LeakFinder® SOLO-SHOT™ Leak Detection Kit for Automotive Air Conditioning Systems

WESTBURY, NY— The LeakFinder® SOLO-SHOT™ Single-Use Syringe Universal A/C Leak Detection Kit (LF040CS) provides quality leak detection for all automotive air conditioning systems using R-134a, R-1234yf, or other widely used refrigerants. This kit utilizes fluorescent leak detection dye technology to pinpoint the exact source of all system leaks. Once the dye is added to the system, it circulates throughout and then exits at all leaks sites. When the escaping dye is exposed to high-intensity light, it fluoresces brilliantly and identifies all system leaks.
