Universal fluorescent dye locates leaks in aviation systems

AD-8609 Aero-Brite Universal Fluorescent Leak Detection Dye from Spectronics Corporation is a quick and easy way to pinpoint the exact source of all fuel, lubrication and hydraulic leaks in aviation systems.

July 8, 2015  By Spectroline

Simply add a small amount of the super-concentrated dye to the aircraft system and let it circulate. The dye/fluid mixture will accumulate at even the smallest leak sites. Scan the area with a Spectroline® high-intensity UV leak detection lamp and a bright green glow will show the precise location of every leak.
Aero-Brite dye is specially formulated to work with any petroleum- and synthetic-based host fluid and meets Mil Spec MIL-PRF-81298E, Type III, Yellow/Green Fluorescent for aircraft fuel systems. It will not damage the fluid’s properties or any of the system’s components. Aero-Brite allows inspection of the entire system under most operating conditions, and it is ideal for both in-flight and static testing. The dye can remain safely in the system as part of a preventive maintenance program.
Aero-Brite is available in 8 oz (237 ml), 16 oz (473 ml) and 32 oz (946 ml) bottles, and 1 gallon (3.8 L) containers.
