A/C recovery unit meets SAE J2788
Robinair and the SPX Corp. announce the R134a Refrigerant Recovery and Recharging Unit. Fully compliant with SAE J2788 requirements, the R134a incorporates many features of the existing model No. 34700Z. A recharging accuracy to within +/-.50 oz. translates into fewer customer come-backs while an automatic lock-out feature prompts technicians of a pending filter change at 100 lbs. of recovery. The new unit is compatible with conventional and hybrid vehicles using electrically-driven compressors. It is designed to give technicians access to optional vehicle database software allowing easy updates on refrigerant and compressor oil capacities per vehicle.
