Redline Dual Purpose Leak LocatorORANGE, Calif., August 9, 2016
Redline Detection, the maker of the world’s best-selling diagnostic leak detector, announced it has been chosen for the prestigious 2016 PTEN Innovation Award for the Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator. “Evaluated by a panel of judges consisting of technicians and shop owners, the PTEN Innovation Awards recognize the most innovative products introduced in the last year to the automotive aftermarket. ” said Erica Schulz-Schueller, Editor of PTEN Magazine.

The award-winning Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator allows technicians, with the flip of a switch, to service all vehicle and engine types across a full boost range, for the first time ever. The elegant simplicity of this equipment allows even relatively inexperienced technicians to quickly locate the issue and, once the repair is made, to confirm with 100% certainty that the vehicle is fixed right the first time, increasing shop efficiency and improving the customer experience.

According to the company, technicians have been asking for a single diagnostic leak detector that can quickly locate difficult-to-find leaks and failing components in ANY boost load range, on ALL vehicles: Standard passenger vehicles, turbo, diesel, light duty trucks, delivery vehicles. “Low-pressure smoke testing for EVAP and general repair applications is essential in every repair facility. But as vehicles have become more complex, mid-range variable pressure testing is needed to replicate the full load of a running engine to open up miniscule cracked components and allow technicians to quickly find failing parts” says Executive Vice President, Alex Parker.

A full, variable range of low to high pressure testing has never been possible, until now. This technology dramatically increases shop efficiency by giving the ability to switch from low pressure to high pressure for different applications, in a single piece of equipment, with literally the flip of a switch. Without dyes or contaminants, there is no concern about coating sensitive components or sensors so it’s safe for the vehicle, safe for the technician and safe for the environment. “This is truly next generation technology, the Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator dramatically increases shop efficiency and for technicians, saving time means making more money on every repair. We are truly honored to receive this prestigious recognition from PTEN” said Parker.
