ASC 7400 G - Fit for the future

WAECO ASC 7400 G – Fit for the future

Fit for the future: A/C service unit for CO2. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a naturally occurring resource. When used as R 744 refrigerant, it is over a thousand times less harmful on the environment than the still commonly used refrigerant R 134a. Moreover, it has a an excellent cooling capacity, is not flammable and readily available worldwide at low cost. Leading automotive manufacturers will soon bring the first car models with CO2 air conditioners to the roads. As a trendsetter and innovation partner for an eco-friendly and profitable A/C service, WAECO presents its first ASC service unit for CO2 at the Automechanika trade show in Frankfurt. The new service unit comes with many exceptional quality features. » Read more
Today’s automotive A/C systems need to be charged with accuracy

Today’s automotive A/C systems need to be charged with accuracy

The underestimated risk. Several years ago everything was fine in the world of automotive air conditioners. A standard A/C system was charged with about 1.5 kilograms of refrigerant – and it actually didn’t matter if there were 1.3 or 1.7 kilograms of coolant romping about between the compressor and the filter drier, because there was enough leeway in either direction. Those air conditioning systems used to work almost without fail for a long time. And they did so until automotive manufacturers started experimenting with weights and materials where they saw an enormous potential for savings. Today, we are witnessing refrigerant charging amounts of less than 300 grams. 200 grams of refrigerant more or less in these systems can have serious consequences. » Read more
Correct oil separation is the nuts and bolts of A/C service

Correct oil separation is the nuts and bolts of A/C service

Avoid costly damage. The fact that over 90 percent of today’s cars and commercial vehicles is fitted with an air conditioning system makes A/C service a reliable cash machine for automotive workshops. Air conditioner maintenance is not only a good basis for successful business operations, it also protects customers from costly repairs. With the correct amount of refrigerant in the system, the compressor is properly cooled and lubricated thanks to the oil contained in the coolant. If there is too little refrigerant in the circuit, though, the system’s core component – the compressor – cannot be cooled and lubricated sufficiently. Serious compressor damage and chip formation can be the results of this deficiency. » Read more
WAECO Workshop Award 2016

WAECO Workshop Award 2016

Longest serving A/C unit found. When celebrating the production of its 50,000th A/C service unit last year, Dometic WAECO was searching for the oldest WAECO A/C service station still in use. They found it at Bosch Car Service Derichs in Stolberg, a German town near Aachen, where a WAECO RHS 750 has been loyally doing its job for over 25 years now. The good old machine is maintained with loving care by Günter Derichs, who passed his master craftsman’s exams in 1974, the founding year of the WAECO company. The service unit is regularly in use even today, now for the disposal of worn-out R12 A/C systems. » Read more

Both challenges are perfectly met by the ASC 2500 Low Emission A/C service unit from WAECO, which combines economy and environmental compatibility in a unique manner. » Read more

Ready for hybrid vehicles

Hybrid vehicles are different – even in terms of A/C service

No problems going with German makes. The number of hybrid-drive vehicles travelling on the roads is slowly but steadily increasing. First talks with German automotive manufacturers about this trend took place as early as in 2007, because it was considered unacceptable  or workshops to invest in an extra, “for-hybrids-only” A/C service unit. Another topic under discussion was how to prevent safety risks for staff members doing service work hybrid vehicles.As a result of the cooperation, WAECO ASC-series A/C service units are suitable for all hybrid vehicles made by German manufacturers. The only precondition is the use of an A/C compressor oil that has been approved for conventional vehicle air conditioning systems as well as for those used for hybrid vehicles. Another result is that all A/C systems are fitted with the same service connections. This is the only way to ensure both types of vehicles can be serviced with a single service unit. » Read more
