The Smoke Wizard, used by a wide range of OEMs, allows technicians to find leaks in virtually any low-pressure system by supplying a smoke vapour and UltraTraceUV dye solution.
In under 20 seconds, the device heats the smoke solution to produce the vapour, which is then delivered using compressed air or inert gas to the affected system.
The smoke vapour contains a specially formulated OEM approved non-contaminating and non-permanent UV dye for use in all automotive systems for leak detection.
The dye leaves a residue around any leaks, which is especially important for finding leaks that may be hidden or require disassembly to find.
There are two models available in the aftermarket – the GLD-40 and the GLD-50 Smoke Wizards.
In a recent press release, Launch UK announced: “The compact unit, weighing 10lbs, is powered from the vehicle’s battery so it needs no external power source and can be stored upright or laid flat.
“The flow gauge displays flow into the system and provides a scale on the size of leaks prior to leak detection, saving the technician time by proving there is a leak prior to looking for smoke vapour and UV dye.
“The pressure decay gauge verifies leaks in the system by monitoring both positive and negative pressure during leak down tests, and the flow control valve allows total control of the volume of vapour delivered from the machine.”
The kit includes a Schrader tool, EVAP service port adapter, assortment of cap-plugs, a combination light, exhaust cone adapter and two bottles of UltraTraceUV Smoke Solution.
As the lead distributor, Launch UK now stocks all spares, machines and is the official Tech Support centre for customers.
