Mahle Service Solutions has donated an air conditioning (A/C) service machine to the automotive technology program at Santa Barbara City College in California.
The donation was part of a May 21 heavy duty A/C clinic at Miramar College in San Diego presented by MACS (Mobile Air Conditioning Society).
Thirty-five technicians of all ages attended the clinic. Mahle Service Solutions was the sole sponsor of the clinic.
The MACS clinic included an afternoon hands-on demonstration of the Mahle Service Solutions ArcticPro ACX1180C by Chuck Kinkade, business development manager for Mahle Service Solutions.
In a random drawing at the conclusion of the clinic, the ACX1180C was donated to Bob Stockero, an automotive technology instructor at Santa Barbara City College.
“Receiving the A/C machine from Mahle Service Solutions was a huge surprise and a bonus for attending the MACS training event,” said Stockero. “It will be given to my automotive technology program in Santa Barbara and my students will benefit the most.”
The ArcticPro ACX1180C is the OEM heavy duty commercial version of the Mahle Service Solution’s popular ACX1180.
Mahle says the ACX1180C produces faster service times and higher service accuracy for heavy duty OEM-style A/C servicing and is hybrid certified. It features an integrated printer, three temperature sensors and four pressure sensors, a micron sensor providing greater system diagnostic capabilities, a factory-installed heater belt and a 50-pound internal cylinder to service larger commercial vehicles (as compared to the 30-lb cylinder in automotive version recovery machines).
