GREYHOUND BUS, SUBSIDIARY OF FIRSTGROUP, CHOOSES HD POWERSMOKE AS ESSENTIAL TOOL
Diagnostic Leak Detector Rolled Out to All Dealer Locations
ORANGE, May 14 , 2019—Redline Detection, the industry leader in heavy duty diagnostic leak detection equipment, today announced they have been chosen by Greyhound Bus to provide essential equipment that will be used to service Greyhound buses at all of the company’s North American dealer locations.
“Greyhound is an iconic American brand and Redline is proud to be a part of their remarkable success” said Redline Detection Executive Vice President, Alex Parker. Greyhound, a subsidiary of FirstGroup, celebrated it’s 100 year anniversary in 2014. “This equipment will speed the maintenance and repair of Greyhound buses and increase fuel efficiency.” With 2,400 destinations across North America, Greyhound carries over 16 million passengers a whopping 5 billion passenger miles a year.
The equipment adopted by Greyhound, HD PowerSmoke, will facilitate quick diagnostics of vehicles to identify faulty components caused by road-wear. The machine simulates the boost load of a running engine with the engine safely off, quickly pinpointing all faults – including the hard-to-find upstream component faults that are often the root cause of aftertreatment problems - with 100% accuracy.
HD PowerSmoke creates a dense, highly visible vapor at a variable pressure in the 2-20 PSI range that can test the entire system and pinpoint unseen air leaks in just minutes, saving valuable time in preventive maintenance and repair, dramatically increasing uptime. The visible vapor is free of dyes and contaminants so it’s safe for the technician, safe for the vehicle, and safe for the environment. Redline Detection equipment has been chosen for more OEM mandated tool and equipment programs than any other diagnostic leak detection maker in the past decade. The technology is OEM-mandated / essential equipment in 132 countries.
