MAHLE Service Solutions introduces its ArcticPRO ACX1180C refrigerant handling system, a premier SAE-certified unit for servicing heavy-duty vehicles that use R134a refrigerant.
MAHLE says the ArcticPRO ACX1180C is the OEM heavy-duty commercial option from MAHLE Service Solutions’ popular ACX1180 series. Easy to service and maintain, the ACX1180C is designed to increase technician productivity due to its fully-automatic program to recover, vacuum, leak test and charge without command for ease of operation. MAHLE says the ACX1180C also features an integrated test function that allows the user to capture a before-and-after service snapshot to ensure proper A/C system service functionality. High-pressure leak detection and liquid refrigerant flushing are standard high performance features essential for heavy-duty service.
In addition to recovering more than 95 percent of heavy duty A/C system refrigerant, the company says the ACX1180C features a high capacity 50-lb. internal DOT cylinder to service larger commercial vehicles (as compared to the typical 30-lb. cylinder in automotive version recovery machines). The unit also includes a 5 CFM vacuum pump, an integrated printer, an ambient humidity sensor, three temperature sensors, four pressure sensors, a vacuum micron sensor providing greater system diagnostic capabilities, a factory-installed heater belt and is hybrid certified.
The ACX1180C also meets stringent certification requirements including: SAE J2788, SAE J2099 and UL 1963 and is backed by a two-year parts and labor warranty, MAHLE says.
