Valeo Service ready for 2017 HFO regulation
The refrigerant fluid R-134a will be prohibited on the A/C loop for all new vehicles produced from January 2017 on.
Valeo, first carmaker manufacturer on the HFO* loop since 2012, launched via Valeo Service a complete range of HFO refill stations adapted to all professionals needs.
The Valeo HFO refill station range is composed of two versions: the ClimFIill® Pro HFO adapted for professionals and the ClimFIill® Easy HFO aimed to start HFO business. This easy-to-use garage tool is the perfect refill station to start the HFO air conditioning business. With its SuperCharge capacity for a faster refill, its ClimFill® Lock coupler to avoid the loss of refrigerant, and its USB connections, the ClimFIill® Easy HFO is efficient, economical and the perfect HFO refill station for workshops.
The HFO -1234yf gas appeared in the automotive industry further to environmental regulations. The HFO is a substitution refrigerant fluid for the HFC-134a, known for his contribution to the greenhouse effect. While the R-134a has a global warming potential (GWP) of 1430, the 1234-yf GWP is only 4.
The ClimFill® Easy HFO (VS part number 710297) has a lot of advantages that will make it the perfect refill station for workshops.
The 1234-yf ready garage tool has an important operational tank capacity (6,3 kg). It features the ClimFill® Lock coupler that avoids refrigerant gases to be released in the atmosphere when decoupling making the station an eco responsible money saver. The cost of the 1234-yf is important, the savings create by the ClimFill® Easy HFO are thus precious for a garage.
