Redline Detection, a provider of OEM-approved automotive diagnostic leak detection equipment, recently unveiled the HD PowerSmoke for heavy-duty trucks, buses, commercial, industrial and agricultural applications at the Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week Show (HDAW) in Las Vegas.
Developed in collaboration with a major American heavy-duty OEM, HD PowerSmoke replicates a high-pressure boost load so the entire system can be tested for faults with the engine safely off. According to Redline, it is the only diagnostic machine in the heavy-duty market that can, in a single 10-minute procedure, reliably detect any high-pressure leak, pinpoint its exact location and precisely identify failing components, saving heavy-duty truck operators and fleets valuable time and keeping trucks on the road. The company says the HD PowerSmoke increases fuel economy, reduces downtime, eliminates come-backs and solves reoccurring DPF problems for good.
“HD PowerSmoke will redefine heavy-duty truck maintenance and repair as we know it,” said Zack Parker, president of Redline Detection. “Take DPF issues for example. Up until now, DPF faults such as excessive regeneration events or plugged DPF filter could be treated by refilling the Diesel Emission Fluid or servicing/replacing the DPF but the truck would just return with the same issues. HD PowerSmoke solves the root of the problem by identifying boost leaks quickly to facilitate a ‘fix it the first time’ maintenance practice.”
