FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. — MAHLE Service Solutions has introduced the ArcticPRO ACX1180C refrigerant handling system for servicing heavy-duty vehicles that use R134a refrigerant.
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, the company said.
The unit 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.
The unit can recover more than 95 percent of heavy-duty A/C system refrigerant, the company said, and has 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 ACX1180C 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.
MAHLE Service Solutions is currently offering a promotion that includes a free unit cover for customers who purchase an ACX1180C machine by Sept. 30.
The ACX1180C meets SAE J2788, SAE J2099 and UL 1963 certifications, MAHLE said, and is backed by a two-year parts and labor warranty.
