Hybrid vehicles are becoming more popular these days as the price of gasoline continues to rise. Back in 2001 there were a total of 4 hybrid models available, today in 2012 that number has increased to 41 models available and continues to grow. Looking at the numbers in 2009, there were over 1.4 million hybrids in the USA with better than 1 million of them using high voltage electric compressors. The number of hybrid vehicles continues to increase, present new challenges to service facilities providing A/C service work to both vehicles with traditional A/C systems and the high voltage electric compressor systems used on many hybrids. To address the differences in the A/C system on certain hybrids, in June 2010, the SAE published a revised version of the SAE J2788 standard that covers the operation of an A/C Recover, Recycle and Recharge (RRR) machine. The revised requirements state that a machine must not have on-board automatic/manual oil or dye injection and must be capable of charging refrigerant into a system with less than 0.1 percentages by weight of any residual oil. A machine must meet these new requirements to be suitable for servicing both vehicles with a high voltage electric compressor that uses POE oil and traditional PAG oil systems. Aside for the obvious there should be no automatic oil injection anywhere on the A/C RRR machine, another way to tell if a machine is certified as suitable for servicing vehicles that use high voltage electric compressors is to look for the marking "Certified for High Voltage Compressor Service". Specifications: 115 Volt 60 hertz, refrigerant container on-board 30 pounds (14 kilograms) vessel, operating range: 50 - 120 Fahrenheit (11 - 49 Celsius), recycling filter-drier 43 cubic inches spin-on type, pump-free air displacement 1.5 CFM (36 liters/minute).

Direct liquid recovery without damaging the compressor. Oil-less compressor allows rapid transfer of large amounts of liquid. Efficient fan and large condenser can handle high ambient temperatures. Multi-refrigerant capable with Self-Clearing feature which prevents cross-contamination. It includes Four 60 inch hoses with ball-valves included and 1/4 inch MFL fittings. It is CE approved.
Mastercool (69000) Blue Refrigerant Recovery System
This recovery systems is compact, lightweight and work with all refrigerants. It's ideal for commercial, residential or industrial appliance applications. Our recovery systems offer a state-of-the-art 1/2 HP oil-less compressor with a built-in high volume cooling fan. This new innovative design delivers maximum cooling efficiency which keeps the compressor working at high capacities in even the hottest climates. The compressor is also protected by an automatic low pressure cut-off switch that shuts off the unit once the recovery is complete. This AUTO SHUT-OFF feature eliminates the risk of compressor failure and reduces the user's need to monitor the entire recovery system. All of our recovery systems offer our newest color-coded gauges with pressure readings in PSI, BAR and Mpa. Our stainless steel ball valve designed manifold controls the flow smoothly and quickly with only a 1/4 turn. With all of this protected by a reinforced hard plastic case, Mastercool's new recovery systems will meet all your refrigerant recovery needs.

Bright Solutions Inc. 746 Easy Fill Multi-Shot Injector
Manufacturer: Bright Solutions Inc.
Brand: Bright Solutions
The Easy-Fill injector is fast, clean and easy-to-use and a great value. This simple to use injector allows the technician to access a charged A/C system to inject leak detection dye (771430 or 771440) while watching it flow. For the first time, the technician will be able to see the dye go into the system. Then begin their search for leaks. The Multi-Shot Injector is both economical and fast. It is boxed with instructions.
