Even more service for a healthy atmosphere

MAHLE Aftermarket expands range of HVAC service units

In addition to ACxpert 1000a from Behr Service for R134a refrigerant, MAHLE Aftermarket is now also offering its own unit for R1234yf refrigerant: MAHLE ArcticPro 200yf.

New to the product range: MAHLE ArcticPro 200yf for R1234yf refrigerant
On 1 January 2013, MAHLE acquired RTI Technologies — a US specialist in repair shop service equipment. The aftermarket is now able to benefit from this newly added development and production expertise in fluid service equipment—and particularly in HVAC service units: the state-of-the-art HVAC service unit ArcticPro 200yf for R1234yf refrigerant, which has already been technically approved by several vehicle manufacturers, is now available under the MAHLE brand.

Available since 2011: ACxpert 1000a from Behr Service for R134a refrigerant
MAHLE Aftermarket has been successfully supplying the market with the ACxpert 1000a HVAC service unit from Behr Service since 2011. This partnership enables you as the customer to enjoy twice the benefit: Behr has a wealth of expertise in vehicle air conditioning and Behr Service provides you with an extensive service network for maintenance, servicing, and technical service. MAHLE Aftermarket has a comprehensive sales network and many years of experience in sales and customer service in the independent spare parts business, which was recently extended by the HVAC service segment.

Get your hands on the strong brands for the HVAC check
Your usual contacts at MAHLE Aftermarket will be ready to help with the sale of the HVAC service units MAHLE ArcticPro 200yf and ACxpert 1000a from Behr Service. For you to have access to comprehensive support with the installation, operation, and maintenance of the HVAC service units, MAHLE Aftermarket is consistently expanding its sales and service network.

According to EU directives, since January 1, 2011, HVAC modules for new, type-tested vehicles may only contain coolants with a GWP (Global Warming Potential) of less than 150. From January 1, 2017, onward, this applies to all newly registered vehicles. HFO-1234yf is a coolant that meets these requirements. Because HVAC modules cannot simply be changed over from the old to the new coolant, however, the coolants in common use, such as R-134a, will remain in use for many years.

Repair shops must therefore be equipped to handle both coolants. Service units for both variants are thus available from MAHLE Aftermarket at Behr Service. Important: Please check the gas used in the connected HVAC module, using the measurement sensors fitted in the unit, prior to refilling the HVAC module. Using a coolant that the HVAC service unit is not designed for may lead to a defect.
