Cost-efficient A/C service
Strict environmental laws and surging refrigerant prices will soon lead to a situation where motor garages will no longer be able to afford any refrigerant loss when repairing automotive A/C systems. AirCon specialist WAECO comes up with a well engineered solution for economical, eco-friendly A/C service already now: the company’s low-emission service units achieve a refrigerant recovery rate of close to 100%. Two models are available for the car segment of the market: ASC 2500 G for R 134a refrigerant and ASC 5500 G RPA for the “new” R 1234yf refrigerant.
The patented solution is based on a 4-step process which has a unique benefit over other manufacturers’ service units: it also recovers and reuses the refrigerant contained in the used oil. That means that no expensive gas will escape into the environment. A positive side effect is that the recovered amount of refrigerant can be exactly measured, so the service operator will be able to say for sure whether or not the A/C system is tight.
Businesses investing in this future-oriented technology have an edge over their competitors. After all, the higher purchase price will soon pay off due to the savings on refrigerant costs. Workshops with an average number of service runs will save hundreds of Euros per year. Savings are especially impressive in case of high-capacity air conditioners. Which is why WAECO now also offers a profitable solution for A/C service on buses and rail cars with its new ASC 3500 G Low Emission service unit.
