Fluid Fill Tools & Adapters
Every process fluid requires a unique fluid fill tool to properly handle, dispense, and recover process fluids on the production line. We offer semi- to fully automated fill adapter tools for quick and reliable hands-off operation. Our adapter capabilities include pressure and vacuum leak testing, audio/visual signals for operators (LED lights, alarms, stack lights), and full integration and data communication to the customer’s Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES).
The operator starts by selecting a recipe – either by barcode scanner, MES, broadcast, or a push-button. The operator then places the adapter tool onto the vehicle port. The automated fill adapter clamps to the port and proceeds with its automated programming to fill the reservoir.
Our fluid adapter tools can use either pressure filling or volumetric filling:
Step 1: Evac the vehicle for vacuum leak testing
Step 2: Fill the vehicle with refrigerant gas. Pressure leak test with the gas
Step 3: Level Down to the target volume and detach the adapter tool
A volumetric fill bypasses the pressure testing stages and fills the vehicle with coolant to the desired fill line within +/- %5 accuracies.
All of our fluid fill adapter tools have automated clamping options and can be customized to meet unique customer requirements.
Our tools & adapters cover the range of automotive fluids and feature:
- Built-in pressure and vacuum transducers
- Anti-drip and auto-clamp capabilities
- Multi-leveling capabilities
- Ergonomic and lightweight design
- Easy maintenance with instructional videos
All of our tools & adapters are customizable to meet application needs. Take a look at some of the most common tool & adapter solutions for the most common vehicle fluids:
