UV-Torchlight 16F

Hand-held UV-A lamp in torch format with infinitely variable focussing from spotlight to floodlight

With the UV-Torchlight 16F you have a professional hand-held UV-A lamp for non-destructive tracer light detection for the purpose of material testing, leak detection or quality control as well as safety applications.

This lightweight and robust LED torch provides maximum UV-A performance immediately after switch-on and is especially suited for quick inspections or checks of poorly accessible areas.

Thanks to the impressively high spotlight radiation intensity of the UV-Torchlight 16F, a very high fluorescence stimulation can be achieved – this way, even minor tracers are clearly visible in the daylight.

Unlike conventional UV torches, though, the UV-Torchlight 16F can not only be used in spotlight operation: An integrated focus ring enables the infinitely variable regulation of the UV-A radiation cone from spotlight to floodlight.

This variable focal length setting permits a particularly wide range of applications for the UV-Torchlight 16F. Its high illumination flexibility makes the ultra-compact UV-Torchlight 16F a universally applicable tracer detector for various investigation tasks.

Continuously focusable for variable focal length setting

Whether spotlight with maximum fluorescence excitation or floodlight for rapid examination of larger areas – with just one turn of the focus ring on this ultra-compact hand-held UV-A lamp, you always have the optimum light intensity for every task.

Simply turn the focus ring of the UV-Torchlight 16F to adjust the focal length

  • Immediately ready for use without the need of longer warm-up phases
  • Complete set including transport box and UV protection glasses

Our accessory tip: Tracer dyes for leak detection, tightness testing, flow path testing

Depending on the tracer used, the test objects can be fogged with tracer aerosols, immersed in tracer liquid or dusted with tracer powders. Suitable tracers are, for example, water-soluble Uranin powder or Trotec Luminat, an eleven per cent anionic aqueous pigment dispersion, which can be diluted with water, but does not metabolize. This is particularly advantageous in case of leak detections on green roofs or when locating concealed leaky water-bearing pipes or drains. Due to its small pigment size of only 0.5 µm, Trotec Luminat penetrates even the smallest capillaries and is extremely yielding; depending on the field of application, a dilution at the rate of 0.3 to 3 % is sufficient.

Attention! The marking agents Uranin and Luminat must not be used as food colourant!

The UV-Torchlight 16F from Trotec provides diverse application possibilities:

Leakage at the refrigerant line of a car's air conditioning system under UV light using a contrast medium.

Leak detection at motors and aggregates

Using the UV-Torchlight 16F, leaks in motor systems or cooling units can usually be detected as a luminous blotch of colour around the leaky spot in a matter of a few operating minutes by adding a contrast medium (tracer).

Whether for hydraulic system, refrigeration system, lubricant or fuel line – by use of multi-coloured tracers not only the point of leakage can be determined quickly and precisely, but also the cause for leaking.

Leak detection in buildings and supply networks

By using artificial marking agents (tracers) in complex, fluid-bearing lines, their two-dimensional tightness can be checked or leak-related liquid distributions and spills can be detected and analysed with the ultraviolet light of the UV-Torchlight 16F.

Further typical fields of application are tightness tests at water-bearing layers of flat roofs or the inspection of drains and downpipes.

Non-destructive material testing in the industry

Using the fluorescence penetrant inspection (FPI) or the magnetic particle inspection (MPI) with fluorescent testing agents, surface defects or cracks on components and machines can be detected quickly and without great effort in ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as many plastic and ceramic materials thanks to the UV-A radiation of the UV-Torchlight 16F.
