Fluorescent leak detection dye debuts

Spectronics Corporation has introduced Aero-Brite Universal Fluorescent Leak Detection Dye to help pinpoint the exact source of all fuel, lubrication and hydraulic leaks in aviation systems.

Company officials explain you add a small amount of super-concentrated Aero-Brite dye to the aircraft system and let it circulate. The dye/fluid mixture will accumulate at even the smallest leak sites, officials note. Scan the area with a Spectroline high-intensity UV inspection lamp and a bright 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, company officials said, noting 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 it is works for both in-flight and static testing. The dye can remain safely in the system as part of a preventive maintenance program, officials add.
