Tracer Products has unveiled the Tracerline OPTIMAX 400 — an economical, cordless, true UV LED leak detection flashlight. It emits less visible light so leaks are clearer and easier to spot, saving valuable inspection time for technicians, the company says.
The OPTIMAX 400 features a high-output UV LED that causes dyes to fluoresce more brilliantly and with greater contrast than with conventional inspection lamps. The flashlight’s pre-focused beam optimizes fluorescent response without any adjustments. It works with all Fluoro-Lite universal/ester and PAG A/C dyes, as well as Dye-Lite TP-3400 and TP-3900 series fluid dyes.
The OPTIMAX 400 is extremely compact and lightweight, which allows it to get into tight, cramped areas that larger lamps can’t. Its inspection range is up to 10 feet (3m) or more. A rugged, corrosion-resistant, anodized aluminum lamp body stands up to years of heavy shop use. Powered by standard AAA batteries (included), the unit has a 30,000-hour LED service life.
The flashlight comes complete with a lanyard, belt holster and fluorescence-enhancing glasses, all packaged in a full-color hanging clamshell.
