New acknowledgement for TEXA’s range of products dedicated to the maintenance and recharging of vehicle A/C systems KONFORT 780 is the only “bi-gas” A/C station that has been recommended by the German manufacturer so far.
Starting from the second half of 2016 Mercedes-Benz will introduce new refrigerant gases for most of its vehicles – among which the R1234yf refrigerant – that will allow it to adapt to the latest international regulations which impose the use of gases with less environmental impact. For the maintenance of these new vehicles, the manufacturer from Stuttgart recommends its network of authorised workshops to use KONFORT 760R R1234yf (model already recommended by Mercedes-Benz in its version dedicated to the old gas R134a) and KONFORT 780R, the only “bi- gas” station currently favoured by the German company.
KONFORT 760R represents the state-of-the-art for operations with the refrigerant R1234yf. The management of the maintenance service is completely automated and it does not require the use of a manual tap.
KONFORT 780 has a double tank and double distinct recovery, recycling and recharging circuits. The station, after cleaning the pipes, is able to alternate the services carried out on vehicles equipped with both the gas R134a and the new refrigerant R1234yf. The entire recharging service is completely automated.
Both the stations have a system of hermetic oil bottles, scale lock/unlock devices, automatic refrigerant weight control and a refrigerant identifier.
Both the charging stations are equipped with TEXA’s refrigerant identifier: a device produced and patented by TEXA that identifies if the refrigerant is R134a or R1234yf and verifies the purity; if the gas is not appropriate or contaminated, the charging station warns the operator and blocks the operations.
The range of KONFORT charging stations, which includes nine different models and is protected by various patents, imposed itself worldwide. A success that was also confirmed in 2015, year in which TEXA reached the record production of over 7000 pieces, approximately 3000 of which were configured for the refrigerant R1234yf. All the KONFORT stations are produced in Italy on a completely automated production line that complies with the strictest international certifications.
