For more than eight years, ACM3000, the entry-level unit for professional air conditioning service on automotive A/C systems running on R134a refrigerant, has been a successful part of the Robinair range of products. Equipped with the same well-proven technology, Robinair now also provides the automatic A/C service unit ACM3000yf designed for air conditioning systems filled with R1234yf refrigerant. The new device features all basic functions for professional air conditioning service and is designed as a particularly economical entry-level unit for A/C experts willing to maintain or repair modern air conditioning systems running on R1234yf refrigerant.

Fully automatic A/C maintenance routine

With the new Robinair ACM3000yf, refrigerant recovery, recycling and filling is performed fully automatic and highly accurate. In addition, it ensures quick and complete system drying. The required service data for cars and commercial vehicles is stored at an integrated database. As a result, the unit is perfectly suitable for safe and efficient maintenance tasks on all vehicles featuring air conditioning systems filled with R1234yf refrigerant.

In addition, ACM3000yf comes with an integrated oil injection bottle and an automatic flushing function for non-condensed gases. Maintaining the internal filter is particularly easy – and so is the accessibility of the vacuum pump thus easing oil changes. For the documentation of the air conditioning service performed, an optional printer can be connected to print out a detailed customer report.

Therefore, Robinair does not only ensure professional and efficient, but also reliable and environmentally friendly maintenance of vehicle air conditioning systems – now and in future. The hybridization and electrification of vehicle fleets and other powertrain scenarios such as, for instance, fuel cells, place new demands on automotive workshops: For the servicing of modern vehicle’s thermal management systems, they need to have proper knowledge and the right equipment. With its vast experience, Robinair will continue being the best partner for automotive workshops when it comes to A/C service.
