MAHLE debuts new engine parts, A/C service tools

On Tuesday MAHLE Aftermarket released more than 80 new part numbers and MAHLE Service Solutions introduced newest innovation to its ArcticPRO product line.

MAHLE Aftermarket’s 81 new part numbers are for a variety of pistons and piston rings, filters, thermostats, engine bearings, and turbochargers now available for both light vehicle and heavy-duty applications.

“MAHLE Aftermarket is committed to having the most extensive range of replacement engine parts, gaskets, filters, thermal management and turbochargers for the aftermarket,” says Jon Douglas, general manager, MAHLE Aftermarket North America. “Our customers expect original-equipment quality, and that’s what they get with MAHLE Original.”

Additionally, MAHLE Service Solutions introduces its ArcticPRO ACX 1180 series of A/C equipment for R134a refrigerant, which in conjunction with the external ID1000 Pro the company says can identify EPA SNAP-approved blend refrigerants.

MAHLE says the ArcticPRO ACX1280 series of A/C equipment specialize in servicing R1234yf refrigerant. These units meet the new standards of mandatory refrigerant verification by utilizing either an internal or external identifier device similar to the ID1000 Pro. Additionally, the ID1000 Pro also alerts technicians to percentages of R12, R134a, R22 and hydrocarbons like propane, butane and air. This unit contains a self-calibrating system that ensures at least 98 percent accuracy, and an optional internal mounted refrigerant identifier is available, the company says.

“At MAHLE Service Solutions we have identifiers built-in or external on our equipment to help service dealer customers quickly determine refrigerant purity,” says Andreas Huber, general manager at MAHLE Service Solutions. “This provides peace of mind because you know the vehicle you are working on does not contain uncontaminated refrigerant. This will help preserve your refrigerant recycling machine, as well as the refrigerant stored in your machine, and help keep your shop environment safe.”
