Bosch Announces New High-Pressure Leak Tester For Heavy-Duty And Turbocharged Applications

The HPT 500 provides a solution for heavy-duty vehicle diagnosis and repair by producing a larger volume of smoke necessary for these larger systems.

Bosch has introduced the new HPT 500 High-Pressure Diagnostic Leak Tester for North America, offering high-pressure diagnostic leak detection for heavy-duty vehicles and turbocharged passenger cars. HPT 500 provides a solution for heavy-duty vehicle diagnosis and repair by producing a larger volume of smoke necessary for these larger systems. The machine delivers leak detection smoke at up to 30 psi, producing higher pressures than standard machines and simulates truck boost to safely test with the engine off. HPT 500, which debuted at the 2017 TMC Meeting & Exhibition, will be available in North America in April.

HPT 500 was designed with durable, rugged construction for technicians and fleet owners to pinpoint leaks in HD vehicles. Capable of testing an entire system in 15 minutes, the machine can help technicians diagnose leaks faster. The HPT 500 is an ideal solution for testing and finding leaks in exhaust after-treatment systems in medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.

With dual operating modes, technicians can alternate between smoke-only and air-only cycles to confirm repairs. The machine also features a flow control valve, remote shut off, a flow rate gauge and system pressure and test pressure gauges. A low operating cost per test makes HPT 500 a valuable investment for fleet owners and shops that service HD trucks.

The Bosch HPT 500 High-Pressure Leak Tester includes a bottle of vapor-producing fluid, remote control key fob, 100-240V AC plug and a hex key. The housing is constructed of steel and billet aluminum for durability and extended service life.

For a technician or fleet owner looking to service smaller heavy-duty fleets and medium-duty applications, the HPK 200 accessory kit can adapt the HPT 500 to meet those needs. The accessory kit includes:

  • PowerSmoke adapter 1.9²
  • PowerSmoke adapter 2.9²
  • Halogen inspection light
  • Vapor-producing fluid
  • Ball-end hex point L key
  • Oxygen sensor port adapter
  • Temperature port adapter
  • Pressure port adapter
  • Block off coupler
  • Detachable 12V DC power cable
  • Quick start guide
  • Accessory storage case
