Nissan Chooses Redline Detection For Essential Tool And Equipment Program

nissan_dual_a_parkerRedline Detection, a leader diagnostic leak detection equipment, recently announced it has been chosen by Nissan to provide essential equipment that will be used to service Nissan and Infiniti vehicles at 1,500 locations. The company demonstrated the new Nissan Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Detector this week at the AAPEX 2016 in booth No. 1661 in Las Vegas.

This equipment provides, for the first time ever, the ability to test a full range of vehicle and engine types, an engineering innovation in diagnostic leak detection. The machine deploys both lower, fixed pressure for quick diagnostic ability in EVAP systems and normally aspirated engine general repair; and also variable, higher pressure to efficiently service forced induction, turbo, diesel and heavy-duty systems, using either visible vapor or air only.

“We are honored to be chosen by Nissan,” said Redline Detection Executive Vice President, Alex Parker. “Redline Detection is the industry leader in the automotive aftermarket and has now been chosen for more essential tool and equipment programs than any other diagnostic leak detection manufacturer in the past decade.”

This technology will provide Nissan and Infiniti service facilities the ability to switch from low pressure to higher pressure for different system test applications, in a single piece of equipment, with literally the flip of a switch, according to Redline. The machine is designed for applications including testing the integrity of the fuel vapor recovery (EVAP) system, complete exhaust system (diesel or gasoline), entire intake system (gasoline, alternative fuel, diesel), turbo and turbo housings, charge air coolers, all boosted engines, diesel particulate filter systems and diesel emission systems. By generating variable pressure from 0.5 to 20 PSI, the equipment gives technicians the ability to adjust flow for diagnosing different types of vehicles. The machine creates a dense, easily visible vapor without the use of dyes and is safe for technicians, safe for vehicles and safe for the environment, the company says.

“Redline has developed a reputation for agile engineering, for creating custom solutions for the world’s leading OEMs. We take enormous pride in delivering top-quality equipment, on time, on budget, every time,” said Parker.
