Safest and fastest way to recover refrigerant

In keeping with its motto “Powered by your needs”, MAHLE Service Solutions looked into this issue in close collaboration with leading automobile manufacturers and devised a professional technical solution for the safe recovery of refrigerant. The new Recovery Only Unit is a self-contained, light, and transportable device for recovering refrigerant. It resembles a separate refrigerant circuit without electrical components, which is connected to an existing A/C service unit.

In contrast to conventional methods, the Recovery Only Unit from MAHLE offers a fast and, most notably, safe A/C service, in which the safety of people and materials is paramount. In addition, the actual repair or maintenance of the HVAC system can thus commence much

more quickly—within less than 45 minutes. This patent-pending solution, which is one of a kind worldwide, allows repair shops to recover refrigerant from the vehicle’s HVAC system reliably, efficiently, and economically.

MAHLE will present the Recovery Only Unit to the industry for the first time at the Automechanika in Frankfurt. It is currently the safest and fastest method of refrigerant recovery.
