The testo Smart Probes Refrigeration Set has been nominated for Refrigeration product of the year!

We are happy to announce that our testo Smart Probes Refrigeration Set has been shortlisted and is now a finalist at the RAC Cooling Industry Awards 2017 as Refrigeration Product of the Year.

The awards aim to celebrate leading innovations and environmental successes in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry.

This year the competition was fierce and the judges only selected those who demonstrated the very highest standards. We are really proud that the panel of experts judging them considered the testo Smart Probes as to be one of them.

Testo’s Smart Probes have proved hugely popular since their release at the beginning of 2016 and have caused a real stir, attracting attention across the HVAC/R industry. They have been described as a complete “Game Changer” for the industry by some of their early adopters.

Refrigeration system maintenance today’s way

Are you one of many service engineers still working with analog manifolds? If so, you will be all too familiar with the fact there are far too many instruments are used in refrigeration system maintenance. Depending on the refrigerant or task, you need additional pressure and temperature measuring instruments or even another manifold. This results in more expenditure, in addition to the laborious handling and the frequent inaccuracies of measurement.

But wouldn’t it be much more practical if you only needed one instrument for all the maintenance work? Testo’s smart measuring technology including Testo’s App-controlled manifolds and Smart Probes support you in every task to make your daily work more efficient than ever.

 

 

Clearly, digital manifolds are nothing new. However, you can finally use the tool which has already been enriching and simplifying your private life for years, at work too: your smartphone or tablet. In contrast to analogue solutions, Testo’s smart refrigeration technology turns your smartphone or tablet into an efficient all-round tool instead.

This means you can simply measure pressure and temperature values, carry out a temperature-compensated tightness test or get superheating and sub-cooling values automatically calculated and displayed in the App.

 

 

Whereas in the past data had been analysed by printing out the measurement protocol and laboriously saved on the PC, all measurement results can now, irrespective of the measuring location, be graphically displayed and immediately dispatched on site by email – whether to the office or to the customer. And you can also update and extend the list of the most common refrigerants stored on the instrument at any time via the App. That sounds like a smarter way of working, doesn’t it?

This change from analogue to smart measuring technology is particularly worthwhile in the refrigeration industry, because many different parameters, such as pressures and temperatures, along with the superheating and sub-cooling of systems, must be checked here. The App makes additional measuring instruments unnecessary, streamline your entire work process and save a lot of effort as well as loads of valuable time. With Testo, your day-to-day work finally becomes part of your own smart world too.

Refrigeration and VAC measurement – the essential tools to get you through the summer

The heating season may be over for the time being (providing we get more sunshine – this is the UK after all!) but good weather also spells an increase in demand for ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration maintenance.

This week is shaping up nicely in terms of sunshine, and if forecasts are to be believed, there’s more hot weather to come this weekend. In these conditions many of us rely on our building air conditioning and cooling systems to get us through the day.

Luckily testo have just the instruments to make sure the temperature and working conditions stay comfortable. Here’s a round up of testo’s tools to help keep you cool and get you through the summer months:

 

Refrigeration Measurement & Analysis

Our range of refrigeration instruments feature the latest technology to help you to work smarter and more efficiently than ever.

 

Manifolds

Now with 60 refrigerant profiles and the added functionality of leak tests, Testo digital manifolds really are the perfect tool for every job. With the introduction of the new range, no matter your budget or requirements, Testo will have a solution.

Testo’s new Digital manifolds incorporate both the price advantage formerly associated with analogue measurement, and the undeniable precision that only digital equipment can offer.

Smart Probes Refrigeration set

In conjunction with a smartphone or tablet, the refrigeration set is ideally suited to service and error detection on air conditioning and refrigeration systems, as well as their installation.

The compact refrigeration set contains the high-pressure measuring instrument testo 549i as well as the clamp thermometer testo 115i (two of each).

VAC

In order to feel comfortable in a room, particularly during the summer months, correct ventilation and air quality is crucial. Testo offer a wide range of instruments for Ventilation and Air Conditioning Engineers in order to optimise the building climate.

 

Vane anemometers

Our best selling anemometer is the compact testo 417 anemometer kit. With built-in flow/temperature vane Ø 100 mm to measure flow speed, volume flow and temperature, it is perfect for the majority of applications regarding measurement of volume flow.

Accurate volume flow calculation thanks to easy input of duct area. In addition, it is easy to switch to the current temperature reading. The flow direction, i.e. drawn in or blowing, is visible in the display. Timed and multi-point mean calculation provide information on mean volume flow, flow speed and temperature readings.

Volume Flow Hood

Testo’s new volume flow hood testo 420 is the light, precise and convenient solution for regulating volume flows at larger air intakes and outlets. At swirl outlets in particular, the flow straightener significantly reduces the usual measurement errors. This allows users to fulfil hygienic Indoor Air Quality guidelines and stipulations in ventilation and air conditioning systems quickly and precisely, e.g. in industry, office rooms or in cleanrooms.

Handling is especially easy with a uniquely low weight of less than 2.9 kg and ergonomic handles. The measuring instrument can be tilted and removed for more comfortable readout of the measurement values. In addition to this, mobile devices can be used via Bluetooth App integration as a second display and remote control. Users can use the App to finalise and send the measurement report directly on site.

Smart Probes VAC set

In combination with a smartphone or tablet, it can be used to measure air and surface temperatures, air humidity, air flow velocities and volume flows in, on and around air conditioning plants and systems.

The VAC set includes four App-controlled measuring instruments for important measuring tasks performed by VAC engineers: the testo 405i thermal anemometer. the testo 410i vane anemometer, the testo 605i thermohygrometer and the testo 805i infrared thermometer.
