Snap-on KoolKare Plus Hybrid-Capable A/C Recycler introduced

Kenosha, Wis.--The servicing of hybrid vehicles is becoming much more common in many shops, requiring special tools and equipment. With the new Snap-on KoolKare Plus Hybrid-Capable A/C Recycler (EEAC325BH), service technicians can not only take advantage of A/C service opportunities on hybrids, but the sophistication of the machine also allows them to service non-hybrid vehicles as well.


“The unique features of the EEAC325BH enable service technicians to service both hybrid and non-hybrid vehicles and that helps increase the repair shop’s A/C revenue possibilities,” said Dan Batassa, category manager for Snap-on. “Hybrid vehicles are a fast growing segment of the vehicle population and the KoolKare Plus Hybrid-Capable A/C Recycler lets technicians service them properly and safely.”


Some of the key features of the new Snap-on KoolKare Plus Hybrid-Capable A/C Recycler include: 


•    Menu-selectable function provides the ability to clear any residual oil from the recycler’s fluid circuit and hoses, minimizing the risk of PAG to POE oil cross-contamination


•    Meets new refrigerant recovery standards J-2788 for high voltage compressors


•    A/C capacities database


•    Automatic air purge


•    Recovery accuracy ± 1.0 ounce


•    Charge accuracy ± 0.5 ounce


It is strongly recommended that users purchase two manual oil injectors (ACT53134A), one designated for use with POE oils (used in hybrid electric compressor systems) and one for PAG oils (used in non-electric compressor, non-hybrid systems).
