OEM-Grade A/C Leak Detection Kit Designed with the Professional in Mind

on Fri, 02/19/2016 - 10:19

Tracer Products manufactures fluorescent leak detection kits that offer many advantages over competitive methods, including ease of use, reliability, accuracy, the ability to find multiple leaks and as a preventive maintenance aid. 

The Tracerline® TP-8656 EZ-Shot™ OEM-Grade A/C Kit provides an effective way to add fluorescent dye to a vehicle’s A/C system. Simply add the dye to the system and let it circulate. The dye will escape with the refrigerant and collect at all leak sites. Scan the system with a Tracerline® leak detection flashlight to find the leaks.

 The A/C kit features the OPTI-PRO™ Plus, a cordless, rechargeable, true UV (violet light) LED leak detection flashlight with on-board charging. The high-output UV LED produces optimal fluorescent dye response and contrast, ensuring that each and every leak glows brilliantly.

 Also included in the kit is a BigEZ™ R-134a/PAG multi-dose A/C dye cartridge. It is filled with 8 oz (237 ml) of premium quality, OEM-approved fluorescent dye, and can service up to 64 vehicles. The EZ-Shot™ caulking gun-style A/C dye injector assembly with hose and coupler allows mechanics to inject the exact amount of dye needed. An 8 oz spray bottle of dye cleaner, a smart AC charger and fluorescence-enhancing glasses round out the rest of the kit. All components are packed in a rugged carrying case.

Also included in the kit are an EZ-Ject™ A/C dye injector assembly with hose and coupler, a 0.5 oz EZ-Ject™ R-134a/R-1234yf PAG multi-dose A/C dye cartridge for servicing up to 14 vehicles, a 1 oz bottle of Dye-Lite® All-In-One™ full-spectrum dye for all oil-based fluid systems, a 1 oz bottle of Dye-Lite® Rite-Blend™ extended-life coolant dye, a smart AC charger and fluorescence-enhancing glasses. Using the new TP-9831CS adapter (available separately) allows the EZ-Ject™ coupler to service R-1234yf systems. All components are packed in a sturdy carrying case.

Electronic Refrigerant Leak Detector for Use in Heavy Duty Vehicles

on Tue, 01/05/2016 - 11:57

Tracer Products is at the forefront of leak detection technology. Finding leaks in heavy duty/fleet vehicles saves time, money, repairs, and most importantly, the environment from harmful emissions.

Tracerline® TP-9364 PRO-Alert™ IR Electronic Refrigerant Leak Detector is certified to meet the SAE J2791 and J2913 Standards. It utilizes a state-of-the-art infrared sensor to accurately detect refrigerant leaks down to 0.1oz/year (3 g/year). A three-position sensitivity switch minimizes false triggering and allows for easy diagnosis of small, medium and large leaks. The unit is sensitive to R-12, R-134a, R-1234yf and other refrigerants.

Unlike heated sensors on competitors’ units, the PRO-Alert IR’s infrared sensor offers consistent response throughout its life. In addition, it will not become contaminated by exposure to large amounts of refrigerant. Sensor life is an incredible 1,000 hours or more. The unit’s high-efficiency air sampling pump provides quicker response and quicker clearing (“zeroing”). A rubber-coated, flexible metal probe slithers easily into tight places and holds its position. An audible alarm and multiple LEDs help locate leaks fast.

The PRO-Alert IR is powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, which provides over six hours of use between charges. On-board diagnostics indicate charging status, and alert the user to a low battery condition or infrared sensor failure. The unit can also be used with an AC power adapter and a 12 VDC power adapter with cigarette lighter plug (included). All components are packed in a rugged plastic carrying case. The AC adapter is available in 120V, 230V, 240V and 100V versions.

http://www.tracerline.com/sites/g/files/g374106/f/styles/large/public/TP-9812.jpg?itok=emOM6LNATracerline® recently exhibited the Mini-EZ™ Hybrid Vehicle A/C Dye Injection Kit at this year’s AAPEX convention alongside multiple other highly regarded auto repair and leak detection tools. As a leader of leak detection in the automotive industry, Tracer Products dyes and injection methods are OEM approved by dozens of manufactures worldwide, including BMW and Ford.

An essential component of this dye kit is Tracerline’s EZ-Ject™ dye injector assembly. By connecting the assembly and simply turning the handle, it injects fluorescent dye into a hybrid A/C system without complication or messy clean up. The EZ-Ject™ dye injector easily overcomes system pressure and allows dye to be injected with the system while off or running.

The Mini-EZ Hybrid Vehicle A/C Dye Injection Kit includes:

  • Three ¼ oz (7.4 ml) Mini-EZ single-dose dye cartridges
  • EZ-Ject™ injector assembly
  • Solid-brass R-134a hybrid coupler with check valve and purge fitting
  • Three drip plugs

 

Each Mini-EZ™ single-dose dye cartridge is filled with Tracerline’s co-solvent free fluorescent ester dye with unique additives blended specifically for hybrid A/C systems. Individually wrapped in a moisture resistant foil pouch with desiccant bag to seal-out moisture.

The Mini-EZ™ Hybrid Vehicle A/C Dye Injection Kit provides technicians with a simple and efficient method to inject fluorescent dyes into hybrid vehicles. Hybrid vehicles are becoming more popular. They run cleaner than gas powered cars and have better gas mileage, making them the ideal means of transportation among environmentally friendly drivers. In addition, tax credit programs and incentives are in place to make hybrid vehicles more affordable.
