Spectronics Corporation has introduced Aero-Brite Universal Fluorescent Leak Detection Dye, which helps to pinpoint the exact source of fuel, lubrication and hydraulic leaks in aviation systems. 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, company officials said. 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. 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 works for in-flight and static testing. The dye can remain safely in the system as part of a preventive maintenance program.
