Core Enterprises, the parent company that designs and manufactures AccuTools products, was founded in 2001 in Coral Springs, Florida, with the express purpose of bringing innovative and high-quality gauges and testers to the HVAC/R and Automotive markets. AccuTools perceived a number of holes in the market when it came to affordable, high-quality testers that met the evolving standards for developing technology in the field. Thus, they have dedicated all of their research, development, and production to the creation of cutting-edge technology in the field of portable electronic testing equipment.
One way that AccuTools is able to lead the field is by keeping design and production centered in the USA. Rigorous quality control and hand-on development is the name of the game with AccuTools products. All the instruments they create provide fast and accurate results that help you get the job done right on the first go. AccuTools owns several patents on their technological advances and have many proprietary manufacturing techniques, which means you get the top-of-the-line tool every time you choose their gauges.
Why are AccuTools Micron Gauges the Best?
Well, a somewhat comical answer to that question is that everyone else tries to copy their technology and design! The real answer and the reason their design is so often imitated (but not duplicated), is that the AccuTools Micron Gauge line represents the best the micron gauge market has to offer. What's that mean? A variety of unique and patented features mean that the "competitors" literally can't compete – the best of AccuTools BluVac is protected from copycats. We'll get into the nitty-gritty specifics below in our discussions of BluVac Gauges, but for now, let's say that some of the most important features offered are: easy calibration without special equipment, automatic self-diagnostics, onboard oil sensor, Bluetooth app communication and reporting, a 1000 PSI Maximum Overpressure, highest in-class accuracy, and a rugged physical design built for the job.
BluVac Digital Micron Gauges
As we talked about above, AccuTools BluVac Digital Vacuum Gauges were developed in a specific and targeted manner in order to meet the demands of the HVAC/R and Automotive field conditions. Areas of unique concerns for technicians, and the same problem areas that BluVac gauges provide solutions for, were sub-par accuracy, loss of calibration, and having to guess if there was oil contamination in the gauge. BluVac Digital Micron gauges solve all of these problems and more, and they also come equipped with a host of convenience features for working and reporting on the modern job site.
Let's go point by point with the problems mentioned, and then we'll have a look at the additional features that you get as you move up the line of BluVac Vacuum Gauges. To address the typical accuracy issues of lesser quality gauges, the BluVac line was developed to utilize a novel thermistor sensing technique coupled with an onboard digital signal processing CPU. This "best of both worlds" (analog and digital) design gives the BluVac Gauges the accuracy of a rack-mounted scientific lab instrument in a rugged and field-ready tool.
To address the issue of calibration, AccuTools designed their BluVac gauges with self-diagnostic technology. In simple terms, this means that your BluVac Gauge will actually test itself against an accuracy standard and tell you if it's out of calibration. The calibration process is easy, as well. The full process is detailed in the user's manual, but you merely initiate the calibration procedure on the gauge. There are clear instructions in the manual for the button sequence. Then, you'll place the BluVac gauge in a Ziploc freezer bag and cool the gauge at a below-frozen temperature. The gauge will then prompt you to warm it up by removing it from the freezer and then "voila!", it's calibrated.
Finally, to address the common issue of oil contamination, the BluVac Gauges are designed with an onboard oil sensor. The gauge will alert you of any contamination, and then you can quickly clean out the problem with isopropyl alcohol. A clean gauge with a fresh calibration and scientific accuracy means you have the right tool in hand for every evacuation job, every time.
Everything above is included with all the BluVac vacuum gauges, so now let's take a look at what you get with each BluVac as you move up the quality and features scale.
The most affordable entry-level BluVac model is the BluVac+ Micro. Again, you'll all those common problem-solving features we discussed, but there are few more exciting innovations as well. The BluVac Plus Micro is Bluetooth enabled for communication to the AccuTools App. This means you can log all of your vacuum testing and stamp them with the time of test and Geo-location. This data is available for report generation in both graphical PDF and CSV format. You can view your vacuum as well either on the compact backlit gauge itself or as a graph on the App.
The next model up is the AccuTools Bluvac+ LTE. This powerhouse gauge has got all the features just listed, plus some great bonuses. Chief among these is a Leak Rate indicator. Additionally, you can view total evacuation progress right on the gauge. Finally, the BluVac Plus LTE also features an analog-style bar-graph on its screen, in addition to the digital readout. If you prefer the vibe of an old-school gauge, this feature will suit you just fine.
Next up we come to the leader of the pack, and the vacuum gauge market in general, the BluVac Plus Pro. As you might have guessed, this gauge contains all of the features we've discussed so far but also packs quite a wallop in terms of extras. If budget allows, this is the best vacuum gauge you can buy and comes highly recommended. First off, you'll get access to two different temperature displays, ambient and saturation temperature. There's also an alarm built-in to this gauge and a Rise-time Analyzer. Finally, it is fully programmable in terms of both Time and Pressure parameters, so you can make sure your evacuations are done just right without even having to monitor the gauge yourself. Coupled with the Bluetooth App features we mentioned, this makes the BluVac+ Pro the most convenient, accurate, and fully-features gauge you will find.
You're now equipped with all the information you'll need to make an informed choice as to which excellent BluVac Vacuum Gauge will meet your demanding testing needs.
