Tracer Products offers its Tracerline Vio-Blu cordless, dual-head LED flashlight, which is designed for locating all type of automotive system leaks. The Vio-Blu features a high-output True UV LED at one end and a super-bright blue light LED at the other. These lights provide optimal fluorescent response and contrast, regardless of the type of dye, according to Tracer. This ensures that all leaks glow and are visible to automotive technicians.
The True UV LED fluoresces all Tracerline universal/ester and PAG A/C dyes, as well as TP-3400, TP-3405, TP-3900, and TP-3940 fluid dyes. Leaks can be seen even without using the yellow glasses provided. The blue light LED works with all oil-based dyes, including difficult-to-fluoresce yellow dyes.
With an inspection range of up to 25 feet (7.6 m), this compact, lightweight lamp allows for easy access to tight, cramped areas, according to Tracer Products. The company added that its corrosion-resistant, anodized body is designed to stand up to years of heavy use. The Vio-Blu has a service life of 100,000 hours for each LED, according to the company.
