Leak Detecting Flashlight

Produces a glow that makes leaks easier to find Works with all oil- and water-based fluorescent dyes

The new Spectroline OPTI-LUX 365 is a powerful but compact leak-detection flashlight that provides enhanced UV light for optimal fluorescent dye response. The developer describes it as “ideal for all industrial fluid system applications.”

The OPTI-LUX 365 works with all oil- and water-based fluorescent dyes: OIL-GLO 22 (yellow), OIL-GLO 30 (white), OIL-GLO 33 (green), OIL-GLO 40 (bright blue), OIL-GLO 44 (yellow/green), OIL-GLO 45 (blue) and OIL-GLO 50 (red), as well as WD-801 and WD-802 water dyes. It produces a brilliant glow that makes all leaks easier to find, while cutting diagnostic time. The flashlight even works with difficult-to-fluoresce dirty fluids, the developer emphasized.

The OPTI-LUX 365 is compact, lightweight and more than twice as powerful as most corded, high-intensity UV lamps. “Instant-on” operation enables the flashlight to reach full power immediately, and it provides up to four hours of continuous run-time. The rugged, anodized aluminum lamp body reduces corrosion and will endure years of heavy use.

The flashlight comes complete with a lanyard, belt holster, two rechargeable batteries, smart charging cradle with AC power cord and UV-absorbing spectacles, all conveniently packaged in a padded carrying case.
