Spectronics Corp.’s Tracer Products division has introduced the Tracerline Vio-Blu, a cordless dual-head LED flashlight for locating automotive system leaks.
The Vio-Blu features a high-output true UV LED at one end and a super-bright blue light LED at the other. As a result, it provides optimal fluorescent response and contrast, regardless of the type of dye. This ensures that all leaks glow brilliantly, according to the company.
The true UV LED fluoresces all Tracerline universal/ester and PAG A/C dyes, as well as TP-3400, TP-3405, TP-3900 and TP-3940 fluid dyes. Leaks can be seen even without using the yellow glasses provided. The blue light LED works with all oil-based dyes, including difficult-to-fluoresce yellow dyes.
With an inspection range of 25 feet (7.6 m) or more, the lamp allows for easy access into tight, cramped areas. The Vio-Blu has a service life of 100,000 hours for each LED.
