HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vacutec’s High Pressure Smoke Machine (WV711) is recipient of MOTOR Magazine’s 2014 Top 20 Tools Award. Designed for turbo engines, the WV711 uses STAR EnviroTech’s patent pending Smart Pressure™ digital microprocessor technology with special Honeywell® flow device. This overcomes the typical thinning smoke at higher pressures, which plagues conventional analog high-pressure machines, by delivering the densest smoke at any pressure. And with contaminant-free UltraTraceUV® dye, it finds high-pressure leaks that smoke alone simply can’t find.
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.
The award-winning WV711 smoke machine marks the 3rd generation and 20th year of high pressure smoke machines for Vacutec.
