Tracer Products has introduced the Tracerline Vio-Blu, a cordless, dual-head LED flashlight for locating all automotive system leaks.
The Vio-Blu features a high-output True UV LED at one end and a super-bright blue light LED at the other. As a result, it provides optimal fluorescent response and contrast, regardless of the type of dye. This ensures that all leaks glow brilliantly, the company says.
The True UV LED fluoresces all Tracerline universal/ester and PAG A/C dyes, as well as TP-3400, TP-3405, TP-3900 and TP-3940 fluid dyes. Leaks can be seen even without using the yellow glasses provided. The blue light LED works with all oil-based dyes, including difficult-to-fluoresce yellow dyes.
With an inspection range of 25 feet (7.6 m) or more, this compact, lightweight lamp allows for easy access into tight, cramped areas. Its corrosion-resistant, anodized body stands up to years of heavy use. The Vio-Blu has a service life of 100,000 hours for each LED. It comes complete with a belt holster, three AAA batteries and fluorescence-enhancing glasses, all conveniently packaged in a full-color hanging clamshell.
