Spectroline® Glo-Stick® disposable fluorescent dye capsules are prefilled with Ar-Glo® dye, so technicians don’t have to measure and pour dye when adding it to HVACR systems. The dye is compatible with all commonly used refrigerants, including blends. According to the manufacturer, it is cosolvent-free, so it can’t impair lubricant properties, which could lead to excessive wear or damage to system components. Glo-Stick dye capsules are available for mineral oil, POE, and alkyl benzene lubricant systems and in four sizes/concentrations to match system capacity. Once the dye is in the system and has circulated, scanning the system with a Spectroline inspection lamp will reveal the precise location of all leaks, shown by a bright yellow-green glow.

Spectronics Corp., 956 Brush Hollow Rd., Westbury, NY 11590; 800-274-8888 or 516-333-4840; 800-491-6868 or 516-333-4859 (fax); www.spectroline.com
