Keeping it cool

Air conditioning from Snap-on

Published:  31 May, 2016

With the summer upon us it is time to invest in your air conditioning kit. The Sun Koolkare range from Snap-on offers air-con recycling designed for modern workshops that deal with all kinds of differing vehicle systems.

The machines are easy-to-use and feature software which will take technicians through a step-by-step sequence of functions to allow them to complete a full service on the system for their customers. It is primed to give a quick return on investment by being simple and quick to use.

Designed following feedback from customers, the range includes the Koolkare Dual Gas Unit, the Blizzard HFO, Blizzard and Blizzard Pro, and the Koolkare HD, which is designed for heavy-duty vehicles. The fully automatic units are all built with the technician in mind, with the aim of making the entire process as easy as possible.
