The entire recharge procedure is completely automatic thanks to hermetically sealed oil tanks, a scale locking and release system and automatic refrigerant weighing.
The 780R diagnosis and recharge station even implements a special procedure to clean all its internal circuits during refrigerant recharging. The machine carries out the flushing procedure automatically in order to clean out the system when changing from one refrigerant to the other. This procedure takes approx. one minute.
Because standard bottles are not hermetically sealed, they always contain a percentage of air. The water molecules in the air bind with the oil and contaminate it. TEXA’s solution was to create special containers which prevent the oil from becoming contaminated by air and humidity. These have been patented. These special bottles can be re-used thanks to a special system which removes the air from the bottle.
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM FLUSHING
In order to guarantee safety and efficiency, it is important that each type of oil and refrigerant are not cross contaminated. TEXA have therefore developed a special automatic flushing function to clean the internal circuits of the service station.
AUTOMATIC BOTTLE IDENTIFICATION
With the introduction of new vehicles, particularly electric and hybrid vehicles, new oils have been introduced for these applications. The correct oil type must be used relating to the air conditioning system to be serviced (eg PAG or POE). It is potentially damaging and dangerous to inject non-compatible oils into the system, so the operator must take care to avoid mistakes. TEXA has developed an automatic oil bottle recognition system which, by comparing the data contained in the vehicles database, signals if the incorrect bottle is in use.
The scales used for refrigerant measurement can be inaccurate when used on uneven surfaces. TEXA’s patented TILT SENSOR SYSTEM analyses the scales horizontal positioning and alerts the operator to the fact that the readings may be inaccurate.
FAN PROTECTION SYSTEM
The new R1234yf refrigerant has been classified as being ‘highly flammable’ and this must be acknowledged by the operator. The KONFORT 700 series air conditioning recharge stations adopts a high efficiency redundant fan system to eliminate any possible refrigerant build up within the unit.
AUTOMATIC LEAK DETECTION MANAGEMENT
The KONFORT 700 series units automatically carry out a dual leak detection check. All safety related operations take place automatically in order to eliminate errors.
