A heatwave that has gripped the country for days will get worse over the coming weeks – and A/C systems need to meet the challenge. Continuous heat and humidity have been so intense that it has led to roads buckling across the country.
The automotive industry is changing fast – and technicians need UV dyes for electric and hybrid vehicles. In 2017, General Motors announced that it is working toward an all-electric, zero-emissions future. By 2023, GM plans on having at least 18 models EV vehicles.
The automotive industry is currently investigating ways to fight viruses, including using ultraviolet light to sanitize car interiors, foggers to spray disinfectants, upgrading air filtration systems, and employing antimicrobial materials. A handheld tool, such as The DeGERM-inatorTM (UV-5D) can inactivate 90% of most microorganisms in 6-8 seconds by sanitizing areas used in homes and offices, mobile devices, and in automobiles.
Modern, high-tech emergency vehicles use ultra-efficient R-1234yf refrigerant to keep personnel and civilians cool, safe, and comfortable. These A/C systems have a much smaller refrigerant charge and require a concentrated, OEM-grade UV dye. Even the smallest leaks can reduce cooling capacity.
UV dye can extend the service life of vehicles. By finding leaks early, expensive repairs can be avoided. As vehicles age, leaks are much more likely to occur. In the United States, the average age and the total number of older cars on the road today have been steadily increasing.
Tracer Products’ OEM-Grade Fluoro-Lite® 5 TP3825 Dye Now Available in New Sizes for R-1234yf AC Leak Detection
Modern R-1234yf air conditioning systems have new requirements for fluorescent leak detection. With concerns over rising fuel costs, manufacturers are developing more efficient, environmentally friendly vehicle systems.
Tracer Products is proud to announce that their R-1234yf/PAG A/C DYE UV Leak Detection Kit (TPOPUV19) has won the 2019 People’s Choice Award for Leak Detection by the readers of PTEN (Professional Tool & Equipment News) Magazine.
Troubleshooting LF2001, LF2008, LF2001CS LeakFinder Dye Application Dilution Ratio for Trucks and Large Vehicles
LeakFinder LF2001, LF2008, and LF2001CS Oil-Based UV Leak Detection Dyes are the perfect tool for diagnosing leaks in engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, hydraulic fluid, and more. But in larger vehicles – such as trucks and heavy-duty vehicles – the fluid reservoirs are typically bigger and contain more oil-based fluid than a standard passenger vehicle. When these bigger systems are being treated with fluorescent leak detection dye, more dye may be required to activate the fluorescent response effectively. Learn how to use the correct application dilution ratio in larger vehicle systems in the troubleshooting instructions below.
Over the past few years, the Tracerline product portfolio has changed. Although some products have been discontinued, there are NEW and BETTER PERFORMING product options available.
