Spectronics Corp. recently introduced Aero-Brite Universal Fluorescent Leak Detection Dye. When a small amount is mixed with the host fluid, it locates all leaks in aviation fuel, lubrication and hydraulic systems, company officials say. The dye can safely remain in the system as part of a preventive maintenance program and works well with all petroleum-based lubricants and fluids.
The dye is featured in a recently published brochure, which also contains information about the ALK-365 Aviation Leak Detection Kit, which is a complete kit for finding aircraft fluid leaks. In addition to an 8-ounce bottle of Aero-Brite dye, the kit includes Optimax 365 UV LED leak detection flashlight, which is cordless and rechargeable. It also features high-powered, corded UV lamps, such as the Maxima Series UV lamp kits and the Tritan 365 multi-LED, broad-beam UV lamp.
Specialized diagnostic tools include the Marksman ultrasonic diagnostic tool and the Cobra Series of multi-purpose borescopes. The Marksman converts and amplifies inaudible ultrasonic sound into audible “natural” sound for accurate diagnosis of compressed air, vacuum, pneumatic and other pressurized leaks, according to company officials. The borescopes feature long, thin shafts that enable technicians to inspect and leak check hard-to-see components — without disassembly.
