SEMA Show, Day Four: Bosch rolls out nitrogen fill, A/C systems
Bosch Diagnostics, a business unit of Robert Bosch LLC, introduced a nitrogen tire filling system and an air refrigerant handling system at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas.
The Bosch NTF 715 Portable Nitrogen Tire Filling System has settings for both 95% and 98% nitrogen fill, which the system produces with the help of a quadruple filtration system.
Once programmed and hooked up to a vehicle's tires, it purges and fills all four tires simultaneously (up to six if the optional "dually" hose is installed). If a customer only wants to top off one tire, the NTF 715 can accommodate him with a single-fill hose and gauge.
A wireless remote Technician Notification System, which alerts the tech when the job is completed, is optional.
The automated Bosch ACS 615 Air Conditioning Refrigerant Handling System recovers 85% of the refrigerant within 30 minutes, according to the company. It then recycles it and evacuates the vehicle's A/C system.
After automatically testing for leaks, the ACS 615 recharges the system with R134a refrigerant, all in full compliance with the SAE J2788 standard.
The ACS 615 features a revolving turret control panel, which houses the following:
* high and low pressure gauges;
* a large, easy-to-read 4x20 LCD display; and
* an intuitive keypad.
The Technician Notification System, vehicle refrigerant capacity database and replacement filter kit are optional features.
Both the NTF 715 and ACS 615 are manufactured for Bosch by RTI Technologies Inc. For more information, visit www.boschdiagnostics.com.
