UV lamps or torches are the best dye companion for finding and observing leaks in AC&R systems that are normally invisible to the human eye or difficult to locate using an electronic device. Not all HVAC/R leak detection lamps are created equal and with many options on the market it can be challenging to know if you are making the right purchase.
GLO Seal™ combines high quality fluorescent dye with AC&R system leak sealant Cool Seal™, for a powerful and safe system additive. With one quick installation, GLO Seal™ pinpoints the exact location of all leaks and micro-leak areas.
Fluorescent dye is a fast and efficient way to find all leaks in air conditioning and refrigeration systems but given the nature of the product it can be messy if handled incorrectly. Most fluorescent dye spills occur when a service port of a pressurized AC&R system charged with dye is accessed, resulting in a forcible spray of dye. Additionally, incomplete connection to the service port and/or injecting fluorescent dyes into systems with damaged or out-of-specification service ports may also result in dye spills.
In recent years, the U.S has seen a steady rise in the fermented craft beverage industry, composed of alcoholic beverages, wine, and beer, as well as non-alcoholic beverages such as Kombucha or Cider. In 2019, there were over 8,000 breweries in the U.S, an 8.9% increase from the previous year. For wine making, the U.S accounts for 12% of the world’s production with over 10,000 wineries producing over 900,000 gallons of wine a year, as reported in 2017.
Commercial refrigerators are vital equipment that can cost a business a fortune if left un-serviced and breakdown. Preventive maintenance and routine care are necessary to help save on costs and keep your equipment running smoothly and more efficiently longer.
This year at AHR Expo, Spectronics brought awareness to AR-GLO® 5 (their new, brighter dye), as well as their featured leak detection kits. While speaking to North American Sales Account Manager, Matthew Cowley, he highlighted benefits of the new dye, such as AR-GLO® 5’s ability to fluoresce brighter, its greater resistance to extreme temperature ranges and moisture, and a longer shelf life.
Over the past few years, the Spectroline product portfolio has transformed. Although some products are discontinued, there are now NEW and IMPROVED products available.
Find Hydraulic Fluid Leaks Quickly and Accurately Every year, millions of gallons of hydraulic fluid are lost – leading to contaminated work areas and cost overruns. Hydraulic equipment cannot operate correctly if fluid levels are low and are not meeting manufacturers’ specifications. If hydraulic leaks persist, equipment will be at risk of mechanical failure. This inevitability…

What’s the real cost of leaking hydraulic fluid? The cost of lost operational fluid can rise into tens of thousands of dollars. Fluid-based systems quickly breakdown, overheat, and fail when there isn’t enough vital, operational fluid. Think about it. When your equipment is stuck in the repair shop, it’s costing you thousands in lost operating revenue. That net revenue includes wages, permits, repair costs, lost working hours, reduced equipment service life – everything.
