The Smoke Wizard Model GLD-50, from Global Leak Detection, is smaller, lighter and more portable than virtually any other smoke machine available today. It stores safely in a toolbox -- even on its back or side. The GLD-50 uses patented, OEM EVAP-approved UltraTraceUV dye smoke solution to quickly and easily find system leaks, such as:

  • EVAP
  • Vacuum
  • Exhaust
  • HVAC
  • Crankcase


It’s also very useful for locating wind noises, water leaks, and countless other leaks.        

The included UV light pinpoints the exact spot of small leaks, even hidden leaks that require disassembly. Optimized to use shop air or patented, inert gas technology for safer EVAP testing.
