Redline Detection unveils its new Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator.
According to Redline, a full, variable range of low- to high-pressure testing has never been possible until now. Applications for testing include both low pressure leak testing for traditional vehicle EVAP / general repair; and variable / higher pressure testing for forced induction / turbo, diesel, and heavy-duty leak detection, using either visible vapor or air only.
“Redline is at the forefront of equipment innovation and everything we engineer is in response to technicians’ needs in the field. Low-pressure leak testing for EVAP applications is essential in every repair facility. But as more automakers turn to turbo, diesel, boosted systems to achieve improved fuel economy without sacrificing performance, technicians now also need high pressure testing capability to replicate this higher boost,” says Redline Executive Vice President Alex Parker.
“The Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator was engineered to quickly locate difficult-to-find leaks and failing components across a wide boost load range, on all types of vehicles: Standard passenger vehicles, turbo, diesel cars, heavy duty trucks, delivery vehicles, even construction, mining, and farming equipment.”
Redline says this technology dramatically increases shop efficiency by giving the ability to switch from low pressure to higher pressure for different applications, in a single piece of equipment, with literally the flip of a switch. The ease-of-use of this equipment allows even relatively inexperienced technicians to quickly locate hard-to-find leaks and confirm that the vehicle is fixed right the first time, saving valuable time and improving the customer experience. Constructed of professional grade steel and billet aluminum for lifetime durability, the Dual Purpose machine also offers advanced safety features, the company says.
