WESTBURY, NY–(Marketwired – October 13, 2015) – Spectronics Corporation, the world’s leader in UV leak detection since 1955, has released a white paper which reveals the benefits to using fluorescent dyes in leak detection procedures. The document explains several dye quality specifications that educate readers on what to look for when choosing a dye. The study also compares leak detection lamps and injection methods, ensuring that technicians will find the best solution to suit their needs.

With the approval from major manufacturers, technicians no longer need to hesitate before adding fluorescent dyes to HVACR systems. Like all tools that have been around for years, leak detection dyes and delivery methods have gradually modernized for easier and more effective use.

David Lax, National Sales Manager of Air Conditioning and Refrigeration at Spectronics Corporation, talks about his experience with the growth of leak detection products throughout his career:

“For decades, fluorescent leak detection was the last resort among contractors for finding those pesky leaks when all other methods failed. Nobody disputed the fact that the products worked, but often these earlier products were bulky, expensive, and not very user-friendly. Times have changed. Today’s fluorescent leak detection products have improved so much that they are now being used by contractors as a primary tool, and are often incorporated into a preventative maintenance program that identifies minor issues before they become problematic.”
