Tafe SA Automotive – Vehicle A/C System - South Australia
This test was administered at Tafe SA, Automotive Department in South Australia. All tests were conducted in the Automotive Workshop at the Elizabeth Campus of TAFE SA.

Compressor failures are the # 1 claims against automotive warranties. Our solution reclaims lost efficiency by removing oil fouling from the inside of the coils. This oil fouling causes the compressor to work harder. The use of our nanotechnology allows the compressor to not work as hard to get the refrigerant through the system and it extends the life of AC systems up to 25%
