Hydraulic, Oil, Fuel Leaks Can Be Detected In Bright Sunlight
The Spectroline MLK-35A MAXIMA UV Leak Detection Kit pinpoints the exact source of leaks in hydraulic, engine oil and aircraft fuel systems. The kit features the super-powerful MAXIMA ultraviolet lamp and an 8 oz (237 ml) bottle of Aero-Brite universal fluorescent dye, which locates all leaks in petroleum- and synthetic-based aviation fluid systems.
The MAXIMA lamp’s state-of-the-art Micro Discharge Light (MDL) technology delivers up to 10 times the UV-A output of conventional High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps.
The MAXIMA is so powerful that it can be used in direct sunlight. This makes it ideal for outdoor inspections on tarmacs and in open hangars. The ergonomic design and light weight of the lamp head — only 21/2 lbs (1.1 kg) — allows it to be held for long periods without causing stress or fatigue. The lamp’s instant on/off/restrike reduces inspection time because it eliminates the need for warm-up.
Also available is the MLK-35MA leak detection kit, which contains a 12-volt rechargeable battery pack, as well as AC and 12V DC cord sets. In addition to the lamp and dye, both kits contain UV-absorbing glasses, fluorescence-enhancing glasses and an 8 oz (237 ml) spray bottle of GLO-AWAY dye cleaner, all packed in a rugged carrying case.
