Neutronics Refrigerant Analysis, a leading manufacturer of Automotive A/C service technology, now offers an exclusive innovation that protects refrigerant identifiers and recovery machines against damage by detecting the presence of sealants in mobile A/C systems. The Neutronics QuickDetect A/C Sealant Detection Kit is an indispensable tool for every A/C technician and should be used to check a mobile A/C system before attempting repair or refrigerant recovery work. The kit is easy to use and works with both R-134A and R-12 systems.

Sealants Can Void Warranty
Sealants are routinely being added into mobile A/C systems by both professional technicians and vehicle owners as a temporary repair for leaks. However, these sealants can damage A/C service equipment by solidifying in solenoids and tubing. In many cases, the manufacturers of A/C components and service equipment are voiding warranties in instances where damage has been caused by A/C sealant.

Unique, Simple-to-Use Design
The Neutronics QuickDetect system comes with everything needed for a quick and easy test – A/C coupler, hose, test cartridge and flow meter. When connected to the A/C system, QuickDetect is designed to mimic an A/C leak. If sealant is present in the system, it will quickly solidify in the disposable test cartridge and cause the flow meter to show "no flow." Except for the low-cost test cartridges, all of the QuickDetect components are reusable. Additional cartridges are available separately.

Neutronics Refrigerant Analysis QuickDetect A/C Sealant Detection Kit, Model No. ACSD comes complete with (10) Test cartridges, R-134A and R-12 couplers, a test hose, flow meter, syringe and detailed instructions in a custom molded carrying case. Replacement cartridges are available separately in 25-piece packs – Model No. ACSD-25. The QuickDetect kit and replacement parts are available from most tool and equipment distributors as well as NAPA stores, nationwide.
