Redline Detection Unveils Air Brake Nanoleak Finder

This new technology can locate air brake leaks, air suspension and air powered accessory system leaks.

Redline Detection, an industry leader in heavy-duty diagnostic leak detection equipment, has unveiled the Air Brake NanoLeak Finder, a technological innovation that quickly pinpoints leaks in air brake, air suspension and air powered accessory systems. The new equipment is being demonstrated at the CONEXPO – CON/AGG Show taking place March 7-11 in Las Vegas. Redline and its new Air Brake NanoLeak Finder will be located at Bronze Hall booth No. B90418.

“The Air Brake NanoLeak Finder allows technicians, for the first time ever, to test for air brake leaks and pinpoint the precise location of leaks, in minutes. The equipment is being used by OEMs to locate leaks in heavy-duty trucks and equipment that would take hours with conventional methods, saving valuable service time and getting trucks back on the road fast,” said Alex Parker, executive vice president of Redline Detection. “This is a very exciting breakthrough for anyone who deals with air brake leaks.”

The patent pending technology in the machine creates a signature vapor that, in conjunction with the hand-held NanoLeak Locator, pinpoints the precise location of air brake leaks instantly. Clear, audible and visual signals speed diagnostics and pinpointing of leaks. The equipment improves efficiency, saving valuable hours and marking a dramatic technical advance from conventional, messy, soapy water methods and ineffective listening devices.

“Our technicians spent over 16 labor hours attempting to find air brake leaks on two fire trucks. We could not find the leaks until we used the Air Brake NanoLeak Finder. Using this equipment we found and fixed all the leaks on both fire trucks in only 1.7 hours. This breakthrough technology will become the ‘best practice’ procedure for air brake diagnostics and repair,” said Chris Micheal of Valley Power Systems, who field-tested the new technology.

With a simple, one-minute test cycle, the Redline Air Brake NanoLeak Finder will flash a clear green or red, pass or fail light indicator for fool-proof testing, regardless of technician, truck, or trailer variables, the company states. Redline says its Air Brake NanoLeak Finder can indicate, with 100 percent certainty, whether a vehicle, tractor or trailer meets U.S. DOT Standards or risks being taken out of service.

The durable, professional-grade equipment comes complete with all necessary accessories, ready to go to work right out of the box, according to Redline. Weighing only 8.6 pounds, the Redline Air Brake NanoLeak Finder runs on compressed air and 12V DC, and utilizes test pressure up to 135 PSI (9.3 BAR).

Redline Detection also is the maker of the award-winning HD PowerSmoke high-pressure diagnostic leak detector.
