From 1st January 2011 all newly type approved vehicles must adopt a new refrigerant (R1234yf) as part of their air conditioning systems under European legislation.
This new refrigerant with a lower environmental impact, will progressively replace the current R134a, which may still be used by manufacturers until the end of 2016 on vehicles already type approved.
• Acquire two separate service stations
The new R1234yf refrigerant is classified as ‘highly flammable’ therefore the new service stations for vehicle AC systems must adhere to specific restrictions in order to guarantee the operator’s safety during vehicle system maintenance.
KONFORT 700 series recharge stations are designed for the diagnosis, maintenance and recharging of air conditioning systems in cars, heavy goods vehicles and buses. The series comprises six models.
The KONFORT is an innovative range of service stations which has eight International patents. The components used have exceptional features, which guarantee 95% efficiency for refrigerant recovery.
