ASC 2500 G LOW EMISSION FEATURES
ASC service stations are perfectly geared to the needs of daily workshop routine. Easy to use and maintain, they work fully automatic – no need to keep a constant eye on them. Add to this the convincing cost/benefit ratio and you’ll agree that all the conditions for profitable A/C service are met. Approvals from automotive manufacturers are a recommendation in itself.
The ASC 2500 G Low Emission offers the following distinctive features:
Environmentally sound and profitable
How does it manage to do so? Refrigerant loss mainly occurs in the phase when the refrigerator oil is forced out from the used oil container. The ASC 2500 G Low Emission uses a pressure-tight container. Moreover, the refrigerant escaping during used oil discharging is collected in the used oil container, recovered and returned to the refrigerant tank. The result is a refrigerant loss rate of close to zero percent! The accurate identification of the amount of recovered refrigerant also allows conclusions to be drawn about the tightness of the air conditioner (diagnosis tool).
Please note that the sustainable and economical use of R 134a will be an issue of growing importance in the future!
The EU directive about the shortage of available R 134a resources has already been in force since 1st January 2015.
THE NEW EU F-GAS REGULATION
The new F-gas regulation of the European Union has been in force since January 1st 2015. Aiming at a reduction of the use of fluorinated greenhouse gases, it regulates, among other things, the import quantities for the marketing of R 134a refrigerant. One thing is for sure already: R 134a is going to run short and truly expensive. Refrigerant loss will be something no workshop can afford in the future.
Invest in a low-emission service unit now to be able to offer your customers an attractive and cost-efficient A/C service in the long run. Dometic WAECO’s well engineered low-emission concept keeps you a step ahead of your competitors.

Also great as a diagnosis tool
The ASC 2500 G Low Emission integrates all refrigerant bearing components on the weighing platform. That means the complete amount of refrigerant contained in the unit can be recorded and the amount of the recovered refrigerant can be exactly determined. This in turn will tell the operator about potential leaks in the A/C system. The accurate diagnosis function of the ASC 2500 G Low Emission is also very useful with regard to decreasing refrigerant charging amounts on modern-day vehicles. In the compact car segment we already see models with charging amounts of less than 300 g (e.g. Daihatsu Cuore). Older A/C service units won’t be able to charge these systems with the required accuracy. Excessive or insufficient charging would entail major problems.
