-- NanoLeak Brake Tester Technology Being Used at Brake Test Station Competition --
ORLANDO, September 19, 2017—Redline Detection, the industry leader in heavy duty diagnostic leak detection equipment, announced today that they are a proud sponsor of the 13th annual Technology & Maintenance Council’s National Technician Skills Competition, the TMC SuperTech Challenge. 130 of the best heavy duty technicians in the country are competing at 36 stations to crown the Grand Champion of the National Technician Skills Competition.
TMC SuperTech is North America’s premier skills competition for professional commercial vehicle technicians. SuperTech competitors come from the nation’s largest fleets including FedEx Freight, Walmart Transportation, UPS, Pepsi Co, and others . Redline Detection’s Air Brake NanoLeak Finder™ is being used to test competitors’ skills at the trailer brake testing station. NanoLeak Finder™ is revolutionizing brake leak testing by indicating if there is a leak in under one minute, then pinpointing the leak in under ten minutes.
George Arrants, Chairman, said “We appreciate all of the companies and individuals that support the PTDC Friend of the Technician program and the National Technician Skills Competition — TMCSuperTech; this year we add Redline Detection as a Friend of the Technician sponsor and skills station supporter. Their equipment will allow technicians to see and find air leaks on aftertreatment and air brakes like never before. We welcome them to the TMCSuperTech team.”
The NanoLeak technology produces a signature air to definitively locate even minute leaks in compressed air systems. For both tractors and trailers, simply connect to a compressed air system, introduce the signature air into the system, and use the NanoLeak Locator to pinpoint the exact location of leaks. Dramatically saving technician time, technicians can set up a one button test procedure; the machine pressurizes and performs a DOT leak down test, eliminating human error and freeing up technicians to walk away while the machine performs the test. There is no warm up time, a very simple hookup, and the lightweight machine eliminates messy, imprecise soap and water, saving hours, guaranteeing fast, 100% accurate brake testing and diagnostics.
“NanoLeak is going to change the way fleets do brake testing and maintenance. This machine runs a foolproof automated brake leak test that gives a green/red, pass/fail, immediately indicating whether a trailer or tractor meets DOT standards or risks being red-tagged. Then it precisely pinpoints the leak, all in under ten minutes” said Redline Executive Vice President, Alex Parker.
Redline is also the manufacturer of award-winning HD PowerSmoke technology, OEM mandated in 112 countries for pinpointing leaks that are frequently the root cause of aftertreatment problems. HD PowerSmoke is engineered for heavy and medium duty applications including testing the integrity of the complete exhaust system (diesel or gasoline), complete intake system (gasoline, alternative fuel, diesel), turbo and turbo housings, charge air coolers, all boosted engines, diesel particulate filter systems, diesel emission systems. By generating variable vapor pressures from 0 to 20 PSI, the machine gives technicians the ability to vary flow for diagnosing different types of vehicles.
