The SpectrolineÂ® UV Max Plusâ„¢ is a fluorescent leak detector with a telescopic extender that reaches up to 28 inches (70 cm). According to the manufacturer, the lamp's true UV LED bulb makes all refrigerant leaks glow brightly. The bulb has an average rated life of 100,000 hours. An adjustable service mirror is designed to allow technicians to see around hoses, fittings, and other obstructions. It is powered by three 1.55-V alkaline coin batteries, which are supplied with the detector. The waterproof, anodized aluminum housing is corrosion- and impact-resistant, says the company. The detector can clip onto a shirt pocket.
