective method for finding future leaks too.
