Spectronics debuts OPK-441 industrial leak detection kit
By Alyssa Dalton
Mar. 23, 2015 – Spectronics describes its OPK-441 industrial leak detection kit as a starter kit designed to pinpoint the exact source of all leaks in hydraulic equipment, compressors, engines, gearboxes and fuel systems. The kit features the Optimax 400 violet light LED flashlight, a high-intensity unit that reveals leaks in small- to medium-sized industrial systems, even in cramped areas. Also included is an 8-oz (237-ml) twin-neck bottle of Oil-Glo 44 concentrated fluorescent oil dye, which is compatible with synthetic and petroleum-based fluids. When a leaking system is scanned with the flashlight, the dye glows a bright yellow/green at leak sources to reveal the location. Rounding out the kit is an 8-oz (237-ml) spray bottle of Glo-Away dye cleaner, dye treatment tags, and fluorescence-enhancing glasses.
