HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Dec. 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Ford
Motor Company's Rotunda tool and equipment program has approved Vacutec's
variable high-pressure smoke machine (218-WV711), built in collaboration with
Ford, for its dealerships. Designed for leak-testing turbo charged engines,
the 218-WV711 uses STAR EnviroTech's patent-pending Smart Pressure™ digital
microprocessor technology with a special Honeywell® flow device. It produces
the densest smoke at any pressure and overcomes the thin smoke issue that
plagues analog high-pressure machines. This is Vacutec's 20th year and 3rd
generation designing and building high-pressure smoke machines.

Ford was the first OEM in the world to recognize the value of Diagnostic
Smoke® in 2000, by mandating Vacutec smoke machines featuring STAR Technology.
They purchased and gave a Vacutec® smoke machine to every authorized Ford
dealer in North America. Since then, Ford has continued to approve newer
generations of Vacutec smoke machines for their dealerships.

"We chose the Smart Pressure™ 218-WV711 because of the combination of very
useful features," says David Werthmann, ROTUNDA Product Engineer, at Ford
Motor Co. "The contaminant-free UltraTraceUV® dye in the smoke vapor will be a
big aid to our technicians in finding high-pressure leaks that without a dye
trace couldn't be found. The Smart Pressure is very accurate and simple to
use, and the palm-sized remote is an especially convenient feature."

This year marks the 25th OEM-mandated smoke machine model in about 41
countries worldwide featuring STAR Technology, inside. An additional 22 models
with STAR, inside, have been approved, but not yet mandated by automakers.

The Smart Pressure™ unit won the prestigious Motor Magazine Top 20 Award and
was among the featured demonstrations at the AAPEX automotive aftermarket
show. Its easy digital controls allow for precise pressure adjustments without
fumbling with analog regulators: "Just set it and forget it." The all-digital
unit comes standard with remote control and is self-calibrating and fully
adjustable from 1-43.5 psi (69 mbar-3 bar). It also quantifies leaks with
pressure decay (PSI/bar) and flow rate.
