Redline Detection, a leading provider of heavy-duty diagnostic leak detection equipment, announced it has been chosen by Volvo Trucks North America and Mack Trucks to provide essential equipment that will be used to service Volvo- and Mack-branded trucks at all of the company’s dealer network locations. Redline recently demonstrated the new Volvo Mack HD PowerSmoke Diagnostic Leak Detector during Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week in Las Vegas.
“Volvo Mack is leading the field in adopting new technology to maximize uptime and increase maintenance efficiency. This equipment will speed maintenance and repair, as well as ultimately increase fuel efficiency, lower operating costs and enhance Volvo Mack’s already world-class customer service,” said Alex Parker, Redline Detection executive vice president.
Transport vehicles cover millions of over-the-road miles, often in grueling conditions and inclement weather. Even the world’s best-made vehicles, right when they are rolled off the assembly line, suffer wear and tear over time. HD PowerSmoke simulates the boost load of a heavy-duty engine with the engine safely off, quickly pinpointing all upstream component faults caused by those time-worn, jarred, cracked components that are the root cause of hard-to-diagnose after-treatment problems.
HD PowerSmoke creates a dense, highly visible vapor at a variable pressure in the 2-20 PSI range that can test the entire system and pinpoint unseen air leaks in just minutes, saving valuable time in preventive maintenance and repair, dramatically increasing uptime, according to Redline. The visible vapor is free of dyes and contaminants so it’s safe for the technician, safe for the vehicle and safe for the environment, the company adds.
Redline Detection says its equipment has been chosen for more OEM mandated tool and equipment programs than any other diagnostic leak detection maker in the past decade. The technology is OEM-mandated or deemed as essential equipment in 112 countries, according to Redline.
“Redline has developed a reputation for engineering custom equipment solutions for the world’s leading heavy-duty OEMs that improve performance, increase fuel economy, enhance customer service and increase uptime. We take enormous pride in delivering top-quality equipment, on time, on budget, every time,” said Parker.
