HVAC/R Leader NAVAC Introduces  Industry’s First Smart Refrigerant Charger

NRC62i Smart Charging Unit offers automatic operation for easy, reliable system evacuation and refrigerant charging

NAVAC, the world’s largest supplier of HVAC vacuum pumps in addition to a wide array of tools, gauges, charging machines and other industry-specific items, has introduced the industry’s first smart refrigerant charger. The NRC62i Smart Charging Unit offers automatic operation for intuitive, consistent system evacuation and refrigerant filling.

The NRC62i’s powerful twin-cylinder vacuum pump rapidly and reliably evacuates an HVAC system to the vacuum level calculated by the machine’s algorithm, with progress displayed digitally via a monitor and wireless scale. Upon reaching the calculated vacuum level, the unit automatically conducts dry operation and leak detection and commences the charging function per predetermined parameters. The NRC62i then shuts itself down once charging is complete.

The NRC62i combines strength and precision: The unit offers high ultimate vacuum down to 15 microns and is accurate to 0.05%. Real-time status displays and warnings serve to inform and reassure technicians as the machine automatically performs this once onerous task.

Like many NAVAC innovations, the NRC62i Smart Charging Unit’s calling card is user simplicity. Automating the system evacuation and recharge process is a significant step forward from traditional processes, which typically employ vacuum pumps, manifold gauges, charging scales, refrigerant tubing and other connection devices, and are highly dependent on a technician’s experience level and judgment.

“The NRC62i Smart Charging Unit allows even lesser skilled or novice technicians to efficiently and above all accurately complete HVAC system charging,” said Stephen Rutherford, Director of HVAC Tools Business for NAVAC.

The NRC62i charging unit is a “3-in-1” machine. In manual mode, it can be used as a stand-alone vacuum pump, or as a digital manifold gauge, and its wireless scale can also be used separately as a stand-alone device.

With more than 600 employees and sales in over 80 countries, NAVAC recently launched North American operations in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. The company seeks to meet the need in the HVAC/R industry for user-friendly equipment and tools that are less complicated and save time – both crucial to busy technicians charged with conducting efficient yet exacting service.
