Primalec: leak detection solutions and air conditioning systems

With our fluid leak detection, detection and prevention systems, we improve quality controls and make air conditioners cool faster, perform better, and last longer product lives.

Primalec is a UK manufacturer of leak detection solutions and air conditioning systems, both for OEM production lines and the aftermarket. Our customers include companies in the automotive, refrigeration and air conditioning industries and many other sectors. Founded in 1979, we have been developing, manufacturing and packaging our specialty products in Kent for 38 years, working with suppliers around the world. About 60% of our products are exported to countries across the globe.

Our product offering includes ultraviolet lights, ozone generators, tracer gas test kits, Glo-Leak® UV test fluids and the "Airco Seal" and "Seal Pro" sealants for leaks. In addition, we have the ability to mix, fill and package our liquid products as you wish, and package them in containers of your desired size.

Launched in 1987, Glo-Leak® UV fluid technology is used successfully in factories producing engines and vehicles, and is also very popular in the aftermarket and after sales service engineers. We are the first company in Europe to specialize in this field and we supply several factories of vehicle manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers in many parts of the world. We work closely with our customers in both the product manufacturing and aftermarket sectors and offer our products either directly or via our partner network. Combined with our Nitro TraceTM pressure test system and the USX2 Ulltrasonic and Leaktronic electronic detectors, Glo-Leak® and Primalec UV light sources enable trouble-free detection of fluid leaks in vehicle engines, coolant circuits, fuel and hydraulic systems, industrial machinery, construction, air conditioning and refrigeration equipment ,

Primalec places particular emphasis in the aftermarket area on mobile air conditioning systems. Our expertise in this field, which we have accumulated over many years, makes us the ideal partner for air conditioning maintenance. This includes, among other things, the investigation of coolant leaks and their repair, the lubrication of equipment, products to improve the cooling performance, cleaning and disinfection of vehicle interiors, system flushing and common spare parts such as system valves, fasteners and the upgrade of old equipment.

With the shift to new, lower-GHW coolants, it is more important than ever to use the right tools and consumables as service technicians have greater expertise and need to be more careful when installing and maintaining such equipment.

Our UV products detect leaks in vehicle engines, cooling systems, fuel and hydraulic lines, and air conditioning systems, and cure adhesives and resins used in windshields, for example.
