WESTBURY, NY—(Marketwired – January 05, 2018) – The SpectrolineÂ® OLK–444 Industrial Leak Detection Kit pinpoints leaks in all oil–based fluid systems, such as hydraulic systems, compressors, engines, gearboxes, and fuel systems. To use the kit, add OIL–GLOÂ® 44 fluorescent leak detection oil dye to the suspect system and scan leak areas with the OPTI–LUXâ¢ 400 violet light leak detection flashlight included in the kit. The fluorescent dye works in enclosed systems where fluids are used for lubrication, hydraulics, cooling control, or hydrostatic pressure testing. The fluorescent dye is safe, can remain within the system, and be used for leak detection in future inspections. Detecting leaks early on saves money. A hydraulic fluid leak of one drop per second translates into 420 U.S. gallons lost per year. At $5 per gallon, the cost of this leakage would be approximately $2,100 per year.
Leak detection is essential to maintaining a smooth–running fluid system. Low system fluids â such as oil or hydraulic fluid â can affect the equipment's operation and increase wear–and–tear of internal parts. This leak detection kit prevents expensive equipment breakdowns, reduces labor costs due to downtime, and helps to stop environmental pollution. It has been estimated over 100 million gallons of hydraulic fluid could be saved every year, in North America alone, if leakage were eliminated.
The OLK–444 kit features the OPTI–LUXâ¢ 400 violet light LED leak detection flashlight. The flashlight is compact, lightweight, and rechargeable. Its high–output violet light makes the dye fluoresce brilliantly.
Also included in this industrial leak detection kit is a 16 oz (473 ml) twin–neck bottle of patented OIL–GLOÂ® 44 concentrated oil dye, which is compatible with all synthetic and petroleum–based fluids. When a leaking industrial system is scanned with the OPTI–LUX 400, the dye glows a bright yellow/green color to reveal the precise location of all leaks.
The OLK–444 kit comes with an 8 oz (237 ml) spray bottle of GLO–AWAYâ¢ dye cleaner, a smart charging cradle with AC and DC cord sets, dye treatment tags, and fluorescence–enhancing glasses. All components are conveniently packed in a rugged carrying case.
