Tracerline® Exhibits Mini-EZ™ Hybrid Vehicle Leak Detection Kit at 2015 AAPEX

on Wed, 11/18/2015 - 11:16® 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.

Ultrasonic Diagnostic Tool “Hears” Problems Before They Lead to Breakdowns in Heavy Duty Vehicles

Marksman II KitTracer Products manufactures a line of specialty tools that increase productivity and slash downtime. These products quickly and effectively diagnose all types of leaks before they result in costly repairs.

Tracerline® Marksman™ II (P/N TP-9367) ultrasonic diagnostic tool is a highly accurate instrument that converts and amplifies inaudible ultrasonic sound into audible “natural” sound. Now service technicians can easily hear sounds that signify problems such as air brake leaks, compressed air leaks, vacuum leaks, tire leaks and much more…before they lead to major breakdowns.

The Marksman II uses a two-tiered approach to ensure accurate diagnosis. The ultrasonic receiver converts inaudible sound into audible sound using heterodyne circuitry. Then, its unique Sound Signature Technology finetunes the audible sound into the natural sound emitted by the leak itself. A 5-LED signal-intensity indicator and audible alarm easily pinpoint the exact problem source.

The Marksman II is so sensitive that it can detect leaks from orifices as small as 0.004 in (0.1 mm) at 5.0 psi (34 kPa), from a distance of 12 in (30 cm). An Internal Noise Control feature buffers ambient noise, making it ideal for use in even extremely noisy environments.

This sleek, lightweight, ergonomically designed tool provides comfort and easy handling for prolonged use. The Marksman II comes complete with an ultrasonic receiver, headphones, hollow air probe, solid contact probe and an ultrasonic emitter that helps locate faulty seals, gaskets and weatherstripping in passenger cabs, trailers and other non-pressurized enclosures. All components are packed in a sturdy carrying case.
