Robinair has released its new R-ID (#16990) and R-ID Plus (#16995) Refrigerant Analyzers, which allows technicians to quickly and accurately determine the refrigerant purity of a vehicle’s AC system. The R-ID and R-ID Plus Refrigerant Analyzers are designed for use on vehicles with either R-134a or the newer R-1234yf refrigerant.
Powered by an internal lithium ion battery, the R-ID and R-ID Plus measures the percentage of R-1234yf, R-134a, R-12 refrigerants, as well as R-22 and Hydrocarbon contaminants. An optional R-12 hose is required for technicians to be able to test R-12 refrigerant. The analyzers also measure the percent air in pure R-1234yf and R-134a refrigerants.
The tools are certified to the SAE J2912 standard and can connect directly to any SAE J2843 or J3030 AC service machine with an external USB port. Each device has a large, easy to read color display that shows analysis results and helps technicians to determine the next step of an AC system service.
The R-ID Plus Refrigerant Analyzer is equipped with the same features and functionality as the R-ID Refrigerant Analyzer but adds an internal printer to print final test results.
