Unveiled for the first time at the recent 2022 SEMA Show, the new Rotary product line provides North American automotive service professionals with a way to recover, recycle, and recharge R134a and R1234yf refrigerant gases, according to the company's news release.
There are three models launching in the spring of 2023:
- The single-gas R3AC50-A (R134a refrigerant compatible).
- The single-gas R3AC60-YF (R1234yf refrigerant compatible).
- The dual-gas R3AC80-AYF (both R134a and R1234yf compatible) automatically purges between gas changes.
“These A/C machines, coupled with Rotary’s unparalleled service and support network, are an absolute game-changer,” said Ian Wendler, VP/GM for VSG Americas. “We look forward to hitting the market this spring with a product that will increase the amount of workshops can perform – and revenue that can be obtained – as we head into the busy A/C season.”
Rotary said its A/C machines make it possible for service centers to charge more vehicles per year. Each machine can update automatically, receive remote assistance, and connect to other devices, such as printers and smartphones. The new product line is also backed by Rotary’s vast service network.
“Based on the high level of excitement and interest that was generated during their debut and demonstration at this year’s SEMA show, it’s clear we have something that automotive service professionals will want to get their hands on sooner rather than later,” Wendler added.
