What are the uses of a smoke tester machine?
The smoke tester machine is mainly composed of a smoke main engine, smoke liquid, smoke conduit, automobile inlet adapter, and plug kit, and other components. The smoke generating host will charge a certain amount of smoke into the system under test through the smoke conduit and air inlet adapter, and judge whether the system has a leak position by observing the smoke emission position. Automobile smoke machines can help us quickly and accurately locate the location of automobile and motorcycle leakage on the piping system, such as intake system test, exhaust system test, crankcase system test, automobile seal test, fuel tank system test, turbine system test, various pipe fitting test.
Automobile smoke leak detector recommended
AUTOOL automotive smoke machine is currently recognized on the market better smoke machine. It mainly can be applied to all models and has a variety of functions. It has its own air pump and does not need to rely on other machines and sophisticated pressure gauges. Only need to connect the detector with a DC12V battery, after opening can output thick smoke in 30 seconds. At present, SDT106 and SDT206 (upgraded version) are very popular automotive smoke machines. The difference is that in addition to the basic smoke machine function, the SDT206 is also equipped with a pressure gauge, airflow meter, and split air supply system. If you rarely use a smoke machine and only need basic features, then choose the SDT106. It’s also cheaper. If you’re looking for more features, the SDT206 is a good choice.
How to operate a smoke machine for cars?
- Fill 20ml of baby oil into the detector for the first time. Open the engine cover, and hang the detector in the cover.
- Disconnect the pipe that needs to be connected with the detector.
- Connect the detector with the DC12V battery, turn on the power switch, and the detector starts to work.
- In about 30 seconds, the pipe will be filled with smoke. Check the leak points. Please use a headlamp if necessary.
It is important to note that fresh oil should be filled only when the smoke is thin, and no more than 20ml at a time. Before filling the new oil, pour out the remaining oil in the detector and replace the detector oil periodically. In addition, for safety, in the process of leak detection, should be kept away from smoke-sensitive parts.
