-- The Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator Sweeps Awards at AAPEX Show --
ORANGE, Nov. 15, 2016—Redline Detection today announced that the Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator has won three prestigious industry awards for product innovation and best in class equipment during the annual 2016 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo AAPEX Show in Las Vegas. The machine has recently been chosen as mandated /essential equipment for 1,500 Nissan and Infiniti dealership locations. “There’s a reason the world’s leading automakers choose Redline for their mandated tool programs” said Alex Parker, Senior Vice President of Redline Detection. “We take great pride in manufacturing the highest quality, most innovative equipment available.”
Redline’s new Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator is an innovation in leak detection: Never before has it been possible to switch from low pressure to higher pressure for engine types and different applications, in a single piece of equipment, with literally the flip of a switch. “Low pressure is essential for EVAP and traditionally aspirated engines for general repair. But this equipment dramatically increases efficiency by creating both low and higher pressure vapor. The higher pressure diagnostic ability is needed for turbo, diesel, boosted vehicles where technicians need to replicate the boost load,” says Ms. Parker. She emphasized that the Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator is the very first diagnostic tool of its kind. “Variable range of low to high pressure testing has never been possible until now.”
The Redline Dual Purpose Diagnostic Leak Locator won the PTEN Innovation award, the Import Automotive Community Best New Tool for Repairs on Cars and Trucks, as well as the Professional Tool and Equipment People’s Choice Award.
