LIGHTNING RELEASES (12/12/2013)- Redline Detection, the industry leader in aftermarket and OEM-approved automotive diagnostic leak detection equipment, has launched a new leak detector called PowerSmoke PRO® developed specifically for high-performance turbo and supercharged engines.  The new technology replicates the full load of a turbo, supercharged or boosted engine so the entire system can be safely tested for leaks or faults with the engine safely off. It is the only diagnostic leak detector available today that can, in a single procedure, reliably detect any high-pressure leak, pinpoint its exact location, and precisely identify failing components. It will be on display at Redline Detection’s booth number 5252 on Machinery Row at PRI from Dec. 12 through Dec. 14.

“Technicians and pit crews have been in desperate need of diagnostic equipment to quickly and safely diagnose issues unique to racing and high-performance vehicles.  The high speeds, high heat and grueling conditions that many of these engines endure, combined with a high expectation for seamless performance, demands the same level of highly refined diagnostic technology.  PowerSmoke PRO will eliminate unforeseen component failures and maintain peak performance,” said Alex Parker, executive vice president for Redline Detection.

“PowerSmoke PRO is the only technology available that can deliver variable pressure, high-density vapor that is 100 percent free of dyes and other contaminants, through the 20 PSI range. It will dramatically change the landscape for technicians in the racing industry.”

This groundbreaking technology delivers six times the volume and more than 40 times the pressure of a traditional EVAP smoke machine and effectively replicates the entire stress/boost of a running engine with the engine safely off. This complete system test with simulated operating pressures allows technicians working on high-performance cars to duplicate high-performance drivability issues right in the service center, eliminating the need for diagnostic test drives and dramatically saving time and improving efficiency in diagnosing repairs. PowerSmoke PRO is the only diagnostic tool available that tests the integrity of the entire boosted intake and exhaust systems in one simple and safe procedure.

Another unique feature of PowerSmoke PRO is its highly visible vapor, which is completely free of dyes and other contaminants. Some OEMs prohibit or recommend against the use of UV dye in leak detection diagnostics as it can coat sensors and void manufacturer warranties.

In addition to being contaminant free, Redline Detection’s PowerSmoke PRO offers the following features:

  • Specifically for Turbo, Boosted, High Pressure Engines
  • Variable Pressure | Variable Flow   
  • Pressure Up To 40X Typical EVAP    
  • Compact, Rugged Design

  • Free of Dyes & Contaminants
  • 3 – 20 PSI Range
  • Performs Decay/Leak Down Tests
  • Weighs Only 19 lbs.

You can see PowerSmoke PRO in action at PRI Booth #5252, on Machinery Row.  Live demonstrations will be held throughout the show.
