Millions of pounds lost each year in fluid leaks

Advanced Engineering, market leaders in the manufacture and supply of service equipment to the HVACR industry, says that a practical, unique and cost-effective leak detection kit could save the industry millions of pounds.

With more than 100 million gallons of costly fluids (including refrigerants, diesel, hydraulic and other industrial oils) wasted through leakage every year, companies are feeling the financial impact.

Managing Director Barry Lea says: “An oil leak of three drops per second can see you lose 5610 litres of oil each year. And that’s one leak from one component.

“It quickly mounts up. But, with multiple systems often occupying the same space, identifying leaks can often be an issue.”

Spectroline dyes, exclusively available in the UK through Advanced, offer a broad range of distinctive colours which allow you to use different colours in different systems… enabling a quick and easy detection of the source of the leak.

Barry continues: “Many engineers are cautious about introducing additives into closed-line systems but Spectroline dyes have been specially engineered to be unobtrusive in any host fluid. This means there’s no risk of damaging the fluid’s properties or any of the system’s components.

“What’s more, because Spectroline dye is highly concentrated, you typically only need just a quarter of the quanity of dye required by the competitor’s products.”
