​Aluminium LOKRING - connectors in use and on the screen

More and more installers change from copper tube to aluminium tube due to the new aluminium LOKRING® connectors. The new VULKAN Lokring product video shows you why.

Wessex Environmental Services Ltd from the UK is one of many air conditioning installation companies which are switching from copper tube to aluminium tube. One of their latest installations was done in Sherburne House School in Chandlers Ford on a Daikin Split Air- Conditioning R410A system.

“The reason why we decided to use aluminium tube was not only the cost saving aspect but also the weight saving and malleability which makes working with aluminium tube so much easier“, says lead engineer James Lee of Wessex
Environmental Services Ltd.Due to the advantages of the LOKRING® technology compared to Aluminium brazing the installation was a lot quicker, especially in difficult to access areas were working with a naked flame can be a real issue. Now, you can learn everything about the aluminium LOKRING® connectors by watching the new VULKAN Lokring product video.

​Green Light for the LOKTRACER

The French chain of workshops Feu Vert has recently started using the trace gas leak detection system LOKTRACE from VULKAN Lokring and is celebrating its first successes with customers.

The French workshop chain Feu Vert with over 400 branches in four countries is one of the 250 most successful franchise companies in Europe. The company offers its customers all kinds of auto repair and maintenance and sets itself apart from the competition above all through its customer-friendliness and speed.

"For many years, the services provided by Feu Vert have also included the detection of leaks in vehicle air conditioning systems", Patrick Peignard, sales and marketing director of VULKAN Lokring explains. "For this, the company is now using VULKAN Lokring's trace gas leak detection LOKTRACE instead of UV dye."
Using the LOKTRACE system, a mixture of nitrogen and hydrogen is filled into the air conditioning. Escaping hydrogen can be detected by means of the hydrogen leak detector LOKTRACER TLD.500. Here the advantages compared to other leak detection methods are plain to see: There is no cross-sensitivity to other gases, which would lead to inaccurate test results.
Due to the molecular size of hydrogen even the smallest of leaks are reliably detected. The evaporator can easily be checked through the air vents in the centre console. In addition, the LOKTRACE trace gas leak detection system complies with the most stringent European laws on leak detection in automotive air conditioners.
Jean Pierre Stefani, Technical Manager of Feu Vert, is delighted with the speed and simplicity of the system: "This is exactly what we want to offer our customers: fast and reliable diagnosis and an affordable solution.
"However, Feu Vert not only benefits from satisfied workshop customers: after extensive tests, the company established that the acquisition costs for the LOKTRACE system would pay themselves off within a few months due to the significant time savings. "Therefore, we can only recommend the LOCTRACE system", Stefani explained. In a letter to its own workshops, Feu Vert advocates the trace gas leak detection system from VULKAN Lokring and encourages the workshops to use it instead of the contrast agent previously employed.
