Tracer offers hybrid A/C dye kit
Tracer Articles has introduced the Tracerline TP-3812 Hybrid Vehicle A/C Dye Injection Kit, featuring an OEM-approved fluorescent dye specially formulated for use in all hybrid vehicles.
At the heart of the kit are three Tracer-Stick capsules filled with a concentrated, co-solvent free POE fluorescent dye with an additive package blended exclusively for hybrid A/C systems.
Each capsule is individually wrapped in a foil pouch with a desiccant bag to seal out moisture. The kit also includes an R-134a hose/coupler with check valve, a purge capsule and two purge/service fittings for both hose purging and connecting to a refrigerant source.
To add the dye, simply connect one end of the hose to the R-134a low-side service port of the system and the other end to the refrigerant source. The dye and refrigerant are injected together, yet no residual dye is left in the hose to absorb moisture.
Wherever the refrigerant escapes, so does the dye. When scanned with a high-intensity Tracerline UV or blue light inspection lamp, each leak site will glow a bright yellow-green to reveal the exact source of all leaks.
