General Details

Refrigerant leaks are the number one cause of poor A/C cooling. Having the correct amount of refrigerant in an A/C system is critical to achieve proper cooling. Any loss of refrigerant will reduce a system’s ability to transfer heat, causing the compressor to work harder and the system to cool less efficiently. Therefore, using a UV refrigerant leak detection kit to find and fix leaks is more important than ever before.

The Tech-Set™ UV55 Leak Detection Kit enables you to conduct a fast, easy, mess-free air conditioning “leakdown” test whereby an orange, universal dye is injected into a closed (sealed) A/C system under full pressure. The UV dye leak detection kit uses orange dye that will be visible under a “correctly tuned” ultraviolet light at the point of a leak anywhere in the system.

Included in the UV Detection Kit are the following:

  • MoonLight™ flashlight with 9 true ultraviolet LEDs includes 3 AAA batteries
  • MoonShine™ blue light blocking glasses
  • Squeeze Gun™ Injector
  • UVS2 universal (orange) dye cartridge
  • R-34a 90° low side snap coupler
  • Molded carrying case with internal padding
  • Operating instructions

Our MoonLight flashlight is the most compact and efficient ultraviolet light we have ever designed. it contains nine high-intensity, true ultraviolet LEDs engineered to maximize the fluorescing capabilities of today’s most commonly used detection dyes in AC systems, while reducing the amount of “nuisance” background blue light emitted. MoonLight components are housed in a rugged, anodized aluminum body with an o-ring sealed battery compartment that will stand up to harsh field conditions. Moonshine glasses, when used in conjunction with the MoonLight flashlight, block the remaining amount of visible blue light, which provides an ideal means of viewing a fluorescing dye that might leak from a closed, pressurized AC system, indicating where a repair is needed.
