Also could you somehow elaborate on how the freezing/ heating up this thing calibrates it? I like the Idea of field calibratability! What made you guys get into Hvac Products? Are you/ were you in the trade?
FWIW Here is the field calibration procedure for the thermal.
I've done this before.
How much more accurate is this accutool?
Iceman Ive seen them instructions before. Why in the world did you need to do that? How off was your gauge?
The BV is spec'd thru the whole operating temp 32-122°F
Ok I see. All these accuracy number give me a headache. I try to do the best job I can but need to stay within some limitation.. So when are you picking up a Bluvac:whistle::grin2:.
Since my Thermal is new and guys have been using them for a long time I think Ill hang on to it for awhile. I just hate to find out in 5 years that it is an inaccurate POS lol. :gah:
I have been designing tools and technology for HVAC service for 20 years...you have probably used some of my stuff. The BluVac has been under development for 8!!! years. It is new patent-pending technology. There is nothing else like it. We are in the process of acquiring patents, which limits what I can say about the tech, including what makes it tick and the method of calibration.
The product was released this past October. There are a number of them in the field (both beta and production) and I have not had one come back.
We are currently working to get them into distribution, for the time being we can sell directly.
All BluVacs will operate down to at least 32F. Below that, at some (random, due to process variations) point, the oil sensor will kick in. This is described in the troubleshooting section of the manual.
What is built USA vs. overseas is entirely dependent on the sales volume and our Florida factory capacity. This varies. We do not represent ourselves as a "Made in the USA" manufacturer, but the BluVac is currently made here.
well just remember that 99.9% of all systems out there didnt have a micron gauge used on them when they were evacuated, so atleast your doing it right, i have a yellow jacket and jb, so its hard to spend a couple hundred on a tool that i have to decent ones already, maybe i can get my service manager to pay, yea right in my dreams.
but this differently is a awesome looking setup, if i was in the market for one this would be the one i would get. i love the sensitivity.
I just ordered a BluVac today after a very satisfying conversation with both Adam and the design engineer of the BlueVac. When I get it I will be certain to give a review of what I think.
FYI -- it is a new product, and we have been working hard getting it into distribution. It is not easy, or fast.
Is the JB just damaged? Why take it on and of with no pump running? Our you showing us a bad sensor? A voice would have been nice in the video and some light, did you shoot that thing in the dark, I can't watch that for 15 minutes. someone tell me the ending :limb:
I personally believe in the near, very near future, all our vacuum gauges will be built into the manifold.
