Telescopic, True UV Leak Detection Lamp Gets Into Cramped Automotive Systems

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - August 26, 2015) - Tracer Products is committed to manufacturing products that find leaks quickly and efficiently, while saving the vehicle technician time and money. The newest addition to its extensive line of leak detection lamps is the Tracerline® VioMAX Plus™ (P/N TP-8650ACS).

VioMAX Plus is a telescopic, True UV (violet light) leak detection lamp that's ideal for finding A/C and fluid leaks in tight, cramped areas inaccessible to larger lamps. Its super-bright 400 nm violet light LED offers optimal fluorescent response and contrast, and works with both universal/ester and PAG A/C dyes, as well as most fluid dyes.

Finding leaks in an automotive system is easy. Simply add a small amount of fluorescent dye to the leaky system and let it circulate. The dye will escape with the refrigerant or liquid. When scanned with the VioMAX Plus, the leak will glow brightly.

The VioMAX Plus is very lightweight and portable; weighing a mere 1.6 oz (45 g). It measures only 9 in (23 cm) in the closed position and extends to a full 29 inches (74 cm). With the aid of the large pivoting mirror, measuring 1 inch in diameter (2.54 cm), the technician can clearly view even the most elusive leaks from any angle; even those that are out of sight and out of reach. The lamp automatically turns on when the shaft is extended and off when the shaft is compressed. Powered by three 1.5 volt (AG3/LR41 batteries (included), the VioMAX Plus has an LED service life of 100,000 hours. The lamp comes in full color clamshell display packaging.
