Tracer Articles Offers R-1234yf A/C Leak Detection Dye in New Sizes
Fluoro-Lite 5 TP3825 OEM Grade R-1234yf AC Leak Detection Dye from Tracer Articles now comes in two new size offerings.
The new sizes are:
- TP3825-P12: (12) 0.25 oz (7 ml) R-1234yf/PAG bottles, which can service up to 12 vehicles; and
- TP3825-1P6: (6) 1 oz (30 ml) R-1234yf/PAG bottles, which can service up to 24 vehicles.
These dyes are used with the TP9883-BX inline injector and TP9884-BX syringe injector.
The company says modern R-1234yf air conditioning systems have new requirements for fluorescent leak detection. With concerns over rising fuel costs, manufacturers are developing more efficient, environmentally friendly vehicle systems. The industry trend to smaller, more efficient vehicle systems makes it difficult to produce high-quality fluorescent leak detection dye. This is because of decreasing AC oil charges, oil/dye compatibility issues, and new refrigerant charging procedures.
Over the past few years, refrigerant systems have changed drastically. Oil charges can now be as low as 60 ml. More than ever, it is critical for OEM Grade R-1234yf AC Leak Detection Dye to be highly concentrated. If too much dye is added to the system, the AC oil viscosity could easily operate outside of the manufacturer’s specification. To avoid causing harm, R-1234yf compatible dyes should be formulated with OEM-grade R-1234yf oil, so the dye can be added safely without changing system properties.
