Tracer Articles Releases Single-Use A/C Leak Detection Kit

Aug. 28, 2019

The new LeakFinder Solo-Shot Single-Use Syringe Universal A/C Leak Detection Kit (LF040CS) is designed to provide quality leak detection for all automotive air conditioning systems using R-134a, R-1234yf, or other widely used refrigerants.

Tracer Articles says the kit uses fluorescent leak detection dye technology to pinpoint the exact source of all system leaks. Once the dye is added to the system, it circulates throughout and then exits at all leaks sites. When the escaping dye is exposed to high-intensity light, it fluoresces brilliantly and identifies all system leaks.

The LF040CS kit comes with four disposable syringes designed for a quick and easy injection. Each syringe is prefilled with the correct amount of dye for the application. There’s no measuring involved and no loss of dye due to spillage. The kit includes the LF400, a powerful blue light LED leak detection flashlight. This economical lamp has an inspection range of 6 feet and 100,000 hours of operational life. The LF400 offers optimal inspection coverage of a vehicle’s air conditioning system and allows the user to scan for escaping fluorescent dye in the tightest and hardest to reach spaces.

The Solo-Shot kit also includes fluorescence-enhancing glasses, underhood service labels, an R-134a hose/coupler, and a purge fitting. Solo-Shot replacement syringes are available in quantities of six per package. Hardware for R-1234yf applications is sold separately.

The LeakFinder Article line is a Tracer Articles brand that specializes in cost-effective, leak detection dyes and solutions for the automotive aftermarket. LeakFinder dyes meet SAE J2297 standards for automotive A/C leak detection and can are completely safe to use. Tracer Articles says LeakFinder dyes are concentrated and fluoresce much brighter than similar Articles in the same price category.
