Redline Detection Unveils Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator

Redline Detection recently unveiled the new Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator, offering a full, variable range of low- to high-pressure testing. Applications include both low-pressure leak testing for traditional vehicle EVAP/general repair; and variable/higher pressure testing for forced induction/turbo, diesel and heavy-duty leak detection, using either visible vapor or air only.

“Redline is at the forefront of equipment innovation and everything we engineer is in response to technicians’ needs in the field,” said Executive Vice President Alex Parker. “Low-pressure leak testing for EVAP applications is essential in every repair facility. But as more automakers turn to turbo, diesel, boosted systems to achieve improved fuel economy without sacrificing performance, technicians now also need high-pressure testing capability to replicate this higher boost. The Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator was engineered to quickly locate difficult-to-find leaks and failing components across a wide boost load range, on all types of vehicles: standard passenger vehicles, turbo, diesel cars, heavy-duty trucks, delivery vehicles, even construction, mining and farming equipment.”

This technology increases shop efficiency by giving the ability to switch from low pressure to higher pressure for different applications, in a single piece of equipment, with literally the flip of a switch, says the company. The ease-of-use of this equipment allows even relatively inexperienced technicians to quickly locate hard-to-find leaks and confirm that the vehicle is fixed right the first time, saving valuable time and improving the customer experience. Constructed of professional-grade steel and billet aluminum for lifetime durability, the Dual Purpose machine also offers advanced safety features.

The higher pressure testing technology inside the new all-in-one unit was engineered in partnership with Jaguar Land Rover to expedite maintenance throughout the life of the vehicle and enhance customer satisfaction. The machine is designed for applications including testing the integrity of a complete fuel vapor recovery (EVAP) system, complete exhaust system (diesel or gasoline), complete intake system (gasoline, alternative fuel, diesel), turbo and turbo housings, charge air coolers, all boosted engines, diesel particulate filter systems, diesel emission systems.
