ASC Low Emission in use

WAECO LowEmission process control

The A/C service technology of the future.
From the beginning of next year Europe’s automotive manufacturers will be obliged to use an environment-friendly refrigerant in the A/C systems of their vehicles – without any ifs and buts. “Environment-friendly refrigerants”, says the EU regulation, are refrigerants with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of less than 150. As a result, the new, relatively expensive R 1234yf refrigerant is going to be introduced in all new vehicle models to be registered in Europe.

Today’s automotive A/C systems need to be charged with accuracy

Today’s automotive A/C systems need to be charged with accuracy

The underestimated risk.
Several years ago everything was fine in the world of automotive air conditioners. A standard A/C system was charged with about 1.5 kilograms of refrigerant – and it actually didn’t matter if there were 1.3 or 1.7 kilograms of coolant romping about between the compressor and the filter drier, because there was enough leeway in either direction. Those air conditioning systems used to work almost without fail for a long time. And they did so until automotive manufacturers started experimenting with weights and materials where they saw an enormous potential for savings. Today, we are witnessing refrigerant charging amounts of less than 300 grams. 200 grams of refrigerant more or less in these systems can have serious consequences.

Correct oil separation is the nuts and bolts of A/C service

Correct oil separation is the nuts and bolts of A/C service

Avoid costly damage.
The fact that over 90 percent of today’s cars and commercial vehicles is fitted with an air conditioning system makes A/C service a reliable cash machine for automotive workshops. Air conditioner maintenance is not only a good basis for successful business operations, it also protects customers from costly repairs. With the correct amount of refrigerant in the system, the compressor is properly cooled and lubricated thanks to the oil contained in the coolant. If there is too little refrigerant in the circuit, though, the system’s core component – the compressor – cannot be cooled and lubricated sufficiently. Serious compressor damage and chip formation can be the results of this deficiency.

WAECO Workshop Award 2016

WAECO Workshop Award 2016

Longest serving A/C unit found.
When celebrating the production of its 50,000th A/C service unit last year, Dometic WAECO was searching for the oldest WAECO A/C service station still in use. They found it at Bosch Car Service Derichs in Stolberg, a German town near Aachen, where a WAECO RHS 750 has been loyally doing its job for over 25 years now. The good old machine is maintained with loving care by Günter Derichs, who passed his master craftsman’s exams in 1974, the founding year of the WAECO company. The service unit is regularly in use even today, now for the disposal of worn-out R12 A/C systems.
