"I can’t imagine any fleet or repair facility not adopting this. We have no more unsolvable upstream leak issues. This technology is going to change the way we test, diagnose and repair heavy duty vehicles.”

Chris Michael, Valley Power Systems, in Diesel Progress

 

ACCELERATED LEAK DIAGNOSTICS

BY CHAD ELMORE

Leaks in a heavy-duty truck’s exhaust system can be a health hazard to operators and errant holes in an air intake system can cause big problems with aftertreatment devices. Tracking down the source of a leak can be a time-consuming and thankless task. Redline Detection LLC has introduced patent-pending technology intended to help heavy-duty equipment technicians and engineers in that search. The company said the new tool can turn a troubleshooting task that can normally take hours into a solitary 10 minute procedure. 

Chris Micheal, WheelTime truck service network champion for Valley Power Systems, has been field-testing the new technology. “We are using this equipment every day and are seeing substantial savings in time, parts, costs and overall efficiency,” he said. “I can’t imagine any fleet or repair facility not adopting this. We have no more unsolvable upstream leak issues. This technology is going to change the way we test, diagnose and repair heavy duty vehicles.” 

Based in City of Industry, Calif., Valley Power Systems is a distributor for a wide range of engines. It is a founding member of WheelTime, which has more than 200 locations in the U.S. and Canada.

The new HD PowerSmoke leak detection system from Redline Detection is designed for heavy-duty trucks, buses, construction equipment and agricultural applications with engines up to 15 L.

The technology was established in passenger and performance cars before a request from a heavy-duty truck manufacturer led to the development of a heavy-duty version of the system. Since then, many on-road and offhighway equipment manufacturers have worked with the company to develop a device tailored to their machines, Redline said. According to the company, those firms have listed the tool as mandatory or approved equipment at their dealer service centers. 

Over-the-road truck drivers don’t usually pull in for service because they have detected an air leak in their truck’s intake system. The problem usually manifests itself as a performance issue. 

“The most common complaint is too many DPF (diesel particulate filter) regeneration events,” said Bill Woods, senior sales executive for Redline’s heavy-duty business. “It doesn’t matter if it’s an F-350 or a semi truck. If the vehicle is having more regens than normal, there’s a leak on the intake side of the turbocharger. We usually find that the clamp on the turbo is a problem point as well as couplers and cracked charge-air coolers. The largest number of leaks I’ve found in trucks are generated by workmanship, not component failure. 

“When technicians check a system, it’s common practice to remove the charge-air cooler and isolate it during a test, but doing that removes the leaky connector. They’ll test the part and when it passes, they put the leak right back on the truck. Technicians will spend hours tearing apart the truck to fix a leak caused by installing a clamp improperly.” 

HD PowerSmoke uses shop compressed air to maintain a pressure of 2 to 20 psi throughout the intake and exhaust system with the vehicle’s engine switched off. Expanding adaptors seal off entrances and exits while a dense, highly visible vapor flows through the truck’s hoses, tubes and related components. The steam is created by vaporizing mineral oil and has no contaminants that could harm or coat sensors, Redline said. It flows through the pressurized system and out any tiny holes that are present so technicians can see the source of the trouble. 

“Another common problem is that the truck is using a lot of DEF (diesel exhaust fluid),” Woods said. “With HD PowerSmoke hooked up to the truck, I’ll find a leak within 10 in. of the dosing valves. The hole lets more oxygen into the system, which causes DEF to crystalize before it does its job. The truck will start burning through a bunch of DEF but will still be running fine.” 

Leaks can also cause a diesel engine’s air management system to overcompensate with the fuel rate. “The truck could be running 10 to 20% fat — not enough to smoke but enough to cause a DPF clog,” Woods said. “It might cause a 0.5 mpg drop in mileage, which won’t throw a fault code and isn’t enough for the driver to notice. It’s the worst-case scenario for shops: there’s no code, but the truck is having a problem and they can’t find the cause.” 

HD PowerSmoke uses variable pressure and flow rates to replicate boost load and allow the technician to adjust flow as needed to find tiny faults, Redline said. Different leaks show up at different pressures, so it’s critical that technicians can dial the pressure up or down to replicate engine boost, the company said. 

Engineered and built by Redline at its headquarters in Southern California, the kit includes two PowerSmoke adaptors, a 60 in. SmokeMeister wand, smoke nozzle, cooling system adaptor, pressure oxygen and temperature port adaptors, vapor-producing fluid, spare quick connect couplers and a halogen inspection light. 

“Verifying that the part is bad is often more important than the diagnostics of it,” Woods said. “You want to verify a part is actually bad before you replace it and the only way I know to verify that those tubes are OK is to pressurize and test the system with HD PowerSmoke. 

“’Parts darts’ is not an effective repair procedure. It doesn’t matter what system it is. You need to know air is getting through it cleanly and efficiently to be sure it’s doing a proper job. For fleets, HD PowerSmoke technology is ending the pain of unsolvable upstream leak issues and the health hazard of exhaust leaks in the cab.”

ORANGE CA, May 13, 2016Redline Detection announced today that in a first instance decision, the European Patent Office (EPO) in Munich, Germany has unanimously ruled to revoke in its entirety Star EnviroTech's European Patent No. 1,384,984 dealing with the use of nitrogen generated smoke with dye to leak test vehicles in Europe. At an opposition proceeding between Redline Detection and Star EnviroTech, it was determined that Star’s method for detecting leaks in a fluid system with nitrogen and/or UV dye as claimed is not patentable over Star’s own prior art. Consequently, the European Patent Office has prevented efforts by Star EnviroTech and its president Jim Saffie, to monopolize the use of nitrogen generated smoke with a dye. Zachary Parker, CEO of Redline Detection, shared his view that “The EPO oral hearing was impressive to attend as it was fast, thorough, and driven by fact-finding discussion. The United States Patent and Trade Office (USPTO) would be well served to emulate the efficient and effective European system.”

Star EnviroTech formerly obtained European Patent No. EP 1384984 for a method of testing vehicles for leaks using nitrogen and fluorescent dye to generate smoke, seeking to block all competitors from using such methods. But such patents require a new invention that was not previously used, published or publicly known. While claiming that it was a new invention, Star EnviroTech and its president Jim Saffie failed to disclose to the Patent Office that such use was well known in the United States years before Star filed for its European Patent covering exactly the same thing.

To stop Star’s monopolization efforts in Europe, Redline Detection stepped in to make the European Patent Office aware that the method was known long before Star improperly patented it in Europe. While an appeal is possible, it will prove challenging for Star EnviroTech because the improperly claimed method is disclosed in Star’s manuals, in third party manuals, and a Star trademark on an oil-based fluid with UV dye used for leak testing – all long before Star EnviroTech improperly sought its European patent.

In light of this information the European Patent Office revoked Star’s improperly obtained patent – but did so over Star’s protests and over Star’s denials that the process was old as shown by Star’s own materials. Star EnviroTech’s attempt to improperly monopolize the use of nitrogen-generated smoke containing fluorescent dye is thus thwarted in Europe. When Mr. Parker was asked why Star would attempt to contest a patent revocation with clear facts against them he offered, “Perhaps Star EnviroTech has been licensing and selling technology that it does not own in Europe, Canada and other countries. While most OEM automakers do not require the use of nitrogen to test vehicles for leaks - and several actually forbid the use of dye - no company, including Star EnviroTech, should ever use improperly obtained patents to unlawfully prevent healthy, legal competition. Now all tool and equipment manufacturers are free to use nitrogen and UV dye to test vehicles in Europe.”

Star obtained similar nitrogen/dye patents using the same questionable methods in several other countries such as Canada, Japan, Australia, and Spain by not disclosing to the Patent Office it was patenting old technology. It is expected that Star EnviroTech will move to vacate those patents or suffer the same fate of having them publicly overturned as happened in Europe.
