Providing Service Locations the Ability to Diagnose Full Range of Vehicle and Engine Types


ORANGE,  April 16, 2019Redline Detection, the industry leader in diagnostic leak detection equipment, today announced they have been chosen by Mazda to manufacture essential equipment that will be used to service vehicles across North America, providing Mazda owners with best-in-class service.

“We are honored to provide Mazda with this technology to support their excellent lifetime vehicle performance and legendary customer service” said Redline Detection Executive Vice President, Alex Parker.

The Mazda Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Detector is designed to test the integrity of the complete engine system, from the air cleaner to the tip of the exhaust, in a single, 15-minute procedure, with 100% reliability. Applications include intake system testing on diesel, gasoline and alternative fuel vehicles, both turbocharged and normally aspirated; and also exhaust systems, both gasoline and more complex diesel systems with aftertreatment components. The machine goes from higher, variable pressure to low, fixed pressure with the flip of a switch to test fuel vapor recovery systems.

This equipment provides, for the first time ever, the ability to test a full range of vehicle and engine types, an engineering innovation in diagnostic leak detection. By generating variable pressure from 0.5 to 20 PSI, the equipment gives technicians the ability to adjust flow for easy, quick, and 100% reliable diagnosis across the model range. The machine creates a dense, highly visible vapor without the use of dyes and is safe for technicians, safe for vehicles, and safe for the environment.

Groundbreaking Technology Pinpoints Air Brake Leaks, Air Powered System Leaks

Redline Detection Unveils Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak LocatorAbout Redline Detection, LLC.San Diego, March 6, 2018Redline Detection, the industry leader in heavy duty diagnostic leak detection equipment, today launched their fire industry division. Redline is demonstrating the new Air Brake NanoLeak Finder at Firehouse World, Booth 1045, in San Diego. Redline will be giving away a YETI cooler each day of the show. Attendees should stop by Booth 1045 for a chance to win, no purchase required.

Firehouse World is the leading event serving today's fire-service leadership with the range of products, technologies, and education necessary to prepare them for the urban, rural, and wildland challenges.

During Firehouse World, Redline is demonstrating new, groundbreaking air brake leak finder equipment that gives a foolproof green or red, pas or fail, indicating in one minute whether emergency vehicles have air brake leaks. The machine then pinpoints 100% of leaks in under 10 minutes, ending unreliable, messy, time-consuming soapy water searches. At only 18 lbs, the compact, portable, professional grade Air Brake NanoLeak Finder™ comes with all accessories needed to go to work.

“Redline equipment is the choice of the world’s most respected truck and apparatus manufacturers. We have experienced incredible response to this new technology, thousands of emergency vehicle technicians are telling us that air brake leaks have been a huge problem and that they are thrilled with this solution.

Transport Topics Sponsored Content ImageNew air brake leak finder technology
is helping fleet operators increase uptime. The tool uses DOT standards to indicate in one minute – with a simple green-red, pass-fail - whether the tractor or trailer has a leak that would cause the vehicle to be red tagged, pinpointing all leaks in under 10 minutes.

Small air brake leaks quickly turn into big problems

New ELD rules mean fleet operators are under greater pressure to maximize vehicle uptime and driver hours of service. “Air brake leaks have been a real problem. In Wisconsin, the vehicles we service take a beating from weather and rough road wear. Small air brake leaks quickly turn into big problems that can cause a vehicle to be red tagged or brought in on the hook. That really cuts into uptime and the bottom line” said Scott Maves, Packer City International Trucks.

Putting a price on a day of downtime

Field tests indicate that new air brake leak finder technology can save hours -or even days- when searching for leaks in air brake and air powered systems, cutting costly vehicle downtime. Paying an hourly technician to search for air brake leaks with soapy water is a small expense, the real cost of using this outdated procedure is in lost uptime for the vehicle. Conal Deedy, director of connected vehicle services at Mack Trucks, says a downed truck can cost $900 to $3,000 a day.

New technology finds air brake leaks that are impossible to find any other way

The brake leak finder isn’t just saving technician time, it’s getting trucks back on the road faster which boosts the bottom line. Up to 30% of fleet tractors and trailers are operating with leaks that would be red-tagged by the DOT. Air Brake NanoLeak Finder was used recently on a truck that had been out of service and the dealer had spent over 20 hours of labor trying to find a persistent air brake leak. That leak caused several days of lost revenue for the fleet and couldn’t be found with soapy water or sonic ears. The Nanoleak Finder was able to pinpoint the air brake leak in under 10 minutes and definitively determine that it was 100% repaired, getting the truck back on the road. “This breakthrough technology will become the 'best practice' procedure for air brake diagnostics and repair" said Scott Maves of International.

When lives are at stake, minutes count

No one feels the pressure to eliminate air brake leaks like emergency vehicle maintenance engineers. First responders can’t let a vehicle idle to rebuild pressure after air brakes have leaked down, costing valuable minutes of response time. Fire departments across the country are using this technology with excellent success. Transport busses that utilize air actuated doors and access height systems are also using Air Brake NanoLeak Finder to quickly test and precisely locate high pressure air brake Leaks with 100% reliability.

Pass or fail in under a minute, pinpoint the leak in under 10 minutes

With a quick setup, the tool runs a one minute, foolproof diagnostic that indicates whether the truck or trailer has a leak that exceeds DOT standards. If there is a leak, it pressurizes the system with a signature air, pinpointing the location of all leaks in under 10 minutes, cutting hours of technician time getting the vehicle back in service faster. Air Brake NanoLeak Finder is the only technology that can ensure a tractor or trailer meets US DOT standards and that it doesn’t risk being taken out of service.



Redline Detection is the maker of the world’s best-selling diagnostic leak detection equipment, designed, engineered and manufactured in the USA. Redline tools and equipment are hard at work every day in 135 countries around the world. From the world’s leading OEMs to individual technicians, Redline Detection has built a global fan base for its professional grade custom diagnostic solutions, as well as for its ability to increase the bottom line.

Redline has engineered a brilliant solution that in under a minute gives a green/red, pass/fail indicating whether vehicles meet DOT standards, and then pinpoints the problem in under 10 minutes. That means that even a relatively inexperienced technician can reliably test every vehicle, quickly pinpointing the site of the problem with 100% certainty, freeing more experienced technicians to make repairs.”

Patent pending technology in the equipment creates a signature air that, in conjunction with the hand-held NanoLeak™ Locator, pinpoints the precise location of air brake leaks instantly. The NanoLeak Finder™ features a clear green or red, pass or fail indicator light for foolproof testing regardless of technician, truck, or trailer variables. The equipment improves efficiency, saving valuable hours and marking a dramatic engineering advance from conventional, messy, soapy water methods and ineffective listening devices.
