Marketplace Fluid Leak Detection Dye Tracer Products has released a new product geared toward uncovering leaks in petroleum-based fl uid systems. According to Tracer, Dye-Lite TP-3100 fl uorescent dye pinpoints engine oil, hydraulic fl uid, lubrication fl uid, compressor oil and gearbox oil leaks. To use, add a small amount of TP-3100 dye to the system and allow it to circulate for several minutes. Wherever there is a leak, Tracer says the dye escapes with the oil and accumulates at the site of each leak. Th e company then says to scan the system with a high-intensity Tracerline ultraviolet or blue light lamp. Th e dye will glow a bright yellow color to reveal the exact location of all leaks. Aſt er the leaks have been repaired, scan the system with the light again. If there is no glow, Tracer says that means that all the leaks were fi xed properly.
