WESTBURY, N.Y. – Tracer Products announced they have filed a lawsuit against UView Ultraviolet Systems, Inc. for patent infringement of its Tracerline Tracer-Stick dye capsules for refrigerant leaks.

Tracer’s leak detectors are prefilled with Fluoro-Lite fluorescent dye and are a popular way to simply and cleanly add dye to vehicle air conditioning systems, according to the company. The suit was brought about by UView’s introduction of its disposable in-line capsules, which Tracer says infringe on its detection product.

Spectronics, Tracer’s parent company, invented the fluorescent leak detection technology in 1955. Today, Fluoro-Lite dye is being factory installed in new air conditioning systems for cars and trucks around the world. For more information on Tracer products, visit www.tracerline.com. n
