Tracer Products has introduced a line of POE and PAG refrigerant oils premixed with ultraviolet dye. Designed for mobile A/C systems, the oils contain super-bright, OEM-approved Fluoro-Lite fluorescent dye that is co-solvent free, according to the company; the oils are safe to use with all types of refrigerants and compressors. In addition to R-134a miscibility, they also are formulated for enhanced lubricity and stability, and for excellent antiwear properties.

Nontoxic and nonhazardous, the dyed oils work with any standard fluorescent leak detection lamp, Tracer says. Offered in 8-ounce, 32-ounce and one-gallon sizes and in all popular viscosities, the dyed oils are designed to make it easy to add the exact amount of fluorescent dye and oil in the proper viscosity to each system being serviced; they save time and money, minimize waste and mess, and are easy to use and store.
