Super-Compact UV-A LED Flashlight Perfect for Crime-Scene Investigation

on Thu, 09/03/2015 - 13:10

 Law enforcement officials and forensic technicians depend on effective, reliable, lightweight inspection lamps for a wide variety of criminal investigations. The Spectroline®OPTI-LUX™ 365 UV-A LED flashlight is an economical, rechargeable unit with a powerful UV-A (365 nm) LED light source perfect for crime-scene investigation and gathering potential evidence for forensic analysis.


Engineered with a lightweight and compact aluminum body, the OPTI-LUX 365 greatly reduces user fatigue. It gets into tight, cramped places that larger lamps can’t.

UV-A LED Panel Flood Lamps Ideal for NDT Inspection

on Thu, 09/03/2015 - 11:54

Spectronics Corporation offers the PowerMAX™ 365 Series UV-A LED flood lamps for NDT technicians that require an extensive coverage area. Each lamp features a panel of 16 powerful UV-A (365 nm) LEDs specially engineered for non-destructive testing applications. These versatile, stationary light sources can be installed overhead or in-line, and can be connected together to provide even wider coverage.


PowerMAX 365 Series lamps are available in four models: high-intensity and standard-intensity versions, each with or without a black light filter.

Budget-Friendly UV LED Flashlight Ideal for Industrial Leak Detection

on Thu, 09/03/2015 - 11:33

An ill-maintained industrial system can leak more than fluids – it can leak money. Spectronics Corporation, a worldwide leader in leak detection solutions, has come to the rescue with the new LeakTracker™ (P/N LT-300) ─ a powerful, economical UV LED leak detection flashlight that’s ideal for all industrial fluid system applications.


LeakTracker has a high-output UV LED that delivers superior fluorescent dye response, making industrial leaks easier to spot.

High-Intensity UV EPROM/Wafer Erasing System Features Large Load Capacity

on Thu, 09/03/2015 - 11:16

The Spectroline®PC-4420A UV EPROM/Wafer Erasing System is a high-intensity unit with a large load capacity. It produces a nominal initial short-wave UV (254 nm) intensity of 46,000 µW/cm² to ensure quick and complete erasure of programmed memory from every EPROM chip or wafer. This high-efficiency unit can complete an erasing cycle in just 4 minutes.


The PC-4420A utilizes four high-intensity, ozone-free, mercury vapor quartz grid lamp assemblies mounted on specular aluminum reflectors.

Low-Cost UV Crosslinker Speeds Up DNA Research

on Thu, 09/03/2015 - 10:59

The crosslinking process utilizes short wave (254 nm) UV light to covalently bond nucleic acids to either nitrocellulose or nylon membranes. Spectronics Corporation manufactures advanced, versatile and accurate crosslinkers to avoid the loss of nucleic acids during the hybridization process, a consistent, irritating problem for lab technicians. The Select™ XLE-Series is a high quality, inexpensive ultraviolet crosslinker that addresses this issue. It covalently binds nucleic acids to membranes in under 30 seconds — 240 times faster than vacuum-oven baking.


The unit is able to identify and

Leak Detection Kit Ideal for Medium to Large AC&R Systems

on Thu, 09/03/2015 - 10:44

The Spectroline®OLK-400BEZ/E Complete BigEZ™ Leak Detection Kit contains everything needed to locate refrigerant leaks in medium to large size AC&R systems — including high-pressure R-410A systems. Simply add a small amount of dye to the system and let it circulate. The fluorescent dye can be added with the system off or running. The dye/oil mixture escapes with the refrigerant wherever there’s a leak. The exact source of every leak will be revealed by its bright fluorescent glow.


At the heart of the kit is the OPTI-LUX™ 400, a powerful, rechargeable violet light LED leak detection

Ultra-Powerful UV Leak Detection Kit Finds All Aircraft Fluid Leaks

on Thu, 09/03/2015 - 10:17

The Spectroline®MLK-35A MAXIMA™ Leak Detection Kit pinpoints the exact source of leaks in hydraulic, engine oil and aircraft fuel systems. The kit features the super-powerful MAXIMA ultraviolet lamp and an 8 oz (237 ml) bottle of Aero-Brite™ universal fluorescent dye, which locates all leaks in petroleum- and synthetic-based aviation fluid systems. Detecting leaks quickly and efficiently saves time, money, and most importantly, lives for the millions of people who use air transportation every day.


The MAXIMA lamp’s state-of-the-art Micro Discharge Light (MDL) technology delivers up to 10

Free White Paper on Mining Maintenance Cost and Safety

on Mon, 08/17/2015 - 17:24

Spectronics Corporation, world leader in ultraviolet technology since 1955, releases a white paper on improving reliability, cost, and safety in mining industries


Spectronics Corporation, leading manufacturer of preventive maintenance tools across several major industries, has released a free white paper discussing ways in which equipment maintenance and reliability can be drastically improved in the mining industry.

It may surprise many to learn that using poorly maintained equipment not only puts employees in danger, but also the operation at risk for costly breakdowns.

Telescopic, Violet Light Lamp Gets Into Cramped AC&R Systems

on Thu, 08/13/2015 - 11:09

Spectronics Corporation, the world’s premier manufacturer of ultraviolet lamps and fluorescent dyes, has introduced the new Spectroline®VioMAX Plus (P/N VMP-400CS) telescopic, violet light leak detection lamp. This “mini” lamp finds AC&R leaks in tight, cramped areas not accessible to larger, bulkier lamps.

The high-output 400 nm violet light LED offers optimal fluorescent response and contrast and works with all universal /POE dyes. Using a VioMAX Plus lamp makes locating leaks in an AC&R system a simple procedure. Add a small amount of fluorescent dye to the system and let it circulate.

Super-Bright Fluorescent Dyes Pinpoint All Water Leaks

on Tue, 08/11/2015 - 13:52

Plant maintenance inspectors will appreciate all the benefits of Spectroline®WATER-GLO® fluorescent leak detection dyes. These super-bright dyes reveal all leaks in static and circulating water systems, boilers, storage tanks and other high-volume containers. They also locate leaks in piping, valves, condensers, sprinkler system pumps, seams, welds and fittings.

Simply add a small amount of WATER-GLO® 801 or WATER-GLO® 802 fluorescent water dye into a system and allow it to circulate. Wherever the water escapes, so does the dye, which remains at the site of all leaks.
