Volvo and Mack Trucks Choose Redline Detection High Pressure HD PowerSmoke as Essential Tool


Volvo Trucks North America and Mack Trucks chose Redline Detection, the industry leader in heavy duty diagnostic leak detection equipment, to service Volvo and Mack branded trucks at all of the company’s world-class dealer network locations.

“Volvo Mack is leading the field in adopting new technology to maximize uptime and increase maintenance efficiency. This equipment will speed maintenance and repair, as well as ultimately increase fuel efficiency, lower operating costs, and enhance Volvo Mack’s already world-class customer service.” said Redline Detection Executive Vice President, Alex Parker.

Driving millions of miles on the road in various weather conditions, transport vehicles receive a lot of wear and tear over time. HD PowerSmoke simulates the boost load of a heavy duty engine with the engine safely off, quickly pinpointing all upstream component faults caused by those time-worn, jarred, cracked components that are the root cause of hard-to-diagnose after- treatment problems.

More about HD PowerSmoke:
HD PowerSmoke creates a dense, highly visible vapor at a variable pressure in the 2-20 PSI range that can test the entire system and pinpoint unseen air leaks in just minutes, saving valuable time in preventive maintenance and repair, dramatically increasing uptime. The visible vapor is free of dyes and contaminants so it’s safe for the technician, safe for the vehicle, and safe for the environment. “The Volvo brand is synonymous with safety,” said Parker. Redline Detection equipment has been chosen for more OEM mandated tool and equipment programs than any other diagnostic leak detection maker in the past decade. The technology is OEM-mandated / essential equipment in 112 countries.

“Redline has developed a reputation for engineering custom equipment solutions for the world’s leading heavy duty OEMs that improve performance, increase fuel economy, enhance customer service, and increase uptime. We take enormous pride in delivering top quality equipment, on time, on budget, every time” said Parker.
