Listed below are our top Frequently Asked Questions:
|Refrigerant||Capsule Size||Oil Quantity|
|Up to 1.3kg of refrigerant||GS-101||up to 0.4 litres of compressor oil|
|1.4 to 2.2kg of refrigerant||GS-1||0.5 to 1.5 litres of compressor oil|
|2.3 to 4.5kg of refrigerant||GS-2||1.6 to 3.0 litres of compressor oil|
|4.6 to 11.3kg of refrigerant||GS-3||3.1 to 7.6 litres of compressor oil|
It is always advisable to calculate the volume of dye needed based on the oil charge.

The reason for these approvals is that Spectroline additives are a solution of colorant (which is a super stable ultra violet fluorescent molecule) and a high quality refrigeration oil that is the same as the system lubricant. (It may be mineral, ester, PAG or Alkyl Benzene).
Once the additive is in the system the final concentration is one part colorant to 350 – 500 parts lubricant or 0.2%. This is far less than the 1:32, 3% ratio recommended by other additive suppliers.
The stability of the molecule, plus its exceedingly low concentration in the host lubricant, ensures that there will be no ill effects to the lubricant’s chemical or physical properties or the systems components. This is the reason for the approvals – no other additive supplier has the approval of any compressor manufacturer.
The ‘Optimax Jr Complete Starter Kit’ offers excellent value for money, providing you with everything that you need to get started.
For larger systems (Chillers etc):-
If you are working on large systems then look no further than the ‘Optimax Pro Complete Starter Kit’. This features the Optimax Pro lamp which is not only much more powerful than it sibling, but is also rechargeable. In addition to the Optimax Pro Lamp, the kit also features the Big EZ injector kit which contains more dye making it ideal for dosing larger systems.
