July 11, 2013 – Spectronics Corporation claims its new Optimax 400, a violet light LED leak detection flashlight, emits less visible light so industrial fluid leaks are easier to spot, saving technicians valuable diagnostic time and effort. According to the company, the Optimax 400 features a high-output LED that causes fluorescent dyes to glow more brilliantly and with greater contrast than conventional lamps. The flashlight’s pre-focused beam optimizes fluorescent response without any adjustments needed. With power comparable to high-intensity 150W lamps, it works well with Spectroline Oil-Glo 33 (green), Oil-Glo 44 (yellow/green) and Oil-Glo (red) oil-based dyes, as well as Water-Glo 802 (green) water dye, says the company. Powered by standard AAA batteries, this unit features an LED with a 100,000-hour service life.
